Upon hearing the news there'd no longer be any meatloaf, he lost the will to live.
 
2022-01-21 11:38:51 AM  
He hadda go...

Two loaves of meat in one day. A sad day indeed.

This one hurts.

Rest in Peace, Louie.

He was absolutely phenomenal in this role. If I didn't know who he was, I would have assumed that they just found some lonely old Reaganite woman to play Zach's mom.

Truly was.  Loved him.

Honestly surprised he was still alive.

Any of you know any large white entertainer guys, maybe give them a call and check in today. Get them to put 911 on the speed dial..

I honestly believe that his parents sounded exactly like the voices he gave them.

Still love the Life with Louie episode where they decorated the old lady's house for Christmas as a surprise and then found out she was Jewish.

If we were going for Family Feud hosts... it coulda been Steve Harvey...

Being they were from Minnesota, the odds are pretty good.

I saw the post yesterday about him being in the hospital for cancer and thought 'Damn, well 2022 is going to take another one....'

Damnit. I should have kept my thoughts to myself, apparently.

I loved his crazy comedic/acting style; his books are funny as hell, too. Amazing job in 'Baskets'.

RIP Funny Mid-westerner man, you certainly made me laugh.

Celebrities tend to die in threes. Meatloaf, Louie Anderson, and whoever the next one will be. Entertainment trifecta in play?

A show called Baskets from FX starring Zach Galifianakis.

It's from Baskets. You can watch on Hulu, maybe other places too. It's a kind of awkward comedy vehicle for Zach Galifianakis. Louie was absolutely brilliant as Zach's mom.

Interesting thing is Richard Dawson died exactly 16 years to the date after Ray Combs committed suicide. Louie at least was not that date....June 2.

I should add that the show 'The Comedy Store' showcases a lot of our modern day comics, and their upbringing into the circut -- including Louie. Definitely a good watch if you're able.

Bigger worry is anybody who was on Rodney Dangerfield's 9th Annual Young Comedians Special in '85. Louie followed Bob Saget on that, too.

Somebody get eyes on Yakov Smirnov, Rita Rudner, and Maurice LaMarche, stat!

fiddlehead: Honestly surprised he was still alive.


Partially thanks to them both having Saturday morning cartoons around the same time, I've definitely confused him with John Candy.
 
2022-01-21 12:03:42 PM  
I tried to find a funny Family Feud clip with him.

Honestly, until now I'd forgotten how bad he was on that show.  No funny clips at all.  Good thing he did other things.
