A funk prism, also known as an n-gonal funk prism, is an isochoric polychoron with 3n – 2 sides. More specifically, they are a subset of the gyrochora, and are equal to the (3n – 2)-n gyrochora. The cell of an n-gonal funk prism contains 2 isosceles n-gons, 2 isosceles pentagons and n – 1 kites. The dual of a funk prism is a funk tegum. As n approaches infinity, they start to resemble the 3,2-coiloid.

The term was first coined by Jonathan Bowers.
