Dave, that's a great question!Originally Posted by Theatremacabre
I do use humor. I think it's very important that you do. Besides, get them laughing and they let their guard down which is the perfect time to scare them.
I'm not much for lots of blood and gore in my haunt. Besides, when I try, it winds up looking like something out of a kiddy's cartoon. My talents don't lie there. However, I CAN make people laugh and scream. I use humor in the Greeter's speech at the beginning. I use it with certain things in my scenes. They are not always visible to the average person, but those who see it will find the humor. Some of the characters I create are also funny yet in a scary sort of way. Using a clown clinic theme this coming season calls for LOTS of humor of which I am looking forward to.
