Generally I don’t find someone coming on stage screaming and putting on a comedy scary voice particularly funny, so it took a bit to get past that and see what Nat Tapley was trying to do. However things picked up when Tapley transformed himself into various other characters. There was a whole haunted house worth of weird, dead people, mostly with a penchant for some kind of crime, which he used for a bit of close-to-the-bone social commentary. The impressions were excellent and there were some well thought out puns. It was more clever and amusing than laugh out loud funny, but a very original piece of comedy.
