A Brooklyn, N.Y., native, Callas served in the U.S. Army in Germany during World War II before becoming a comedian. He's best known for his work with Mel Brooks, appearing in Silent Movie, High Anxiety, History of the World, Part 1 and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

Callas is survived by his two sons, Mark and Larry Callas.

He was 83. He died because he was old. That's how these things work.

Charlie Callas was funny but I had a hard time watching him. He had the ticks down to the level they were disturbing. The comedians of today could have learned lessons from his generation. They could be funny without being vulgar, that's not something that the current groups even get close to.
