I had so much fun chatting with one of my favorite people, Dick Debartolo on his “The Giz Fiz” show last week. It’s was “Skype”-tasic!

Dick has been writing for Mad Magazine (The Usual Gang of Idiots) since he was a teen in 1962, starting with issue 69.  He’s written such classics parodies as The Poopsidedown Adventure, Jawed 2 and many, many more.

Dick was also responsible for saving The Match Game from cancelation when he introduced the funny questions instead of the straight ones of the past that lead the show to it’s heyday.

Catch Mad Magazine’s “Maddest” writer and The Giz Wiz, Dick DeBartolo as he host’s the weekly “Giz Fiz” show live on TWiT.tv each Saturday at 5:00 PM (EDT).  It’s was “Skype”-tasic!
