Kevin Meaney Dead

Veteran comedian Kevin Meaney was found dead at his home in Forestburgh, N.Y. on Friday, his agent told CNN. He was 60.

A cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Meaney was scheduled to perform his stand-up act this Saturday night in East Providence, R.I.

In addition to his visits to various late-night talk shows over his career, Meaney’s TV credits included the original small-screen adaptation of John Candy’s Uncle Buck movie, which debuted on CBS in 1990 and ran for one season. Additionally, he guest-starred on 30 Rock and 2 Broke Girls, appeared in several HBO specials and lent his voice to animated fare such as Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, Garfield and Friends and Mad Jack the Pirate.

On Twitter, he was promptly remembered by fellow stand-up vets as well as 2BG star Kat Dennings:
