No gong from the Grim Reaper for Chuck Barris. The game show impresario is 80 today — born in 1929.
Here’s a Barris photo from 2006.
“Chuck Barris and guest at Christie’s 40th anniversary of Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. New York, 3 March 2006” is the caption provided by our friends at WENN. (Nice guest, Chuck!)
As an aside: I think we can just about put to bed the legend of Tru‘s famous oh-so-super-duper Black and White Ball. God bless the old scribe and all, but it was just a party.
Though we’ll need a 50th anniversary party in 2016, of course. Barris can attend at age 87!
