CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Dan Baker on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on May 20th, 2021, reviewing the new film “Tiny Tim: King for a Day,” which is available through Video-On-Demand beginning May 21st.

Herbert “Tiny Tim” Khaury was a determined singer and performer, despite having hundreds of doors slammed into his face in 1950s and ‘60s New York City. After a breakthrough in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the mid 1960s, his album “God Bless Tiny Tim” improbably rose on the music charts. An appearance on TV’s “Laugh-In” and a live marriage on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” followed, but as his star ascended, there was an inevitable decline to follow.

    CHICAGO – The funny meter of Netflix went off the scale last week, as the animated series “Chicago Party Aunt” made its debut on September 17th. What began as a Twitter account by comic actor Chris Witaske (who also provides his voice talent) has morphed into the cartoon adventures of Aunt Diane Dumbowski, her nephew Daniel, and an array of familiar Chicago-isms and characters.
