For Kenny Tarr, hoaxing wasn't a way to make quick a buck, it was his art. And the world of daytime television was his canvas. A gypsy, an adulterous trucker, a plumber trapped in a mortuary - Tarr pretended to be all these characters and more. He successfully tricked his way onto a significant number of different talk shows. But did his quest for fame ultimately backfire?
