First Crush was the improv group you made out with at recess in the second grade and married behind the dumpster in sixth.
*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 650 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.
