Louie Anderson, longtime comic and game show host who won an Emmy for his supporting role as Christine Baskets in the FX series “Baskets,” has died at age 68.

He passed in Las Vegas following after undergoing treatment for diffuse large B cell lymphoma. His publicist confirmed his death to Deadline Friday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Perhaps best known for his brilliant, subversive turn in the 1988 comedy “Coming to America,” he scored the role as the sole white person in the groundbreaking comedy. Anderson chalked it up to his nice-guy Midwestern roots.


Deadline reported that Anderson passed away Friday morning, where he had entered a Las Vegas hospital earlier this week for the cancer treatment.

The comedian is survived by his two sisters, Lisa and Shanna Anderson.

Prior to Anderson’s death, Pauly Shore had tweeted on Thursday, “Attention comedians and @TheComedyStore alumni’s I say this with a heavy heart just left the hospital in Las Vegas where Louie Anderson his sisters and close friend were kind enough to let me say my goodbyes he’s still with us but keep him in your prayers.”

  1. I was 30 years old the first time I ever watched Louie perform. I had never laughed so hard in my life and it was good clean comedy! RIP Louie.
