Son of Svengoolie - "Boogie-Woogie Bogeyman of Berwyn"

I found this really cool piece of local Chicago area comedy television on You Tube.

For many years I have been a big fan of local Chicago area comedian / television host Rich Koz.

Rich Koz made his comedic televison debut on WFLD Channel 32  television in Chicago during 1979, with a show entitled "The Son Of Svengoolie". This was a horror movie televison show, that was intermixed with comedy sketches and song parodies, as well as several announcements and birthdays read on the air.

Rich Koz worked in the channel 32 studio during the early 1970's, with the original tv horror show host
Jerry G. Bishop, who was known as a "Hippie" tv horror show host character known as "Svengoolie".

Today, Rich Koz now hosts the "Svengoolie Show" on late night Saturday night televison on WCIU Channel 26 in Chicago, as well as a popular show for all of the devoted Chicago area "Knuckleheads" known as "Three Stooges Stooge a Palooza".
