In this unusual tour, you ride in a big, open-air purple bus and watch actors and comics do comedy skits and over-the-top routines about the wacky side of Asheville. If you're 21 or over, you can bring your own wine or beer (no hard liquor) on the bus. In peak periods such as summer and fall weekends, LaZoom has three or four tours a day, including 90-minute City Comedy Tours, 60-minute Haunted Comedy Tours. Due to the slightly risqué comedy routines, riders must be at
least 13 on the ComedyTours and 17 on Ghost Tours. Haunted tours leave from the Thirsty Monk at 92 Patton Avenue; city tours leave from the French Broad Co-Op at 90 Biltmore Avenue. Some tours sell out, so it's best to buy in advance by phone, online, or at the LaZoom office; if seats are available you can buy when boarding.
