From the LA Times:

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."

RIP

I could nto place him on Laugh-In. However, I do remember his being in one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, "The Masks" where he played Wilfred Jr.
