The Resume

    (June 6, 1950-January 22, 2023)
    President of the Rocky Horror Picture Show Fan Club (1977- )
    Cameos in the sequel ‘Shock Treatment’ (1981) and the TV remake of ‘Rocky Horror’ (2016)
    Wrote ‘Creatures of the Night: The Rocky Horror Experience’ (1990)
    Co-wrote ‘The Official Rocky Horror Picture Show Audience Par-tici-pation Guide’ (1991)

Why he might be annoying:

    He did not see Rocky Horror until it had already been a midnight movie staple for nine months at Greenwich Village’s Waverly Theatre.
    His first ever adlib (responding to Frank N. Furter’s query ‘Whatever happened to Fay Wray?’ with ‘She went ape-shit’) prompted a debate among the Waverly regulars about whether it was too offensive to repeat.
    He wrote a Rocky Horror trivia game that gives incorrect answers for some of the questions.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is also a competitive Scrabble player.
    He first assumed a leadership role in the Rocky Horror community when the Waverly management had him ask the regulars to stop lighting candles during ‘Over at the Frankenstein Place’ since the fire department was threatening to shut down the theater over the fire hazard.
    His status as a spokesperson for the Rocky Horror fanbase was acknowledged by 20th Century Fox.
    He has a cameo in ‘Fame’ (1980), telling a Rocky Horror virgin complaining that he can’t see the show, ‘We are the show! If you don’t like it, go to the one in Staten Island.’
    He was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for seeing the same movie in theaters the most times.
