Appeared frequently on variety shows in the early 70s as a magician performing absurd tricks (such as making his fingers "jump" from one hand to another) while constantly humming his inane theme song.
Broke his neck in six places falling from a ladder while working on a house. After extensive rehabilitation, he can walk a little with difficulty, but generally uses a wheelchair.
Through his one man stage act, titled "The Accidental Comedy", he has been able to raise more than $175,000 for Project Support for Spinal Cord Injury to help buy crutches, wheelchairs and supplies for others with spinal injuries.
Known to fans as Mauser from the Police Academy Series.
