The Amazing Lypsinka Brings Back Memories

The amazing Lypsinka was here in our studio!

John Epperson’s iconic alter ego stars in “Lypsinka: The Trilogy,” opens this Wednesday at The Connelly Theater. Of course, that meant heading to YouTube for clips and previews of what to expect from the show, and that search led to this: Lypsinka on the Joan Rivers Show 20 years ago!

Barbara dug through the archives and found a photo of her and Pete with the late Joan Rivers from 2008. Joan was at the studio to record an episode of Arthur (the beloved animated children’s series on PBS) in which she voiced Francine’s grandmother.

Joan Pete & Barb

The documentary about her was also being filmed, and Robin Hessman, director of the film, “My Peristroika,” knew the director of Joan’s documentary. She was very gracious and kind, and talked to Robin, Peter and Barbara about what they were working on. Barbara thought she was really sweet and had a very strong work ethic, while Pete mentioned that when she was working she was extremely focused and seemed to be very driven to work.

Pardon the late post, but the world lost many great icons this year: Joan Rivers, Robin Williams, Maya Angelou, and Philip Seymour Hoffman are only a few.
