Pat McMahon is an award-winning icon in the Valley. Pat has shaped
fun and happy unforgettable memories in the minds of thousands
of children while growing up watching and attending the longest
running kids show in television history, The Wallace and Ladmo
Show (between the years of 1954 -1989). McMahon joined the show
in 1960, creating and playing many controversial characters like the
most well-known spoiled kid Gerald, Boffo the clown, who hated
kids, Aunt Maude the hip granny, and even donned a wig and false
bushy eye brows to become a lead rock and roll guitarist named
Hub Kapp and the Wheels, recording several singles and appearing
on the Steve Allen & Joey Bishop Shows. The show’s humor was
often critical and topical, actually a pioneer to Saturday Night Live!
He is married to Duffy McMahon Ph.D. for over 30 years. Duffy has
her own presence in broadcasting where she talks about love, life and
sexuality, which she believes combine as a total human experience.

Note: The most interesting thing I learned about Pat McMahon is
that his parents were Vaudeville actors and he traveled with them
the first 12 years of his life. Now that explains everything!!! – BK
