Halloween may have come and gone, but rumor has it the haunting continues at the famous Comedy club on Sunset Boulevard.
LA Times entertainment reporter Lorraine Ali and the crew from “Ghost Adventures” went ghost hunting at the club — and lived to tell the tale. Ali joined Lisa McRee on “LA Times Today.”
Angeles is home to many allegedly haunted places, from the Black Dahlia house to the Los Angeles Police Museum. Ali explained why people believe the Comedy Store has supernatural residents.
“This place was built in the 1930s and from the 1940s through the 1950s it was Ciro’s nightclub, which was a hangout for mobsters like Bugsy Malone, Mickey Cohen. And through the decades they’ve reported growling in the basement. The lights flicker on the stage. Apparently, comedian Sam Kinison has reportedly levitated on the stage, not of his own accord. Anybody that works there, works in the background or the comedians that are there late at night, have had stories of something spooky that has happened to them,” she said.
There are several tools of the trade for ghost hunting that the crew used.
“There is an electronic voice box that will pick up things in the air to channel the voices of the ghosts. They had an EVP, which is a very highly sensitive audio recorder that picks up if they’re whispering in your ear. They also have an electromagnetic meter which picks up spikes and energy in the room. And apparently that’s a great indicator,” Ali shared.
While Ali and the crew didn’t find any hard evidence of a ghostly presence during their hunt, she said she discovered an anomaly that she captured with her phone camera.
“When I got home, I found something on my cellphone. It was like a little floating fleck of light. I sent it to Zach, I emailed it email back, and he’s like, ‘You know, that’s not moving like a piece of dust or reflection off a mirror. That is an unexplained phenomenon on your phone.’ It could be,” she said.
