“I see you've met my faithful handyman”

Johann Gambolputty

Riff Raff Role(s): Riff Raff (a Handyman)
Email: riffraff@rockyhorrormemphis.com

Johann Gambolputty has been performing with Rocky shadowcasts since nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" at the time, because the kaiser had stolen our word "twenty." It was the original silent version, starring the divine Miss Sarah Bernhardt as Janet Weiss.
The first time I saw the Rocky Horror Picture Show, I was wearing an onion on my belt, which was the fashion at the time. Back in those days, movies cost a nickel, and nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. "Gimme five bees for a quarter," you’d say.

Now, where were we? Oh yes, the important thing is I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
