Is Regis Philbin Jewish?

Regis Philbin is not a Jew. Philbin was raised Roman Catholic.

Regis Philbin was born in New York City to an Irish father and an Arbëreshë  mother. His parents Francis "Frank" Philbin, a U.S. Marine who served in the Pacific and Filomena "Florence" Boscia raised Philbin in The Bronx, New York.


  1. Why do so many people impersonating him portray him as Jewish?

  2. He's got that exact new yorker Jewish accent and may use some of the yiddish words like "oy oy oy" or "aye vey". And everyone loves to imitate Jewish New Yorker accent.

  3. Yes, he is on his father's side.
