His trademarks include his excited manner, his New York Bronx accent, his wit, and irreverent ad-libs. He is most widely known for Live! with Regis and Kelly (which rose to fame as Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee),Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,Million Dollar Password, and for hosting the first season of America's Got Talent.
