Biography

An exuberant - some might say oppressively so - comic and personality, Marty Ingels survived a largely disastrous stint on television, which culminated in the failed sitcom "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster" (ABC, 1962-63) before he shifted gears in the 1970s to become a high-priced broker for celebrity clients working in television commercials. He also gained fame and some degree of respect as the husband of actress Shirley Jones, though their improbable marriage was fraught with its ups and downs. In the 1990s and 2000s, Ingels was in the news as the litigant in scores of lawsuits against a vast array of forces, from his own clients, to radio host Tom Leykis and various lawyers, television stations and random individuals. This aspect of his personality did much to undermine the goodwill he had generated for several decades as an agent, and reduced his legacy from minor celebrity-turned-businessman to hapless crackpot, a fate he surely did not intend for himself. Marty Ingels died following a massive stroke on October 21, 2015 at the age of 79.
