Personal Quote:

The whole world has changed. Shows now are terribly mean-spirited. You're rooting for people to be eliminated, rooting for judges to find new ways of being nasty. I wouldn't want to see electrocutions on TV. But I've no doubt some day we will. See more »

Trivia:

On The Dating Game (1965) some of the music that he composed were the music that was actually his, the rest were hits, all over. Barris also used the mix of the hits and little things that he composed. His first wife, Lyn Levy, wrote all the music cues of the show, who also used a huge record library to put in the various music cues. See more »

Trademark:

His accentuated hand-clapping between sentences. See more »
