Marty Golden was an aspiring comedian who performed at the Comedy Cave in Grandview. However, his comedic style did not appeal to the masses as much as his girlfriend, Sandra Holloway. When Sandra was offered a chance to go to Europe as part of a professional comedy tour, she refused, instead choosing to stay in Grandview to remain close to Marty. Marty tried to convince her to go, and after she continued to refuse, took his own life by jumping off a bridge.
As a ghost, Marty was confused, not remembering taking his own life or even realizing that he was a ghost. He continued to visit the Comedy Cave until Andrea Marino and her friend Melinda Gordon came to open mic night at the club. Marty appeared to Melinda, who helped him unravel the mystery of his death and cross into the light.
