Larry Storch


Best remembered from his stint as Corporal Agarn on televisionís F-Troop, Larry Storch is both a comedy actor and a comedian. His ability to act in any accent, from believable to cartoon exaggerated, to sing, dance and clown and to do stand-up comedy opened up all fields of show business to him. He began as a teenager in vaudeville, moved into network radio, performed in Navy shows while serving in the Second World War, played posh night spots on his return to civilian life, was in on the ground floor of network television, has starred or been a featured regular in a half dozen TV series, performed on most TV variety shows, acted on TV dramas and dozens of theatrical movies and appeared on Broadway. Since the death of Mel Blanc, Larry Storch may hold the record for the number of cartoon voice-overs.
