The one and only Wildman, Ontario legend

A fixture in Ontario the crazed Sheik.

Always labelled ahead of his time Chris Colt was if nothing an attraction for the Wildman in Ontario.

Program cover and contents from a Wildman show.


  1. Great stuff here Rob! nice clip from Owen Sound. I spent most of my summers just south of there and remember many posters in the area for Dave's shows. IIRC he ran Owen Sound regularily in the 70's. It would be great ot get to a library up there and go through the microfilm to research old cards from the area. I can't remember if he ran Shelburne or Markdale or Dundalk etc. but I'm sure he ran Orangeville. Anyone else remember?

  2. My Grandma was librarian in OS for 30 + years been through the microfilm there quite often and my Uncle worked for the paper so I got some of the original photo's which were awesome to have.
    I know he ran Port Elgin and Wiarton and I'm sure he was in some of the other small towns between TO and OS. I still get up in the summer and if I get time I'll drop by th elibrary see what I can find.
