Who You Gonna Call . . . Improv Everywhere

If you love spontaneous scenes of delightful chaos in public places, you’ll love Improv Everywhere, the comedy group behind hilariously thoughtful and well-executed pranks like the No Pants Subway Rides, the blue shirt storm of Best Buy and my personal favorite, Ben Folds Fake. Founded in 2001 by South Carolina native Charlie Todd, a frequent fixture at the Upright Citizens Brigade, the group has executed more than 100 missions to date. Their latest gag, a reenactment of the opening scene of Ghostbusters in the New York Public Library (the big one with the lions on 42nd Street), doesn’t disappoint.
