    Comedian/Actor Rip Taylor has passed away. Well known for his flamboyant style, toupee and confetti throwing. He’s appeared in many television shows including The Monkees, The Brady Bunch Variety Show and the $1.98 Beauty Show.

    I loved Rip! The $1.98 Beauty Pageant was my favorite in College. “You get the prize! You take the cake! You win the crown and a dollar ninety-eight!” I truly admired crazy, flamboyant Rip who created a warm place in my heart early on for gay performers.

    Rest in peace. I used to watch Carson off and on, decades ago, and his style stood out among the comics. It wasn't everyone's cup of tea but I found it hilariously slapstick and always tried to watch when he was on. At first I just didn't know what he was going to do next!

    He was awesome. So flamboyant but at the same time so old school showbiz. Catskills style. Loved him. RIP

    God, I hate confetti. Even worse: Glitter. I’m working in retail again. Christmas season is here. Today I swept up about a half a pound of glitter. Do you want to talk about micro plastics? BAN GLITTER.

    (I can’t believe I called for that in a RIP Rip Taylor thread!)

    I loved Rip Taylor when I was a kid and was bewildered that my mother just hated his performance. I thought he was literally the funniest man in the world. I was right.
