The Hamburger Pimp - with Relish!
I love the Hamburger Pimp. Marky wanted me to do a post on The Lady Reed, aka Queen Bee, and I agree that's a great topic because the Lady R never got the acclaim she deserved. Check out her work on Rudy Ray Moore's "Sensuous Black Man" LP or her tour de force as Queen Bee aka "Queenie" in "Dolemite."
"I put your girls thru karate school - they're good, too."
However, the lack of Queen Bee clips on youtube brought me instead to the Hamburger Pimp, one of the best Dolemite characters ever. I showed this to my nephew when he was younger and we still joke about it.
