Bozo appears, with and without make-up, on “What’s My Line?”
What a bozo.
I use to watch Bozo when I was a baby, it’s good to see Bozo acting silly afther all these years.
@BurberryShades bozo still scares me. hate him. i like emmett kelly.
I grew up watching the Boston MA Bozo (Frank Avruch) and still have the autographed photo he gave me at a personal appearance at a Brockton MA department store in 1964 or 1965. (Yes, he was in makeup and signed it “Bozo”.)
@funkyinca Phyllis Newman was a NYC area TV personality in the ’60s and ’70s. She was a panelist on a lot of TV game shows during that time frame as well, such as “To Tell The Truth”, “Match Game” and others.
Gordon Ramsey was the second and last NYC based performer to play”Bozo”..Bill Britten was the first entertainer to play the clown.
BOZO look like me in real life
how did she know it was him, the guy soupy sales disqualified himself must’ve told her, she sits next 2 him
Bozo scared me, too, but nearly as much as Pennywise, from IT.
SWEET MOTHER OF FUCK!!!!!
Bozo was hot!
I love bozo i want to buy a bozo puppet
I remember watching Bozo in the 90s as a kid.
Bert Convy died from brain cancer nearly 20 years ago (1991). And perhaps everyone seems happier because (1) they’re on-camera n and have to be; and (2) there weren’t nearly as many 12-Step programs or rehab centers back then.
Somehow, the audience was “in on it” for his appearance without makeup.
Bob Bell would NEVER have done the “out of costume” part of this show, though he MIGHT have done it “in costume” only.
who is that phyllis lady? she was hot !
@greekweasel: That would be Pinto Colvig (an ex-Disney animator and voice artist; he was the original voice of Goofy), who originally played Bozo on those Capitol children’s records [78s in those days] before Larry Harmon, who eventually bought the character from Capitol Records and franchised the character to many local TV stations.
In the cities where there was no locally-made Bozo Show, the version from Boston was syndicated to those areas.
I loved BOZO the Clown I was very sad when I heard he was no longer on
he looks like your mom on the streets with that much make-up
@Olschoolgrl That’s just because you were used to Bob. I’m sure the NY people would prefer Gordon. I myself prefer the Flint, MI Bozo.
Gee, that Bozo was a hottie!
I have always wondered what Mr. Ramsey looked like as he was the voice of ‘ Captain Avatar ‘ on Star Blazers. Now I know. Granted he wasn’t speaking with the ‘gruffness’ of Captain Avatar, but I could definitely tell it was him.
