    Born in Hartford, Connecticut
    Birth name was Louis Neistat
    Best known for being interviewed as a 'Man on the Street' on 'The Steve Allen Show'
    Catchphrase was 'Heigh-ho, Steverino'
    Had recurring roles as Delbert Gray on 'The Ann Sothern Show' (1960-61), Sonny Drysdale on 'The Beverly Hillbillies' (1962) and Jeff Greene's Dad on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (2000-02)

    Recorded the album 'Heigh-Ho, Madison Avenue' (1960)
    He tried to shave nine years off his age, claiming 1922 as his year of birth.
    He preferred being called an actor instead of a comedian, despite several comedy albums and a career in stand-up comedy.
    He was a perpetual second banana, never the lead.
    He was dropped from 'The Beverly Hillbillies' after one season because the network found his character 'too sissified.'
    He served in the Army during WWII, entertaining troops. ('I had to make the entertainment good enough to keep the young soldiers from going into town.')
    His improvised answers often left Steve Allen doubled over with laughter.
    He mastered 15 accents.
    He continued performing at nightclubs into his 90s.
