Jack Carter, the brash stand-up comic who was considered one of America's "rising young comedians" during television's pioneer days in the late 1940s and became a familiar face on TV variety shows in the '50s and '60s, has died. He was 93.
Carter, whose stand-up comedy career continued well into his 80s, died Sunday at his Beverly Hills home of respiratory failure, said Jeff Sanderson, a family spokesman.
In show business circles, the gruff-voiced Carter was known as a comedian's comedian. He had an aggressive, keep-them-laughing stage persona that seemed not to diminish with age.
