Alan Sues, R. I. P.

Alan Sues - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Alan Sues (March 7, 1926 – December 1, 2011) was an American comic actor best known for his performances as part of the ensemble on the 1968–1973 television program Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. Sues' on-screen persona was campy, outrageous and contained verbal slapstick; typical of his humor was a skit that found him following a pair of whiskey-drinking cowboys to a Wild West bar and requesting a frozen daiquiri.[1] Sues' recurring characters on the program included Big Al the Sportscaster and Uncle Al the Kiddie's Pal.[1] He also parodied castmate JoAnne Worley when she left the show, appearing in drag.

Don't forget that classic Twilight Zone episode where his rich, dying grandfather makes him and the rest of his family put on Mardi Gras masks.

R.I.P., Uncle Al.
