    Marty Allen, the baby-faced, bug-eyed comedian with wild black hair who was a staple of TV variety shows, game shows and talk shows for decades, died Monday night. He was 95.

    Allen died in Las Vegas of complications from pneumonia with his wife and performing partner of the last three decades, Karon Kate Blackwell, by his side, Allen’s spokeswoman, Candi Cazau, told the Associated press.

    Allen, known for his greeting and catchphrase “hello dere,” was a living link late in life to a generation of long-dead superstars with whom he shared a stage, including Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne and Elvis Presley.

    3. Goodbye, Marty, and thanks for all the laughs.

    I bet he’s shaking things up in the afterlife, whatever and wherever that might be.

    5. I don't remember him, but I've never been a comedy, talk or game show fan.

    95 is a ripe old age. R.I.P. Mr. Allen.
