Before "American Idol," before "Star Search," irrepressible cable-access host and man about town Skip E. Lowe will tell you, there was Skip E. Lowe's Undiscovered Talent Showcase.

A lot of Angelenos can speak with some authority on Hollywood luminaries, if not with actual knowledge then certainly with distinct opinions. Take Skip E. Lowe. Mention Judy Garland, Steve McQueen, or even Madonna, and Lowe will have a thing or three to say. But unlike most, the 71-year-old Lowe has had a ringside seat to Hollywood's happenings for more than six decades.

For a second time in a month, the criminal securities fraud trial of Charles H. Keating Jr. was disrupted Tuesday by a bondholder who accosted the former owner of Lincoln Savings & Loan during a break in proceedings. As Keating was returning to the courtroom, Skip E. Lowe, 62, a West Hollywood comedian, pulled a powdered blonde wig from an MGM movie travel bag and hit Keating twice near his right shoulder. "This is for America," Lowe said as he took a swipe.
