Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Rip Taylor

This guy was crazy, way out there. And he’d be the first to admit that. You wouldn’t know it, but Rip Taylor worked as a Congressional page and served in the Korean War. During the war he performed stand-up comedy for the troops. After his years of military service, he did nightclub comedy. He’ll explain how he got his start in television. He became a regular in Las Vegas, opening for Frank Sinatra, Ann-Margret, Judy Garland and Sammy Davis Jr. He appeared in episodes of the Monkees and the Brady Bunch. You have seen him on “Hollywood Squares,” “The Gong Show,” “Will and Grace,” and “The Match Game.” He also hosted “The 1.98 Beauty Show.”  Rip was on Broadway and made several appearances in the movies. He appeared as himself in “Wayne’s World 2” and was Demi Moore’s boss in “Indecent Proposal.”
