Julius "Nipsey" Russell (15 September 1918 – 2 October 2005) was a comedian best known for his appearances as a guest panelist on many game shows in the 1970s and 80s, and for his performance as the Tin Man in the film The Wiz. He is often referred to as "the poet laureate of television" because of his signature saucy 4-line rhymes.

- As we remember Abbott and Costello,
As Laurel and Hardy can never die,
Rowan and Martin will not be forgotten,

Fed him poison from a rattlesnake bite,
Gave him the soothing voice of a wild hyena,
And he's 'Man of the Week' tonight!"
