0 to 10.... Born a "war baby" in 1941, WIGGINS learned to talk funny and began his career performing a "Singing & Dancing Cowboy Act" on the bar tops in his Chicago neighborhood saloons, thereby
earning "beer money" for his Grandpa, who became WIGGINS very
first agent in Show Business.

Reformatory where WIGGINS practiced defending himself from
hecklers,,, Very Big Hecklers.

Suburbanite' raising five kids and many plants, plus studying acting at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, eventually landing a role in the movie, Cooley High, playing a "White Trick."
