DEL CLOSE MARATHON XII CHEAT SHEET

Neil Casey, Kat Toledo and Bobby Moynihan at DCM X | Photo: Eric AppelHere's probably the best tip for anyone attending DCM XII: There will always be something funnier happening on some other stage. You simply can't see it all, so there's no point kvetching about it in line. Like a great improv scene, true DCM enjoyment comes from discovering and witnessing an awesome improv moment when you least expect it. Yes, there are shows worth sitting "criss-cross-applesauce" for three hours and suffering deep-vein thrombosis, but there are also random shows at random hours that will rock your face off. My favorite example is the Death by Roo Roo show at 6AM Sunday, probably seven years ago, when the boys burst forth from backstage, screaming at the audience to wake up before launching into scenes involving a "Guido Greedo," serial-killer roommates and a plumber who gets sexually harassed by a series of residents, each of whom takes a turn sitting in one chair. I cackled punch-drunkenly at Neil Casey, getting tagged to get up from the seat: "Yeah, yeah, I'll get up. If only so it'll move things along!" -- Keith Huang and Lucas Hazlett

    A world that is going forward in the form of a huge competition composed of million little competitions through the twenty-four hours a day is a reason enough to explain why education is necessary for the survival of a man in this world.
