Yorick Is Moving Up In The World… Or Down…

, , , , , | Working | August 23, 2021

Back when my dad was young, he had a gig as a horror host for a local theater. He would portray a character similar to John Zacharle’s “Roland”, do some skits, and introduce whatever scary movie was playing.

One such performance involved a skull as a prop. When the bit was over, my dad went up to the balcony to watch the movie, setting the skull on the railing in front of him. Unfortunately, he got rather engrossed in the film and leaned a little too far forward, accidentally knocking the skull over. He leaned over the railing to try to grab it but was too slow. It landed in the lap of a woman who then looked up and saw my dad, still in full costume and makeup, arms reaching towards her.

She let out a blood-curdling scream, and the house lights came on. Luckily for my dad, people thought it was part of the show. I guess the lesson here is to never lose your head in a situation.
