Tickets and Info at DelCloseMarathon.com!

Last year at the Del Close Marathon, TCGS put together a show where you were able to enter a series of tents to hang out one on one with your favorite members of the TCGS family. It was interactive and weird and super fun.

This year we’re upping the ante by linking you up with cast members so you can FIGHT other cast members and other AUDIENCE members. It will be a tournament unlike anything the world’s ever seen, with your favorite public access absurdist goofballs honoring Del Close in a series of competitive trials.

It’s going to be interactive theater of the most competitive and perhaps physically risky caliber.

I don’t know if anyone else in America feels this way, but the past few years I’ve been into this TV show called Game of Thrones, and the book series it was spawned from. And that gave me an idea – why can’t we try to live for one night in a world that works like that world? Why can’t we layer the TCGS universe on top of a pseudo-medieval society, then hold a tournament where actual audience members compete in a tournament where they face off for an ultimate prize?

WHY NOT?

Here’s how our show at DCM will work this year…

This is crazy and fun.

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

god damn

I sent this in to Talkin’ TCGS, and since it didn’t end up on the podcast, I figured I’d post it here. This is the culmination of a couple of months of thinkin’.

Chris Gethard - Captain Jonathan Archer of the Enterprise NX-01 (Star Trek: Enterprise)
Although…

Honestly thrilled!

I know this may be basic to many of my artist and nerd friends but I’m really proud I taught Argos to walk.

Talking is next.

Amey and I are very pleased to announce the roster for SUPERNOVA Round 5.

122 people submitted for what we intended to be 40 slots but was again expanded to 48 to suit the overwhelming quality and diversity of applicants.

Of the pool, we chose people fresh out of early level classes and people…

When I was a freshman in high school, I made a series of battle plans along with my older brother and his friends that detailed how we’d take out our entire school once we obtained guns and bombs.

This happened while huddled over my dining room table, and it was funny….

Agreed.
