Comedian and actor Michael Ian Black has been a familiar face for pop culture aficionados for years, lending his crackling commentary to seemingly any topic (ever heard of a pair of shows called I Love the '80s and I Love the '90s?). But in his new book, Navel Gazing: True Tales of Bodies, Mostly Mine (But Also My Mom's Which I Know Sounds Weird), out Tuesday, Black turns his critical eye inward to examine his own life.
Clerow Wilson, Jr. (December 8, 1933 – November 25, 1998), known professionally as Flip Wilson, was an American comedian and actor. In the early 1970s, Wilson hosted his own weekly variety series, The Flip Wilson Show. The series earned Wilson a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards. In January 1972, Time magazine featured Wilson's image on their cover and named him "TV's first black superstar".
