Several people who have worked at the store have claimed to have encountered several spirits and have had other strange occurences. One worker claimed that a metal gate that had the fire extinguisher behind it would continually open and close for no apparent reason. Two workers claimed that while in the basement of the store, a strange dark mist appeared and the workers felt that it was a bad presence, so they left. No one can explain why the Comedy Store appears to be haunted.
