The Ghoul Show

On-Air, Prop Building, Puppeteer, Camera, Set Design, Etc!


May 1997  to June 2001

  • The Ghoul is a long time regular to Cleveland TV fans! As Cleveland's Late Horror Movie Host he has been Helping People enjoy Really Bad Horror Movies for Decades!
  • I started helping the Ghoul as a friend of the Cater, with my knowledge of A/V and Production I was quickly asked to become a part of the team as I could fill in in lots of areas.
  • My main job "OFF" Camera was taking care of the Set; everything from adding items sent in by fans to creating small extra sets for Sketches.
  • My Main Job "ON" Camera was as the puppeteer for "Froggy", The Ghouls Arch Rival! While the Host of the show would create the voice of Froggy I was the person who worked the different sized puppets. But not the full Sized Froggy - We had a great actor that did that for us!
  • In addition to the Puppet Work I also was seen on camera in numerous skits in many different roles!
  • In Addition to all the Show Fun I actually helped with the original Web Site and As Production Assistant for Prestige Media, Where the show was shot, in between shoots
