―Lazy Masquerade's Outro

Samuel Ayling (born: September 7, 1991 (1991-09-07) [age 28]), better known online as Lazy Masquerade or Lazy, formerly known as Aylingater77, is an English YouTuber from Surrey, England, who is part of a community of YouTubers known as Horror Narration channels. Unlike some horror narrators, Lazy narrates stories from categories that other horror narrators don't cover, such as Private Investigator Stories and Yandere Horror Stories. Lazy is well known for his English accent and the Hannya Mask he used for his YouTube avatar.


Despite joining YouTube in 2006, Lazy didn't officially start making horror narration videos until May of 2015 (6 Scary TRUE stories to Keep You up at Night). Lazy Masquerade narrates mostly "Scary True Horror Stories", and will periodically upload a compilation of his top horror stories during a certain month span (i.e from September to December or from January to March). Lazy Masquerade has made collaboration videos with another horror narration channel, Mr. Nightmare.
