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.
