Gordie Tapp has been making audiences laugh for more than 60 years.
Johnny Cash called him "the funniest" and Foster Brooks introduced
him to President Ford as "the world's greatest story-teller." Born
in London, Ontario, in 1922, he has been married to Helen for 62
years. They have four children. He graduated from Lorne Greene's
Radio Arts Academy in Toronto in 1947 and helped launch a radio station in
Niagara Falls. A radio pioneer,
he switched from playing dance band music to country music - and
never looked back. He started country music shows on television in
Canada for the CBC in the late 1950s-early60s and then helped launch
Hee Haw in the United
States - a show that ran for more than 25 years with a weekly
audience of more than 50 million - with his Cousin Clem character.
Gordie loves to ride horses and Harleys and he was roller-blading
until he was 82.
