In addition to his media appearances, Bruce also has dabbled in the
theater.

a calculated bursting onto the
scene," he admits. "As spon-
taneous as I sounded, I knew
everything I was saying."
Recognized for his TV per-
sona of cattiness and caustic
humor, Bruce hears com-
ments from many people,
such as, "Gee, you're a lot
nicer than I thought you were
going to be." He insists his
behavior is purposeful — he
does it to wake up the au-
dience. "I only pick on the
celebrities . . . never a
civilian."
Bruce's tactics initially
resulted in the audience
either loving him or hating
him, but they always watch-
ed him. Now, having mellow-
ed out a bit, he said he thinks
people watch him because
they can count on having a
good time.
Bruce has appeared
regularly on many other na-
tional and local television
shows, such as: "Sally Jessy
Raphael Show," "Hour
Magazine with Gary Collins,"
"Murphy in the Morning,"
"A.M. Indiana," "Seattle To-
day" and "People are Talking
(Boston). He insists on doing
a show only if he can have the
entire hour. His method
seems to work. His ap-
pearances on Kelly and Co.
always result in a "full
house."
His media experiences in-
clude hosting the Mark Scott,
J.P. McCarthy and Warren
Pierce radio shows. When he
hosts a show, which allows
him to get away from make-
up for a while, he begs for
serious subjects. As a result,
he did the first AIDS segment
on Kelly and Co., and has in-
terviewed Rev. Jessie Jackson
and actor Richard Dreyfus.
Usually, Bruce's popularity
in a particular market is the
result of frequent television
appearances as well as in-
person seminars and client

appointments. His seminars
are done with the theme of a
"total make-over," and Bruce
calls upon local hairdressers,
plastic surgeons, diet
specialists, opticians, dental
cosmeticians and wardrobe
consultants to participate.
The national exposure has
resulted in the expansion of
Bruce's business to Detroit,
New Haven, Conn., Boston,
Minneapolis, Indianapolis,
Tampa, Seattle, St. Louis and
Los Angeles.
Bruce also has dabbled in
theater, performing locally in
Peter Pan and A Funny Thing
Happened on the Way to the
Forum. Proceeds from Bruce's
theater performances are
always given to charities, and
recent beneficiaries include
the Cystic Fibrosis Founda-
tion of Michigan, the Juvenile
Diabetes Foundation, Big
Brothers, the Michigan
Humane Society, Young
Variety Club and the Na-
tional Association for the
Deaf.
Bruce appeared as the
celebrity corpse in Arsenic
and Old Lace at the Fisher
Theater and in cities across
the U.S.
Bruce admits to having a
love for theater, and would
readily appear on stage "for
the rest of my life" if the op-
portunity presented itself.
The role he'd most like to por-
tray is that of Tevya in Fid-
dler on the Roof. Another of
Bruce's aspirations is to have
his own television show. "I
would have a female-oriented
show hosted by a man, which
has never been done before,"
he explains. "I've worked
with women for 26 years and
I think I understand them
and they understand me." He
also dreams about being on a
talk show as the sidekick to
Joan Rivers, a la Ed
McMahon.
