What are some of the best Halloween sketches/standup/longform jokes that you know?

I'm going to be in a Halloween theatre restaurant and there are many gaps in the script. I'm not planning on plagiarising but I would like some inspiration. There are far too many Dad jokes and puns on ghouls so far.

Bill cosby's chicken heart.

There is also the classic shaggy dog story that ends with "tag, you're it!" Which I think is a fun one to tell to kids.

Stuff that comes to mind for potential inspiration:

Linus and his story about "the great pumpkin" on Charlie Brown.

Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Beetlejuice, both the cartoon and the movie.

More inspiration: the Simpsons, Treehouse of Horror episodes, particularly the ones involving Halloween parties. Favorite moment:

Marge: Oh, Homer, you're not going as a hobo again are you?

Homer: Going where?
