Most recognized for: A gap-toothed tub from the Midwest, Mr. Anderson hit it big doing stand-up. From there, he washed lettuce in “Coming to America,” created the Emmy-winning cartoon series “Life with Louie,” hosted “Family Feud” for a few years, and threw on a dress & wig to play a twisted family matriarch on “Baskets.” But after a quiet bout with lymphoma, this fat lady finally sang.
