The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Presents
The 8th Annual Del Close Marathon
Friday, July 28th through Sunday, July 30th
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 to after midnight on Sunday, there will be improv non-stop at the UCB Theatre. Groups from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Chapel Hill, Austin, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, St. Louis and Toronto, will peform on one of three stages.
Weekend Passes will cost $20 and are only sold at the door. You cannot make reservations for most of the marathon. Just come to one of the venues, buy a $20 pass and see as much improv as you want over the weekend.
Reserved tickets are available for many of the prime time shows at the Abingdon 1 Theatre and ASSSSCAT. For these shows you will be able to reserve your tickets and pay for them on line. If there are seats available at showtime, those with passes will be admitted on a standby basis.
