Remembering Gordie Tapp


Today we are remembering HEE HAW comedian, star, and musician Gordie Tapp. He was a regular on the comedy series and played Cousin Clem on the popular variety show. The Canadian funnyman appeared in 90 episodes of the long-running U.S. variety show.

Tapp was a native of Ontario and a member of the Order of Canada and an inductee of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. His career began in radio before moving into TV. Tapp passed away peacefully at Joseph Brant Hospital on Sunday, December 18, 2016 at the age of 94. Plans for a memorial have not yet been announced.

Today we thank him for the laughter and the memories.
