1986 Cable Access Interview of Del Close

Brian Stack (most recently a writer for Conan) shot this interview with Del Close in 1986.

Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America says:

When [Brian Stack] was 19, he was an intern at a public access station, and he made this video report. The subject is Del Close, with whom Stack had just started his first class at the Improv Olympic. [...] The video is in black and white, because Brian accidentally set the camera to "monitor" mode, but it's a totally amazing time capsule and about 10 minutes of wisdom from the greatest guru of improvisation.

In included footage of performances caught glimpses of Dave Pasquesi and Mick Napier (with hair!).
