Bio

Spooky Ghost is a New York City based Lloyd Team at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. They were one of the original four Lloyd Teams, and the first team to audition together and get placed as a complete team. They perform harolds on Lloyd Night at the UCB East Theatre. Their first show was April 4, 2012.

They began as a harold-focused indie team and for some time hosted a weekly improv show in the dingy basement of The Triple Crown.


On April 26, 2012 they battled Airwolf in Cage Match. They performed a Bat to a packed house, and though they lost, the critical reception was tremendous with highlights including a talking capybara and Trowbridge's mouthbreathing Jeremy character.

In May of 2012, Molly left to bike ride across the country. Allie Kokesh joined.

In September of 2012, Molly and Matt Cohen were added, Allie Kokesh was moved to a different Lloyd team, and Matt Dennie was moved to Harold Night.

Trivia

  • Alex French speaks 8 languages.
  • At the time they were made a house team at UCB, only two other indie teams in the history of the theater had been made Harold teams in their entirety out of independent groups: Reuben Williams and The Law Firm.
  • Alex French never received a call from Nate after auditions, it is unclear if he is an official member or just a regularly performing guest.
