Life Story of Louie Anderson

Iconic comedian Louie Anderson, the three-time Emmy®-Award winner, is one of the country's most recognized and adored comics; named by Comedy Central as "One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time." His career has spanned more than 30 years. He is a best selling author, star of his own stand up specials and sitcoms, and he continues to tour the country performing to standing room only crowds worldwide.

In 2016, Louie was cast to co-star along with Zach Galifianakis and Martha Kelly in the hit FX series, "Baskets." Anderson's extraordinary new role is Christine Baskets, the matriarch of the Baskets clan. The character is based on both his mother and his five sisters, who were a major presence in his life.

"I'm not as nice in the character as my mom was as a person. It really is an extension of my mom, Anderson says, adding that he always aims to make his performance "as real as possible" without "affecting or cartooning it up. It felt like it was divine intervention when I got the call to be on the show, that somehow my mom, from the great beyond, was finally getting herself into show business where she truly belonged in the first place."

Shortly 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.

When 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.

Shot 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.

In 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.

In 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.
