I apologize for the weird pun in today’s title, as it refers to the funny comedian Ryan Stiles, from “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” and “Two and a Half Men”, who was born today in 1959. If you haven’t seen “Whose Line”, you are sorely missing out on one of the best (and only) improv comedy show on TV. Along with comedians like Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles is the tallest one usually on the show and he is just as funny as Robin Williams when it comes to improv. His antics on the show cannot be described, however, as you would have to watch them to experience how funny he really is.
Also celebrating this April 22 are; late actor Eddie Albert (“Green Acres”) (1906-2005), late 50s heartthrob Bettie Page (1923-2008), late television producer (and Tori’s father) Aaron Spelling (1923-2006), actress/comedienne Charlotte Rae from “The Facts of Life” (now I really feel old LOL) was born in 1926 and “The Rhinestone Cowboy” himself, Mr. Glen Campbell was born in 1936.
Today is also the birthday of the BEST actor to portray The Joker in ANY Batman film ever, Jack Nicholson, who was born in 1937, cult film producer John Waters (“Hairspray” among others) (1946), 70s rock legend Peter Frampton (1950), and “Meatballs” child actor (now producer) Chris Makepeace was born in 1964.
The final three names in today’s list are; “Magic City” and “The Watchmen” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan (1966), “Tess Mercer/Luthor” from the final seasons of “Smallville” and musician Cassidy Freeman was born in 1982 and “Pineapple Express” and “Zombieland” actress Amber Heard (1986).
I hope you all have enjoyed this “puff piece”, as I am not quite sure what or when I will be here again…with my all-time record for views in a month about to fall (only 50 or so to go in the next eight days)…anything is possible!!!!!
