Hunt’s 70th Birthday Patreon!

I’ve started a brand-new Patreon page to help get Hunt’s biography off the ground! It features patron-only sneak peeks at the book, excerpts, clips and updates on my progress! “Official unveiling” and new posts on August 17th (what would be Hunt’s 70th birthday), but it’s already launched if you want to check it out! So glad to share my hard work and my findings with all of you!

Great Goelz Shoutout!

Dave Goelz gave a great shoutout to Funny Boy: The Richard Hunt Biography in this recent podcast. “There’s a woman writing a book about him which I’m always after her to get finished, because I want to read it. It looks like it’s going to be really, really good.”

Don’t worry, Dave and everyone, I’m working as fast as I can! (The shoutout is around the 1:17:00 mark.)

Thinking of Hunt today on the 19th anniversary of his death.

RIP Phyllis George

Phyllis George wasn’t just Miss America and a sportscaster; she was The Muppet Show‘s best guest star! (At least according to them.) Her death reminded me of when the Muppets bestowed that title on her, with this great song from Richard Hunt.
