In addition, Addotta was featured on the Dr. Demento radio show for his songs Wet Dream and Life in the Slaw Lane.
One of Addotta’s last Facebook posts this month showed his sometimes bizarre sense of humor.
Addotta wrote, “An elderly couple is walking along when a pigeon flys over and drops one right on the old lady’s head. She says oh my god, get me some toilet paper. He says, what the hell for, he’s a half mile away by now!”
He captured his career in the autobiography, Confessions of a Comedian.
