Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss dresses as old man for Halloween in heartbreaking ‘Ellen’ show clip


Ellen DeGeneres and her DJ, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, dressed as older versions of themselves last yr for the ultimate Halloween celebration on DeGeneres’ daytime show.

Boss donned a family reunion shirt, a sweatsuit, a leather newsboy cap, a white beard and mustache and a beer belly. He used a cane stabilized by tennis balls to make his technique to the DJ stand as Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” blasted from the speakers.

He “dropped it” by plopping right into a chair on the booth.

“I’m future ‘tWitch.’ That is ‘tWitch’ of 2061, which suggests I’m 79 years old,” Boss said to applause within the six-minute clip, which has greater than 50,000 views on YouTube.

“They call me ‘Pop Pop’ because, look, at any time when I come back I pop it for you.”

Sadly, there might be no “future tWitch” as Boss died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the pinnacle earlier this week on the age of 40.

He checked into the Oak Tree Inn, an Encino hotel lower than a mile from his California home, on Monday. He was found the subsequent day by a maid after he missed his checkout.

DeGeneres — who wore a pink sweatsuit and matching visor and rode in a motorized scooter for last yr’s costume — is among the many celebrities who remembered the dashing dancer, revealing Boss “brought a lot joy to my life.”

DeGeneres hired him as her show’s DJ in 2014. He became an executive producer in 2020 and stayed on until the finale aired last spring. 

DeGeneres shared a video from that touching finale through which she paid loving tribute to Boss.

“Over a decade ago, I met someone who modified my life, and our show,” she said, bringing Boss to tears. “You mostly make me smile and laugh and we put somewhat something together simply to say how much all of us love you here.”

Boss’ wife, Allison Holker, confirmed her husband’s passing Wednesday in a heartfelt statement obtained by The Post.

“It’s with the heaviest of hearts that I actually have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker said. “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light-weight was every part to him. He was the backbone of our family, the perfect husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”

He’s survived by Holker, 34, and their three children: Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.

On Thursday, a source near Boss shot down an unsubstantiated rumor pushed by Boss’ “Stomp the Yard: Homecoming” co-star Columbus Short that he can have committed suicide because he “invested in something that took his whole life savings.”
