Private memorial for Piper at The World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood

A private memorial for Rowdy Roddy Piper will be held at The World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, California, on August 17.

This private memorial will include friends from all facets of Roddy Piper’s life and career including wrestling, acting, stand up comedy, live and broadcast TV, film and numerous business and charitable ventures. His closest friends and colleagues in Los Angeles will share stories and experiences about Roddy over the years.

“The Comedy Store is the adopted home of so many ‘comic orphans’ and Roddy became like a dad or big brother to all of us. He became family. I wanted to have a get together where we could get up and share our favorite stories about this incredible man who we all love and will miss greatly. This is a night for Roddy’s friends to celebrate what a great friend he was to all of us,” said organizer and Roddy Piper friend, comic Steve Simeone.

Piper’s daughter, actress Ariel Teal Toombs said that a lot of friends will appreciate something like this in the Los Angeles area since the funeral will be in Oregon and many won’t be able to make it. “It means a lot that Steve and the Comedy Store family are putting this together,” she said.
