Comedian Chuck McCann passes away at 83
Los Angeles: American comedian Chuck McCann and children's much-loved Television host lost his life due to cardiac arrest. He was 83.
McCann did a lot of voice-over work, was a fine Oliver Hardy impersonator and appeared in the 1968 The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter.
Described as an entertainment jack-of-all-trades, McCann worked as a children's show host, puppeteer, nightclub comic, movie actor, voice-over performer and celebrity impersonator.
He was a founding member, along with actor Orson Bean, of the Sons of the Desert, the international fan club dedicated to celebrating Laurel and Hardy.
"I did everything," McCann told TVParty.com in a 2007 interview.
"I never closed doors. If you look at my career, if I had one, I never think of it as a career, I just look at it as things I love to do. I have just as much fun doing a 30-second commercial as I do making a movie," he had said.
