C2E2: SVENGOOLIE [CHICAGO HORROR HOST]


If you’ve always dreamed of attending the biggest geek party in the Midwest, this is your weekend to get wild and cut loose with fellow Chicago nerds. The most epic memories and awesome lasting friendships are forged at Chicago’s home of pop culture… C2E2! [https://www.c2e2.com]
 
Svengoolie is a hosted horror movie show in the U.S.[3] The show's title is taken from the name of the character host. The show is a long-running local program in the Chicago area and in recent years expanded nationally, airing Saturday nights on MeTV. The show airs both low-budget and classic horror and science-fiction movies, with host "Svengoolie" – a telescoping of the words Svengali and ghoul – played by Rich Koz (pronounced "Koze"), who wears thick skull-like makeup around his eyes, a moustache and goatee, a fright wig, all black, and a black top hat, along with a tuxedo jacket over a bright red, open-collared, button-down shirt.

He is simply an icon and this year got his honors!
