WHAT SMELLS FUNNY? (ROASTED CLOWN!)


Here's the spot that ran on Fox (Columbus, Ohio):



  THE FLIPPO ROAST

He called it one of the best nights of his life.  Bob Marvin appeared onstage as Flippo,
the King of Clowns one last time.  It was a special night that we captured for TV.

Executive Producer, Host
 

Here's a whacked shot of me hosting by a great fan Richard.  See his caption below:

                        "Mein Klownf"

ANGELA PACE of WBNS 10TVkicks off the show with a Flippo rap.  (You can
even see her red clown nose!)

 Classy entrance: two jesters carried him in on a stretcher.
 

The Royal Funny One speaks to the Roast crowd.  He was short and sweet in his opening
remarks, thanking everyone for coming.

Channel Ten Legend CHUCK WHITE kills with his "Why are we giving this man a dinner?"
bit.  (Of course we had to sing "Hi, there Mister Tree" to get him to come up.
 
 

Everybody's favorite weatherman (that's what they were called then) JOE HOLBROOK
recounts his favorite Flippo tales.
 
 

MARK "DADDY WAGS" WAGNER of Qfm fame is the last Roaster to broil The Clown.

Wags finishes his remarks with a poignant message from Bexley's-claim-to-fame writer
BOB GREENE.
 
 

The Clown was miked all evening. He was back in his perfect-Flippo-old-school form.

Last words.  He told the "I didn't want to spend that much" joke.
 

My pal in the audience: DOUG FAWCETT in the spirit of things.  (That's his actual nose.)
And you're right, he does look like Steeler great Terry Bradshaw!
 
 
 

And here's Doug as FLIPPO ....

 
 
 

My buddies STEVE, ANDY and PAUL before the Flippo Roast.  Note the cool mural
on the wall behind them.  Below is a blow-up of that art by BECKY O'NEIL:
