Magician, actor, author, performer, entertainer, comedian, con man, ladies man, cardiologist -- these are all words one might use around Harry Anderson. Anderson achieved fame as a street magician, pushing sharp objects through his arm and making cards appear from his pants for the quarters of strangers. In the 1980s, he achieved fame with copious appearances on Saturday Night Live (under stage name Buck Henry), several magic specials, and a starring role in medieval sitcom Knight Court.
In the 1990s it was revealed that Anderson was a rabid Mel Tormé fan, the result of which was that his marriage to wife Elizabeth is no longer recognized in six states. The Andersons own a shop in New Orleans called Sideshow in which they sell pickled things in jars that you don't want to know what they are.
