David Howard Thornton

About the Episode

For episode 126, we welcomed actor David Howard Thorton to the show! David is the man behind the clown makeup with his portrayal of “Art the Clown” in Terrifier 1 and 2. David also portrayed the “Joker” in the YouTube series Nightwing Escalation. This is part of our Halloween 2022 Guest Series.

In our episode, we covered how he landed the role of “Art the Clown”, what it was like portraying a silent character that kills, how to balance horror and comedy, the fan reception at conventions as it pertains to them welcoming a new horror icon character with open arms, working with an established character like the “Joker” and making it his own, and much more!
