Louie Anderson, born Louis Perry Anderson, died today at the age of 68, from blood cancer. Louie was a stand-up comedian, actor, author and game show host.
Louie Anderson began his career as a stand-up comedian but soon began making appearances with small roles in movies. A comedy special led to more acting roles, his own animated television show (Life with Louie which ran for three seasons and won two Emmys) and a live action series (The Louie Show). Louie continued to act on television, in feature films, as well as doing stand-up comedy and game show hosting throughout his career. Along the way he found time to author four books!
Louie Anderson was such a likeable person that his appearances on talk shows, tv guest spots and movie roles were always welcome. Louie’s stand-up comedy put him in a league with the very best. He will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Louie Anderson’s family, friends and fans.
