Man from Mars à la Rick Overton
Who is Rick Overton:
Rick is a double Leo and has been show-folk for over 45 years. He is an Emmy Award Winner, Actor, Comedian, activist. And you may have just seen him on DRUNK HISTORY. Honestly, Rick was a little modest in his bio so I am going to add a little bit more. Rick made his first onscreen appearance in the 1982 film Young Doctors in Love, followed by a small role in Airplane II: The Sequel later that year. In 1987, he wrote an episode of The New Adventures of Beans Baxter while also appearing in various films and television shows including Willow, Amazing Stories and Million Dollar Mystery. Rick had one of the first HBO comedy specials and was Robin Williams improv partner. Rick is also very loved and respected by us show folk.
