Griffin GM’s the Hideous Laughter podcast’s flagship Carrion Crown run, homebrews the Evil Interlude, and co-hosts of the Zone of Truth podcast. As frequent GM and full-time CEO of Hideous Laughter Productions, Griffin not only decides the creative direction behind his plans to kill his close friends’ favorite PC’s, but he gets to actually act on those impulses as well!
Haley plays several characters across the various Hideous Laughter Productions shows and has GM’d the cult classic April Fools hit Pavlos and Pals. She’s an avid consumer of books on tape and all the strangest lore Pathfinder has to offer. With years of experience both playing characters and acting as GM across different Paizo systems, Haley knows just the right character concepts to keep things fresh! Haley serves as Chief Financial Office of Hideous Laughter Productions.
Player on many of the HLP shows and co host of the Zone of Truth podcast, Steve is obsessed with all things nerd-culture and is getting to live that out on the show! As Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, he handles both public and internal relations, making sure Hideous Laughter Productions remains compliant with any and all legal regulations as well as representing the Hideous Laughter brand in a positive light.
Emily is the resident craft artist at the HLP and you can always catch her knitting in between episodes or starting some new project! Emily serves as Chief Marketing Officer at Hideous Laughter Productions and is a key member on the network for tracking resources and keeping her fellow PC’s alive!
An avid technology consumer and Chief Technology Officer for Hideous Laughter Productions, Brooks helps ensure that the HLP is equipped with the best recording technology and hardware possible! Having played in several campaigns with the Hideous Laughter team, his teammates can always count on one thing -- Brooks is and always will be the wildcard at the table!
