Super Pimp on the news?!


It all started with an email from Jason Handman, on air personality for Channel 19 News. He informed me the news director for the station saw the Harlem Shake video done by the Barley House, and wanted to do a feature story about me. How cool is that?!!! First time for me being on the news for something legal. :)

This past Saturday night, about 8:15pm, I looked out my front window and saw the Channel 19 news truck pull up in front of my house. Even though I knew why they were there for, a nervous anticipation took hold. It’s not everyday you have people come to your house to film you up close, and personal. However, Jason’s and John Baligush’s (videographer) professionalism, quickly put me at ease.

While at the house they filmed me in regular (civilian) clothes doing regular things. There are many people who have never seen me in anything other than a suit. They filmed everything from my suits and shoes in the closet, to my daughter, to my dog. It was kind of like a poor mans MTV cribs. HA! After I was filmed getting ready, they followed me to downtown Cleveland to continue the story.

Once downtown, everything turned chaotic. It was very strange, yet exciting, to do all the things I usually do with a camera recording. Everyone in the clubs really enjoyed, and got into the excitement. I couldn’t help but feel like a celebrity.

The feature story will actually air during “sweeps week” in May. Watch for exact date on my website,, Facebook, and Twitter @RealSuperPimp. Thanks to all who participated in the rough draft. Join me in watching the final product soon…should be interesting…….Till next time………

Cleveland’s ‘SuperPimp’ Has His Own Site

Posted by Vince Grzegorek in the Cleveland Scene Magazine

Dear lord. You know “SuperPimp.” You’ve seen the catcher’s-mitt tan, the flamboyant suits, and the ridiculous hair all over town.

Anyway, he has his own website now — (How that domain was still available is beyond us. How did no enterprising actual pimp snap that up? Or, at least, Too Short?)

The virtual home of SuperPimp is just what you would expect, which is to say Pimptacular — from the Perez Hiton-esque banner up top to the intro video, which you can see below, to his Pimpology 101 blog where he opines on whatever’s on SuperPimp’s mind. For instance, “Why I Wear Suits.” (“When I was growing up, men and boys always wore suits for occasions such as weddings, going to church, parties, funerals etc. It was a matter of respect. Respect for yourself, your family and others. My daughter gets upset with me whenever I go to one of her school functions because I always wear a suit (not pink..Ha!). It is second nature for me to “dress for respect”. This is the way I was brought up. As we all know, when we leave our parent’s influence, we have the tendency to not follow some of the things they insisted upon. This did not happen to me because of an adventure that “superpimped” me forever.”

You get the point. Browse around and be pimpified.
