Back in the late sixties and early seventies, Alan Sues was best known as the very gay, bell-ringing sportscaster Big Al (video) and as the "medicine"-taking kids performer Uncle Al (video) on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. Like the show itself, he was kooky, over the top, and heaps of fun (although he lamented later that it ended up overshadowing his dramatic work). Sues died late last year and now his longtime house in West Hollywood has come up for sale--it was obviously cut from the same cloth as its owner, with lots of quirky details and bold decorating. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house was built in 1927 and has a front courtyard with fountain, beamed ceilings, a balcony off the master, a backyard Koi pond, a gazebo, and a single car garage. According to the listing, it's the first time it's hit the market in 40 years. Asking price is $1.175 million.
