We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Four characters including Mike Tobacco, Joe Lombardo, and the Terenzi Brothers Rich and Paul were based on real-life childhood friends of the Chiodo Bros, names and all. Mike's full name however is only mentioned in the end credits as well as characters Debbie Stone, and Officer Dave Hansen although a close-up of Dave's uniform in one shot reveals the name tag "Hansen", giving the hero more identity.
The actor John Vernon also had a bit role in Keenan Ivory Wayans 1988 movie "I'm gonna git you sucka" (he played the crime boss 'Mr.Big' at the movies end); he also starred in the comedy classic "Animal House" as the Dean of the college.
In the 1997 PC first-person shooter 'BLOOD', one of the levels features a circus village. The main character enters a large circus tent and there is a huge figure of the clown 'Jo-Jo' from Killer Klowns. Step on the nearby stage and you are treated to a voice chanting 'We Want Jo-Jo... We Want Jo-Jo'. It has nothing to do with the plot of the game, just the game writers paying homage to the film, I guess!!
