Comedy actor Alan Sues has passed away at the age of 85.
The entertainer died on Thursday night at his home in Los Angeles, according to a statement posted on his website.

Sues shot to fame as part of TV show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In which aired from 1968 to 1972, and he became well known for playing eccentric characters.

His longtime friend Michael Gregg Michaud says, “He had been in failing health the last couple of years, but it was nothing you could put your finger on; just old age. Mentally, he was funny and ‘on’ as usual. He was a delightfully funny man, with a wonderful career that spanned six decades.”
