    Ghost Car Improv Show

    The Playground Theater
    Ghost Car. You'll never see it coming until it hits you and sends you to the funny hospital. This improv comedy troupe has been honing their act together for over two years in residence at the Playground Theater, and their tightness shows through in an onstage chemistry that results in perfectly timed retorts and verbal salvos. You'll be on the floor laughing before you know it, thanks to their highly simultaneously haphazard and crisp comedy routines. This is short-form improv, meaning routines that are only a few minutes long and fed off of audience participation, making for an intimate, and therefore much more hilarious, experience. Enhance the fun thanks to the theater's BYOB policy, or get drunk off the raucous atmosphere alone.
