JOE E. ROSS 2011 fine art print / edition of 20 / $135.00 each
Mug-faced comedian Joe E. Ross was best known as Officer Gunther Toody in the 1960s TV sitcom Car 54, Where Are You? Before that, he was a legend in another—lower—world, and if not for his fateful casting as a maladroit member of the NYPD, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Ross had been a raunchy stand-up comic with an arcane act that sustained him for decades. After years of cow town obscurity, he was cast as the co-star of Nat Hiken's Car 54, which propelled him to superstardom. As befits an A-lister, Ross made the primetime rounds on The Ed Sullivan Show, Batman and Sing Along with Mitch. He flew first-class to marquee dates, especially police functions.
