The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Presents
The 12th Annual Del Close Marathon
Friday July 30 through Sunday August 1
Del Close Marathon 13
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.
Over 150 Shows Over 1 Weekend!
From Friday afternoon August 12 to after midnight Sunday August 14, there will be improv non-stop at the UCB Theatre and other venues. Groups from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Austin, Philadelphia, Toronto, and more, will perform!
