Really Awful Movies: Ep 6b – Mitch Markowitz of The Hilarious House of Frightenstein

Hilarious House of FrightensteinMitch Markowitz, the associate producer, head writer and one of the stars (Super Hippy, The Mosquito) of The Hilarious House of Frightenstein, talks about the humble origins of the seminal show in Hamilton, Ontario (think Pittsburgh, but less glamorous) and how it became an unlikely, long-running, multi-generational global hit.

Markowitz also discusses Vincent Price’s humility and kindness on the set, “writing scary” for Mr. Price, the inspiration for Austin Powers’ Mini Me character, how Markowitz enlisted the help of Ryerson University students to write the show, and penning sight gags for kids.
