Actor/Comedian. He dropped out of school at age 15 and aspired to be a trumpet player. His comedy career began as part of a stage act with two friends called "Morris, Marty & Mitch." In the 1950s and 1960s he prospered as a writer primarily on British radio and television. In 1961 he was diagnosed with severe hyperthyrodism which affected his eyes giving him what was to become his trademark appearance. His American television debut came in the late 1960's as sketch characters on the Dean Martin Show and Dean Martin Presents The Gold Diggers. His popularity soared and in 1970 he starred in his own television show called The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine. His most famous role came in 1974 when Mel Brooks cast him as Igor the Hunchback in "Young Frankenstein." In 1975 he teamed with Gene Wilder in the film "The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother" and in 1976 starred in another Mel Brooks film, "Silent Movie," a role which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. He then starred in and directed the films "The Last Remake of Beau Geste" and "In God We Tru$t." In 1982 he was in Mexico filming the movie "Yellowbeard" when he suffered a massive heart attack. He died in a Mexico City hospital. (bio by: Decal)
