Rip Taylor (born 1934)
Charles Elmer Taylor was born in the Nation's Capital, and hard as it is to imagine, was a Senate Page in his teens. King of game shows and the talk show circuit in the 70's and 80's his outrageous trademarks of confetti throwing and toupee yanking developed over the course of his career.
I personally have memories of him in the late 70's flouncing into Mr. Henry's in Georgetown, always at happy hour, and over the course of the following 90 minutes or so doing an impromptu act; wandering from table to table and all along the bar, 'reading' the patrons. It was always a sort of frightening treat as you laughed and awaited your turn to come under the ax.
Below you can see Rip get wiggy with it at about 1:45.
