TORONTO — Humorist Joe Flaherty, an establishing individual from the cherished Canadian sketch series "SCTV," has kicked the bucket. He was 82.

His little girl Gudrun said Tuesday that Flaherty passed on Monday following a concise disease.

Flaherty, who was brought into the world in Pittsburgh, burned through seven years at The Second City in Chicago prior to moving north of the boundary to assist with laying out the theater's Toronto station.

He proceeded to star close by John Candy and Catherine O'Hara in "SCTV,″ about a made up Channel known as Second City TV that was stacked with jokesters before and behind the cameras. Flaherty's characters included network supervisor Fellow Caballero and the vampiric television have Count Floyd.

He won Emmys in 1982 and 1983 for his composition on "SCTV" and kept on working in television and film for quite a long time.

He was acquainted with later ages through vital turns as a sneering harasser in the 1996 film "Blissful Gilmore" and as a dated father in the television parody "Oddities and Nerds," which ran from 1999 to 2000.

"Goodness man. Loved Joe growing up," jokester Adam Sandler said on X. "Continuously had me and my sibling giggling. Count Floyd, Fellow Caballero. Any move he made."

"He squashed as boundary monitor in Stripes. Couldn't be more enjoyable to have him annoy me on the fairway. The most delightful person you could be aware. Virtuoso of a jokester. Furthermore, a genuine darling. Amazing combo. Much love to his children and on account of Joe for all the significance he gave all of us."
