“This is a really bad cruise.”
 
This short line is an example of one of my favorite comedic devices, understatement. After several attempts on his life and four murders aboard the reunion cruise ship Thanatos, former high school hunk Steve Furline delivers such a simple and understated line that we laugh from the sheer audacity of his inability to say something proportional to the magnitude of the crimes. As a stand alone line, it’s not funny, but in the right place and delivered with the right timing, it gets big laughs. Another of my favorites devices is the pun. Murder Ahoy is filled with puns that will often make you groan. The ones that are the most fun are those heard, but not caught until several lines later.
