The 10th annual Ghostfest — Friday, October 23rd & Saturday, October 24th — is a marathon-style of improv comedy shows produced by The Torch Theatre as a fundraiser for the Phoenix Improv Festival (April 2021).
This year, Ghostfest will be livestreamed by The Torch and will feature 50+ shows over two days. It all starts on Friday, October 23rd at 6:30pm.
Some of Phoenix’s most popular improv shows will step into cyberspace and we have a sweet roster of out-of-town performers beaming in from Tucson; San Diego; Los Angeles; New York City; and Helsinki, Finland. This is all in addition to one-of-a-kind experimental & wild late night/early morning shows!

(But as a 501(c)3 volunteer-run arts nonprofit in Phoenix and the producer of the Phoenix Improv Festival, The Torch always appreciates donations!)
