Louie Anderson has died at the age of 68 due to complications from blood cancer.
The veteran comedian has been diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among adults. Earlier this week, Anderson was admitted to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment. According to his publicist, he passed away Friday morning.
The 68-year-old standup and actor was known for the animated series Life with Louie, for which he won a Daytime Emmy, the FX show Baskets, which earned him a Primetime Emmy, and most recently, a recurring role on Search Party.
