He Could've Been on "I've Got A Secret"

Remember the old tv show, I've Got A Secret?   Well, my stepfather, who was a contractor, and did a lot of work in people's houses, could have.... and I think should have.... been on that program.  But as far as I know, he never tried to get on.
And Dad had a doozy of a secret to share.  He once installed a shower door for someone who later starred in an iconic tv comedy which to this day is seen in reruns.
Here is a clip from my favorite episode of her show.
