[ # ] The Unknown Comic comes out of retirement to retire
December 23rd, 2021 under 70s

Back when the original Gong Show was on the air in the ’70s and ’80s, the Unknown Comic was one of its biggest stars. Everyone wanted to know who was the mystery man under that paper bag.

That was then. Where is he now? He announced on Twitter, “I Retired 15 years ago & realized nobody knew I retired so gonna come out of retirement for a few gigs & try to retire again.”

Now, he is up there with other legendary acts from that era like Cher, Barbra Streisand, and Mötley Crüe, as in saying they retired from live shows but resumed touring after some time.

If you want to see him live, then you can catch him at JR’s Comedy Club in Simi Valley on February 25th, JR’s Comedy in Valencia on the next night, Marine Comedy Winery in Novato on April 2nd, and Ventura Comedy Club sometime in April.

Maybe, just like paper bags, his career could have a resurgence, and he won’t retire again.
