Charlie Callas (born December 20, 1927) is an American comedian and actor most commonly known for his work with Mel Brooks, Jerry Lewis, and Dean Martin. Familiar from his many appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (from which he was eventually permanently banned by Carson himself, on air, for shoving Carson in a desperate attempt to generate laughs while bombing), he is known for his rubbery face, trademark nervous chattering and dark comedy. He appeared on The Andy Williams Show at various times as "Captain Weird", a parody of superheroes. Aside from comedy, his only best known dramatic role was that of a restaurant owner, Malcolm Argos, in the popular 1970s show, Switch, with Eddie Albert and Robert Wagner.
Callas was born in Brooklyn, New York and served in the United States Army during World War II. He began his career as a drummer playing in groups with Tommy Dorsey, Claude Thornhill, and Buddy Rich. He is currently married to Eve Velac and has two children.
