Over-the-top comic actor Kenneth Mars made an unbearably funny screen debut as the ex-Nazi playwright responsible for the smash miss "Springtime for Hitler" in Mel Brooks' The Producers (1968). He was just as exaggerated, though not quite as amusing, as the one-armed police inspector in Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1974). Mars seemingly never held anything back, a trait that was prized by his admirers but caused discomfort among his detractors: reviewing the actor's performance in Peter Bogdanovich's What's Up Doc? (1972), Jay Cocks noted, "As a pompous middle-European intellectual, Kenneth Mars mugs and drools in a manner that Jerry Lewis might find excessive." Still, Mars nearly always delivered the laughs — especially on TV, where he was a regular on such programs as He and She and The Carol Burnett Show. Another of his screen appearances was as a remonstrative rabbi in Woody Allen's Radio Days (1986). Kenneth Mars has also provided voices for dozens of TV cartoon shows, wherein he has sometimes been subject to the indignity of having his name spelled Len Mars in the credits.
Recorded a comedy LP where he portrayed Henry Kissinger.
Along with his television and screen work, he has provided numerous voices for animated cartoon characters.
Off-the-wall, over-the-top actor/farceur whose broad schtick was smartly utilized by 70s directors Mel Brooks ("The Producers" and "Young Frankenstein") and Peter Bogdonovich ("What's Up, Doc?" and "Paper Moon") in their best comedies to date.
Familiar face of the past 40 years famous for his portrayal of a wide range of foreign characters. Best known for his roles as the laughable Nazi playwright Franz Liebkind in "The Producers" & the Police Inspector in "Young Frankenstein". Had regular role as Harry the fireman in the short-lived Dick Benjamin/Paula Prentiss sitcom "He & She".
