Jim Lamorre,also known as S.C.A.B. the Clown, started his acting career in Omaha, Ne, at the age of 5, doing commercials and promotional videos for Nickelodeon, YMCA, and Model Search America. At 15, his acting became focused in the haunt industry. He began to work at Mystery Manor, a local haunt that was only a few blocks away from his high school. From there, the opportunities became limitless in his eyes. Jim became a traveling guest actor in 2007 and has not stopped since. 

In 2013, Jim graduated from Mississippi Valley State University with a degree in Non-Verbal communications. Taking this knowledge of human interaction, he used it in what he loved most, the haunt industry. This helped transform his acting to the next level. Since 2005, Jim has been a featured guest actor at Scary Acres (Omaha,Ne) Mystery Manor (Omaha, Ne) House of Shock (New Orleans) The Terror Test (Lumberton, Ms) Halloween Horror Nights (Universal Studios) Phobius (St Louis) CreepyWorld/ Lemp /The Darkness (St Louis), The Walking Dead, 2001 Maniacs; Field of Screams, and has even been featured in the WWE.
