American comedian and gag-writer who, along with Dan Rowan, created the wacky, zany and hilarious TV series "Laugh In," which ran from 1968-1972. Prior to his "Laugh In" comedic success, he worked for ten years as a bartender after coming to Los Angeles at the age of 19. As Martin worked, he was continually writing gags on the side. In 1950, he teamed up with Rowan to work the night club circuit and do guest spots on TV; 18 years later they hit the big time with "Laugh In."

Martin married Peggy Connelly in 1957 but they divorced a few years later. He and his first wife had one son. He married Dolly Read in 1971. Four years later they divorced but remarried in 1978.

As a teenager, Martin had lost a lung to tuberculosis. As he aged, he began to use an oxygen tank and died of respiratory failure on May 24, 2008 in Santa Monica, CA. He was 86.
