The Monster CFT plays an important role in moonshine and is also conjectured to be the holographic dual to pure gravity in AdS3. In this
talk, I shall discuss recent results on entanglement entropy of this theory using twist operators. These CFT results strikingly agree with holographic calculations of the same quantity using one-loop partition functions on handlebody geometries.
