The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Presents The 7th Annual Del Close Marathon

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.

How does it work?

From 4pm, Friday til midnight on Sunday night, there will be long form improvisation on the UCB stage. When one show ends, the next will begin (usually every 30 minutes). It's a nonstop cavalcade of the best improv from NYC and around the country, mixed in with some of the strangest late night improv shows you may ever see.

This is a very special opportunity to sample The Funniest comedy in the country.
