Rip Taylor, best known for his energetic game-show appearances and self-described as the "King of Confetti," has died at 84. Taylor died at his home in Beverly Hills. He was known for his over-the-top delivery and penchant for confetti showers. He frequently appeared on TV game shows, and was a judge on “The Gong Show.” That show’s host and creator, Chuck Barris, was so impressed by Taylor’s jokes as a judge that he offered him the position of host of “The $1.98 Beauty Show.” No cause of death was given.
