The Ghost Of Christopher Columbus Theater Smudging Spectacular

  • stand up comedy improv comedy diversity sketch comedy storytelling

Every year on Columbus Day / Indigenous Peoples’ Day, the ghost of Christopher Columbus rises from his grave to terrorize Native American people and the day after Columbus Day it’s our responsibility to scare him away with the things he fears most, laughter and jokes from Native performers!
