Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Freddie Prinze

Did you watch the popular 70s TV show, “Chico and the Man?” The very popular comedian and actor, Freddie Prinze, starred as Francisco “Chico” Rodriquez. He released a comedy album recorded at Mr. Kelly’s in Chicago called “Looking Good.” His biggest breaks came on the Jack Paar and Johnny Carson shows. Freddie made several appearances on the Dean Martin celebrity roasts and can be heard in the background of the title song of his friend Tony Orlando’s album “To Be With You.” Freddie was married to Kathy Cockran with whom he had Freddie Prinze Jr. He and Kathy had marital problems, and weeks after their divorce he took his life. Months before his death he had signed a five-year, $6 million contract with NBC television.
