Who had the right age?
Comedian Charlie Callas dies at 83
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Charlie Callas, a rubber-faced stand-up comedian and Mel Brooks regular who worked on television, in films and on stage for five decades, died Thursday in a Las Vegas hospice. He was 86.
Reading both the AP and your article concerning the death of Charlie Callas via Yahoo! News I noted that your story had him at 86 and AP said 83.
Only one of you can be right, unless that rascal Dr. Emmett Brown and his DeLorean showed up.
Since neither story gave a birth year one has to go digging around for the answer, something that is anathema when reading a major press organization’s story.
Unfortunately, our story from The Hollywood Reporter was wrong. We corrected it: GBU Editor
