Flip Wilson, was an American comedian and actor. Time magazine featured his image on their cover and named him “TV’s first black superstar”. After years of bouncing from foster homes to reform school, 16-year-old Wilson lied about his age and joined the United States Air Force. His outgoing personality and funny stories made him very popular; he was even asked to tour military bases to cheer up other servicemen. Claiming that he was always “flipped out”, Wilson’s barracks mates gave him his famous nickname. During the 1960s, Wilson became a regular at the Apollo Theater in Harlem and was a favorite guest on The Tonight Show, Laugh-In, and The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1970, Wilson got his own television program, The Flip Wilson Show, debuting on NBC. He played host to many African-American entertainers, including The Jackson Five, and performed in comedy sketches. He greeted all his guests with the “Flip Wilson Handshake,” which started with hand slaps and progressed to hip-bumps. The Flip Wilson Show aired through 1974, generating high ratings and popularity among viewers and winning strong critical acclaim, with an unprecedented 11 Emmy Award nominations during its run, winning two. Wilson also won a Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Television Series. Source: BlackTopTens
