Cesar Jaime and Jeff Pacocha produce and direct this documentary composed of interviews with former students, friends, and collaborators of Del Close. The film covers not only Del's life and history, but the impact he had on the people in his life and the art form he helped to create.
The Delmonic Interviews includes interviews with: Charna Halpern (co-founder of Chicago's iO), Matt Besser (Upright Citizens Brigade), Rachel Dratch (iO; Second City; Saturday Night Live), Neil Flynn (iO's The Family; NBC's Scrubs), Susan Messing (iO; Second City; Annoyance Productions), Amy Poehler (Upright Citizens Brigade, Saturday Night Live), and Miles Stroth (iO's The Family; Del's "Warchief").
The film has screened at several national improv festivals, including the Chicago Improv Festival, Phoenix Improv Festival, the LA Improv Festival, and the Del Close Marathon in New York City.
