When Halloween is looming and you hear about a “Ghostfest,” you might assume it’s some kind of spooky affair. Don’t this time, though, because you’d be wrong.
This event is Torch Theatre’s Ghostfest Improv Marathon. The hotspot for longform improv comedy and all-around creative behavior is presenting 32 straight hours of improvisational fun, featuring local and national acts. Opening night includes Billy Hawk, a troupe from Los Angeles featuring Brian James O’Connell, director of the 2015 horror-comedy Bloodsucking Bastards, and Jeff Hawkins of the Shake Them Ropes wrestling podcast. Saturday includes Ghostfest, Jr., which is family-friendly. Let the humor haunt you at 6 p.m. on Friday, October 21, at the Torch Theatre, 4721 North Central Avenue. Admission is $10 for a six-hour pass, and $15 for an event pass good through October 23. Call 602-456-2876 or visit www.thetorchtheatre.com.
