For Madmen Only: The Stories of Del Close Synopsis:

Comedy guru Del Close, mentor to everyone from Bill Murray to Tina Fey, sets out to write his autobiography for D.C. Comics. As he leads us through sewers, mental wards, and his peculiar talent for making everyone famous but himself, Close emerges as a personification of the creative impulse itself. He’s a muse with BO and dirty needles, offering transcendence despite (or because of) the trail of wreckage behind him. For Madmen Only: The Stories of Del Close streams via Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema beginning July 29.
