Giving Old Comics a Modern Voice!

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is what would happen if Garrison Keilor, John Waters and Stan Lee all hooked up after a night of hard partying.

We perform all over Los Angeles and regularly appear at San Diego Comic-con and other events. Our next show is coming soon! Check our FAN PAGE for the latest news.

We are the ONLY group authorized to perform the catalogues of the legendary EC Comics and Famous Monsters LIVE in the world!

We combine the art, drama and comedy of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a variety show. Shows are built around performances of vintage pop culture gems, usually comic book stories, along with live sound fx, music and projected art. In between the featured stories are short acts, sultry singing, prizes, special guests and live music.

No joke is too low or innuendo left un-emphasized.

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is the original pop culture variety show that combines live performance, vaudeville, an old radio show, music and stunning visuals. We bring bits of pop culture, from TV shows to comic books, to life in unique performances that put entertainment first.
