One evening I was watching I Love Lucy with my family when Bobby the Bellboy came on. My father said, "That's your uncle Bobby. He plays Bobby the Bellboy."
"I've got an uncle on TV?!?"
Though my parents tried to shield me and my brother from my "Hollywood" uncle - famed radio actor Bob Jellison who played Bobby the Bellboy and bit parts on TV sitcoms throughout the '60s & '70s, I eventually tracked my uncle down. He was way different from what I expected. I brought a tape recorder with me, and I learned some Hollywood stories I could have never imagined.
Come see my solo show, "Bobbywood" any weekend this June. Fellow VU members receive complimentary tix.
