This is CRAZY...Another celebrity has died...two actually...Fred Travalena and Gale Storm ( Ms. Storm was a sitcom actress in early days of tv. She has 3 stars on the Hollywood walk of fame)
Fred Travelena was a frequent guest on the Carson show and we had him at TNN on various shows in the 90's...

The "Man of a Thousand Faces"; a comic impressionist who appeared numerous times on the Johnny Carson show in the 70's and early 80's, has died at his home in Encino, CA from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was 66.

Travalena's death comes the day after famed TV pitchman, Billy Mays, died at the age of 50. Preceding Mays, pop star icons, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died last Thursday. Tonight Show sidekick, Ed McMahon, succumbed to multiple health conditions early last week.

Travalena was a fixture on the late-night TV shows in the 70's and 80's. Later in life, he was also a regular guest on David Letterman's CBS show. His television credits began in the 1970s, as a regular performer on The ABC Comedy Hour and the Dean Martin Roasts. He also had several voice credits on cartoons as well as appearances on nationally-broadcast children's programs. Mr. Travelena also made many guest appearances on game shows and dramatic programs in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. In the mid-1980s he hosted the game show Anything For Money, a game where contestants attempted to guess how much money it would take an ordinary, unsuspecting person to participate in a silly stunt.

In 2005, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
