Paul Edward Lynde (June 13 1926 – January 10 1982) was an American comedian and actor. A noted character actor with a distinctively campy and snarky persona that often poked fun at his barely in the closet homosexuality Lynde was well known for his roles as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched and Harry MacAfee the befuddled father in Bye Bye Birdie – both the stage musical and the film-version.
