Rip Taylor, Flamboyant Television Comedian and Actor, Dies at 84

Mr. Taylor was known for his wild design, his mustache and his affinity for labels, amongst them the King of Confetti and the Prince of Pandemonium. “The Simpsons” parodied him. He appeared regularly on the yearly Labor Day telethon hosted by Jerry Lewis benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
