15th Anniversary Del Close Marathon
Friday June 28 - Sunday June 30, 2013
From Friday afternoon June 28 to after midnight Sunday June 30, the UCB Theatre in NYC hosts a long-form improv marathon. Groups from all over the country and world will come to NY to honor Del Close, the legendary improv director and teacher.
Ten Million Shows
Del Close was the driving force behind improvisational comedy in Chicago for over 30 years influencing Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Mike Myers, John Belushi, Chris Farley and the Upright Citizens Brigade to name a few. After Del's passing in 1999, the UCB started the Del Close Marathon to celebrate their mentor and keep alive his name and teachings for future generations.
