@ExodusPessoa Hard to believe u don’t know who Flip Wilson is. He was absolutely the greatest

check out the size of Ali`s hand compared to Flips` @4:27. they would knock me into next week
Flip was the greatest!!!
This was APPOINTMENT TV back in the day! Every Thursday at 9:00PM PST,we were there an ready for Flip to just floor us all with his fantastic humor and great characters. I just loved the man dearly! His last TV appearance was in the “What Is Hip?” opening of “The Drew Carey Show”. it was great to see him,if only for a moment. Rest in Peace,Flip. And thanks for posting,gladteck.
I hate to say this but I had a dress with the same colors in it, that was the style back then and we really thought this was ‘fly’. Geraldine was the coolest act on television and this show was highly rated…. I remember this episode with the ‘telephone pocket book’ hilarious!!!!!!
Ali was out talked and made speechless by geraldine!
@gladteck I got some good flip wilson Lps,
” a telephone pocketbook”…. wow….. who’d thunk it?
i thought I could talk, but I met my match! LOL
Let me call him! LOL a telephone pocketbook!! …lol
Flip was ahead of his time…!lol God, i loved this show as a kid..
Flip was so funny, way before his time! All of us suffered a loss when he passed on.
I remember sitting in the car with my dad listing to the Liston- Ali fight on the car radio because it came in better in the car than in the house. I’m 58 years old, white and southern , and I doubt there will ever be another heavyweight champ like Muhammed Ali. He really was the greatest! Not all people from the south are racist, Thanks for posting all these clips of Flip, and especially this one!
KILLA SAID, “DROP DEAD!”
I am 23yrs old and I remember watching this show all the time it used to come on tvland my parents watched it I loved it he was a CLEAN comic I could never watch pryor bc he used profanity all the time but as a child I loved the flip wilson show this is where “the devil made me do it” came 2 life! did you all know that he had 24 siblings WOW!
You wished your momma could look that good.
“Dont hurt him cause he’s one of us” lol! I love Flip!
Mrs. Obama looks better because she’s a real woman.
God Flip was a funny SOB! Sure brings back memories….
TV is garbage today
“Telephone pocketbook”: talk about looking into the future!
Yes, Flip Wilson was a wonderfully talented comedian. He was able to make everyone laugh without the F word in every sentence.
I loved Flip. My aunt would fall on the floor laughing at him when he came on TV.
Sadly he’s no longer alive, but during the 70s, he was really hot–but not as hat as Geraldine!!! Seriously, though, he was a great comedian but he had a genuine warm-hearted persona, sort of like if Perry Como was a comedian instead of a singer. Geraldine was sort of an alter-ego where he could tell more hard-edged jokes without spoiling his likeable persona. Flip was one of my favorite comedians of that time and I miss him very much.
Thanks for posting! Love the Flip Wilson Show
Flip is sadly no longer with us–but it’s fantastic to see so many young people meetinghim and getting to know his work through YouTube! You MUST listen to “The Devil Made Me Buy This Dress”.
They called him Sweet Chariot (because he was always swinging low). Lol.
