It is being reported on CNN.com that Calvert DeForest, the actor that played Larry "Bud" Melman on David Letterman’s show for years, passed away on Monday. He was a comic genius that displayed the craft well with the way he played up on his poor timing and uncomfortable nature in front of the camera. I would always watch Letterman just see if Larry "Bud" was going to make an appearance. As a former comedian, it takes a lot to really make me laugh. Calvert was one of those rare guys that kept me in stitches! Bye, bye Larry "Bud"…you will be missed.
