Chuck Barris, the game show creator, producer, and host. He was best known for hosting The Gong Show, and creating The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game.
He was also a songwriter, who wrote the hit "Palisades Park" for Freddy Cannon and the author of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, his autobiography, which became a film directed by George Clooney.
