Svengoolie -The Secret Origin Of Rich Koz

Today Rich Koz aka Horror Host Svengoolie . A Chicago TV institution now a national celeb thanks to MeTV. Rich started as Svengoolie in 1979 when every big city  still had local television entertainment . Every weekend he’d host a classic or cheesy horror film and do jokes parody songs and comedy sketches inbetween film scenes. He was there after the original horror hosts of the 50s and 60s like Vampira and Ghoulari but Well before Elvira and Mystery Science Theater 3000. As Rich points out each show has its own style.

We talk about how he makes his show the movies and celeb guests and shout outs he’s recived from many pop culture stars. We also get into our mutual love of the 3 stooges and stooge mysteries like The Fake Shemp films. Catch Svengoolie every Saturday night at 8pm Eastern on MeTV
