Event Description
Do You Remember Icky Twerp?
Presented by Paul Camfield
Son of "Slam Bang Theater" Host, Bill Camfield

Many folks who grew up in the Metroplex during the 1950s and 1960s fondly remember TCU grad Bill Camfield's iconic "Twerp" as the host of "Slam Bang Theater." He began his long television career in 1954, creating programs and characters such as "Nightmare" (Gorgon) and "Fun House" (Mr. Tapioca). Let Bill's son bring out the child in you this Saturday morning when he offers a behind-the-scenes view of his dad's career, sharing videos and memories from the family's archives. Paul Camfield is director of alumni relations for Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas, and served as executive director of the Gillespie County Historical Society in Fredericksburg, Texas, from 1995-2005.
