Colorado you’ve got talent representatives have procured the services of local comedic troupe The Hilarigoons made up of Corey Quattlebaum and Jeremy Benton.

Comedian Corey Quattlebaum was quoted “Dude, this should be like a live action Scooby Do” and “Do I get a Ghostbusters proton pack?”
Ghost hunter Bobby Vargus added “This guy is probably going to crap himself. He has no idea what he’s in for”.
