Affirmative Action at Del Close Marathon

  • UCB 153 E 3rd Street New York, NY 10009 (map)


AA sees the value of being the "other," and we use our differences to our and your advantage. Our wide variety of experiences with the white, straight, liberal elite fetishizing us makes for great improv and fun times. Sure, life isn't always about race, but when it is, give us a stage to yes and all the way

Meet the six fierce women of color who made the connect at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Diversity Program:

about the Del Close Marathon: 

The Del Close Marathon is the largest improv festival in the world, and was founded by the Upright Citizens Brigade in 1999. The first DCM had 36 shows in 30 hours at one venue. In its 19th year DCM has grown to 3 days, 10 stages over 700 shows and panels. Over the past 19 years DCM has slowly turned into a festival not only celebrating the man responsible for turning improvisational comedy into its own art-form, but DCM is also now an inclusive celebration that embraces and brings together voices from around the country and world all in one weekend through the use of the art form of comedic improvisation.
