TV’s Cheers Cliff the mailman speaking at Clarkson Reunion Weekend


POTSDAM - Actor and entrepreneur John Ratzenberger will speak at Clarkson University as part of its Alumni Reunion Weekend, July 11 to 14.

The public is invited to hear Ratzenberger at 1:30 p.m. July 13 in the Student Center Forum.

An accomplished entrepreneur and philanthropist, Ratzenberger is an outspoken advocate for American-made products and the companies that keep Americans working.

A master improvisational actor, Ratzenberger gained international fame as the character “Cliff” in the NBC show Cheers and has lent his voice to numerous Disney/Pixar animated films, including the Toy Story franchise, Wall-E, A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Up.

During more than three decades of moviemaking and theater, Ratzenberger has enjoyed success as a screenwriter, director, producer and multi Emmy-nominated actor. He also produced and hosted the Travel Channel show “Made in America.”
