Nipsy Russell Died

Wed Oct 05, 2005 5:21 am

Just saw on the news where comedian Nipsy Russell has passed away.
Nipsy also opened some of Elvis' shows in Lake Tahoe in 1971. One thing I remember about him was his appearances on the tv game show "Match Game", always seamed like a funny and nice guy.

BBM,
Yeah, I mentioned this in another thread. Nipsey was a staple on '70's game shows like The $25,000 Pyramid. He was always pretty funny, despite those corny rhymes.

For those who have GSN, I read that GSN is scheduling a tribute to Nipsey next week - thye will be showing a series of his appearances on the classic game show "Match Game".

There's a nice write-up about Nipsey on the tvgameshows.net site
