Nipsey Russell (15 September 19182 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.


On The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast for Rowan and Martin (1974):

As we remember Abbott and Costello
As Laurel and Hardy can never die
Rowan and Martin will not be forgot
But baby we sure gonna try.
