Hailing from Manhattan, Kansas, comedy guru Del Close was a mentor to comedians such as Bill Murray, John Belushi, Elaine May, and Tina Fey. As Close leads us through sewers, mental wards, and his peculiar talent for making everyone famous but himself, he emerges as a personification of the creative impulse itself.
