Funny or Die

Prepare yourself for 32 hours of non-stop improv action when the Torch Theatre brings its annual Ghostfest fundraising event back to their Phoenix stage.

Now in its fourth year, the comedy event boasts performers both local and national -- even a troupe from Australia. The lineup includes acts such as For A Good Time Call Ghostbusters, Mail Order Zombie Bride, and G-G-Ghost Jam. Highly experimental, one-of-a-kind performances will be running overnight for the true improv devotees.

The Ghostfest Improv Comedy Marathon runs from 6 p.m. Friday October 24 until around 2 a.m. Sunday, October 26, at the Torch Theatre, 4271 North Central Avenue. Full event passes are available for $15 and six-hour passes are $10. Family-friendly programming passes are also available for $5. All proceeds go to fund the Phoenix Improv Festival.
