A Short Biography. . .

Happy 2022!
I am Celebrating 43 years in the entertainment industry this year. I have been blessed to excel in many areas of show business.
I left Conway, South Carolina in 1979, to pursue a career as an actor in NY. I am a proud member of Actors Equity.
Eventually, my gift of gab and quick wit, along with my love of Singing led me to a variety of stages from Atlantic City to Las Vegas.
My original blog to chronicle the history of ( Hello Dolly) morphed into a talk/variety series called , "Richard Skipper Celebrates."
This series which ran for 2 and 1/2 years is now syndicated on most popular podcast platforms and YouTube.
