Happy Birthday to Rip Taylor!



Happy Birthday to legendary comedian Rip Taylor, who turns 76 today.  You just gotta love this queen - he has made a good living for 40 years out of throwing confetti at audiences.  I wish I'd thought of it...

OMG! Is this guy still around?!?!? LOL I went to the first Jey Leno taping about 15 years ago when Steve Allen was a guest. Jayne Meadows sat behind me and all she did the whole show was powder her nose. And, this crazy man...Rip Taylor came out and threw confetti at me and the audience! I don't know who's crazier....because if I look hard enough in my closet...I will find that tube filled with some of the confetti! LOL

I used to think Rip Taylor was absolutely hilarious when I was a little girl. I still do after watching this old Letterman clip. I'm glad he's still alive, although it seems like he ought to be much older than 76. Is he still performing?

I thought he was older than that, too. Maybe you can be the next Rip Taylor, DD. You're funnier than he is and he was a hoot!
