An Explosive Start

Jerry was born in a Tube Station during an air raid on London.

Political Animal

Before he became what Barbara Walters described as 'one of the world's 10 most fascinating people', Jerry was Mayor of Cincinnati for two terms and a political activist for Bobby Kennedy.  After Kennedy's assassination Springer went on to successfully lobby for the legal lowering of the voting age from 21 to 18 in Ohio.

Courting Controversy

In 2003, two british writers created 'Jerry Springer
The Opera' based on the eponymous show.  When the show was broadcast on the BBC there was instant uproar among the evangelical group Christian voice over the show's supposedly blasphemous content.  They attempted to bring a prosecution against the director-general of the BBC, but the judge refused to issue a summons.  Two High Court Judges ruled that the show was not blasphemous.  However, the broadcast did illicit 55,000 complaints.

Razzle Dazzle 'Em

As well as releasing a CD of country songs, Jerry has performed as Billy Flynn in the stage musical Chicago in both London's West End and on Broadway.
