Alan Sues, the actor best known as a flamboyantly campy regular on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" in the late 1960s and early '70s, has died. He was 85.
Sues died Thursday night while watching television at his home in West Hollywood, said Michael Gregg Michaud, a longtime friend.
"He had been in failing health the last couple of years, but it was nothing you could put your finger on; just old age," said Michaud. "Mentally, he was funny and 'on' as usual. He was a delightfully funny man, with a wonderful career that spanned six decades."

When I was stationed at Camp Pendleton in 1969 , one of the squadbay's sergeants had a television and I remember all of these big ,tough marines jammed into the nco's cubical laughing so hard that tears flowed while watching Laugh-in every week.
I remember the same thing happening in the TV room @ Kent State.
