About Del Close
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 in 1999 to celebrate their mentor and keep alive his name and teachings for future generations.
