The Joker has been played by many talented actors including Jack Nicholson in the 1989 Batman movie and, of course, Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. He has a complicated personality that embraces insanity but manages to be a cunning criminal that constantly brings Gotham City to its knees none the less. It you've decided to adopt this character as your own for a night, brush up on some Joker mannerisms with our suggested poses below.
The Joker always manages to shock and surprise when taunting Batman or the citizens of Gotham, but it's when he's quietly thinking of his next evil plan that you should be most afraid. Despite his reputation of telling jokes and laughing manically, the Joker doesn't tolerate people who taunt him or get in the way of his goals. If they do, they get to see his serious side and it isn't very nice.
Waiting for the Punchline
See someone acting foolish? Did they tell a boring joke? The Joker is happy to reward their efforts with a slow clap. That'll wipe the stupid smile off their faces. As a master of wit and practical jokes himself, the Joker is rarely impressed with the work of others. He might give them a chance, but will quickly make his disdain known.
