Louie Anderson Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Louie Perry Anderson (born March 24, 1953) is an American stand-up comedian, performer and television host. Anderson created the cartoon series “Life with Louie”, has written three novels, and was the first host of the next resurrection of the game show “Family Feud”, from 1999 to 2002. In late 1985, Anderson was cast as Lou Appleton alongside Bronson Pinchot to the pilot episode of Perfect Strangers for ABC (that was understood in this early period as The Greenhorn). When the show was picked up, Anderson was replaced by Mark Linn-Baker in the character of Appleton (whose first name was subsequently changed from Lou to Larry) as the producers did not believe the chemistry between Anderson and Pinchot was quite correct. The show ran for eight seasons on ABC. In 1987, Anderson appeared in a comedy special on Showtime. In 1988, Anderson played a part in John Landis’ movie Coming to America, which starred Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall. Exactly the same year found Anderson star in the camp comedy The Wrong Guys. In 1989, Anderson guest-starred on the very first episode of the MuppeTelevision section of The Jim Henson Hour. In 1995, Anderson created and made a Saturday morning animated series for Fox called Life with Louie. The show was based on Anderson’s youth with 10 sibs, a sweet-hearted mom as well as a excessive, war-crazed dad. It also detailed how he was picked on for his weight, and how he used humor to take care of the ribbing. In 1996, Anderson created and starred in The Louie Show for CBS. The show had Anderson playing a psychotherapist in Duluth, Minnesota. The show ran six episodes and was cancelled. In 1999, Anderson got the part of host of the newest model of Family Feud. Anderson appeared on a 2001 episode of The Weakest Link, winning $31,000. He guest starred on the Adult Swim cameo-filled show Tom Goes to the Mayor. Anderson played in the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas. In 2012, Anderson filmed a standup special entitled Louie Anderson: Large Baby Boomer. Louie Anderson appears in the 2013 ABC reality TV show Splash. Anderson was saved from drowning while filming by costar, football player Ndamukong Suh.

1I hope I'm not on E! True Hollywood Story (1996) 'til I'm dead.
2[in 2002, commenting on the revised Family Feud (2002) with Richard Karn succeeding him as the host] My prediction is that the show's off the air within a year.
3[on his immense weight] My first words were "Seconds, please". Most kids in kindergarten napped on a little rug. I had a braided 9 x 12.
1The Palace Station Hotel and Casino opened the Louie Anderson Theater where Louie performs 5 nights per week. [August 2010]
2In a 2002 episode of E! True Hollywood Story (1996), he stated that, after being chosen to host the 1999 revival of Family Feud (1999), he wanted the blessing of original host Richard Dawson. For that reason, the studio invited Dawson to make a guest appearance on the premiere episode and "pass the torch" to Anderson, but Dawson declined the invitation.
3The Real Ghostbusters (1986) character, "Dr. Ray Stantz", was based on his voice and appearance, Dan Aykroyd's appeal to the occult and technical know-how and John Belushi's comedic delivery.
4In 2000, Anderson was blackmailed by a man threatening to reveal to tabloids that Anderson allegedly approached him in a California casino requesting sexual acts in 1993. Fearing the story would threaten his starring roles in two family-oriented series, Louie initially paid a large amount of extortion money, but when the blackmailer's demands increased, Louie went to the police. The man was arrested and sentenced to 21 months in prison.
5Shot the pilot episode of the popular 80s/90s sitcom, Perfect Strangers (1986). Louie played the role of "Larry", alongside Bronson Pinchot, who played "Balki". Believing Bronson and Louie did not have the right chemistry, Louie's part was recast for the series, and played by Mark Linn-Baker.

7Had said that he did not even like his sitcom, The Louie Show (1996) due to all the changes CBS made to it.
8Enjoys butter.
9When ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1999) hit the air, Louie thought it would be a good idea to raise the Family Feud (1999) jackpot from $10,000 to $20,000. He got his way, and Family Feud's ratings went up as a result. The jackpot had been $10,000 for many years.
10Shortly after the attacks on New York City of 9-11-01, Louie came up with the idea that they do a special NYC police vs. firemen week for the show, the prize money going to the NYPD and FDNY Widow's Fund. Louie put his own personal money to start a pot at the beginning of the week -- $75,000.
