A comedian whose career included regular spots on a number of TV shows has died at 62, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Vic Dunlop, who appeared on the ABC game show "Make Me Laugh" and was a regular on the 1981-82 sitcom "Harper Valley P.T.A.," died Saturday from complications associated with diabetes, according to the story.

Dunlop appeared on a new version of "Make Me Laugh" on ABC, in which contestants watched three stand-up comics perform their acts separately and earned a dollar for every second they kept a straight face, the story says. In one bit, Dunlop dressed up as a baked potato, the article adds.

Other comedians featured on the show included Richard Belzer and Gallagher.

Dunlop started his comedy career as a member of the L.A. improv group Natural Gas in the early 1970s.
