Born Clerow Wilson Jr. in Jersey City , New Jersey , he was one of ten children born to Cornelia Bullock and Clerow Wilson Sr. [4] [5] His father worked as a handyman but, because of the Great Depression , was often out of work. When Wilson was seven years old, his mother abandoned the family. His father was unable to care for the children alone and he placed many of them in foster homes. [4] After bouncing from foster homes to reform school, 16-year-old Wilson lied about his age and joined the United States Air Force . His outgoing personality and funny stories made him popular; he was even asked to tour military bases to cheer up other servicemen. Claiming that he was always "flipped out," Wilson's barracks mates gave him the nickname "Flip" which he used as his stage name. Discharged from the Air Force in 1954, Wilson started working as a bellhop in San Francisco 's Manor Plaza Hotel.

For Thursday-Sunday access, though, similar to last year, you’ll be heading up to the Pavilion Terrace (just outside the Sails Pavilion — where LEGO normally is) first thing in the morning. Attendees who arrive in Sails/Terrace in the morning will draw for a winning wristband – and each wristband will have a specific date and time to be redeemed on it.
