Comedian. After graduating from Compton High School in Los Angeles, California in 1962, he studied drama at Los Angeles City College. He began his comedy career as a stand-up comedian at pioneering comedian Red Foxx's club in Los Angeles. At the suggestion of Red Foxx, he teamed up with another comedian who was working at the club; this lead to a role as a regular on the "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour" from 1971 to 1974. He later appeared in a number of motion pictures and on television. His movie credits as a character actor include "Fletch", "Under the Rainbow" and "The Buddy Holly Story". His television credits include "The Midnight Special", "Sanford and Son", "Starsky and Hutch", "What's Happening", "Hill Street Blues" and "Simon and Simon". He also appeared as a regular panelist on "The Gong Show" and "The Match Game".  (bio by: Babe)
