Louie Anderson is one of the celebrities featured in ABC's reality diving competition series "Splash."

Emmy Award-winning comedian Louie Anderson is one of the most versatile and successful comedians working in Hollywood today. Sharing the ups and downs of his childhood experiences as one of 11 children in Minnesota, Anderson crafted comedy routines that rang true for his early club audiences, while reducing them to helpless fits of laughter. Johnny Carson invited Louie to make his national television debut on the "The Tonight Show" in 1984, and the rest is history. "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," "Comic Relief" and Showtime and HBO specials followed, making Louie a household name.

Anderson has guest-starred in numerous sitcoms and dramas on television, and has had memorable feature film roles in "Coming to America," opposite Eddie Murphy, and the classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." In 1995 Louie put his creative energies to work on the Saturday morning award-winning animated series, "Life with Louie." The long-running series, based on Louie's own childhood, won three Humanitas Prizes for writing on a children's animated series, making him the only three-time recipient of this award. It also earned a Genesis Award for its depiction of the humane treatment of animals and, most significantly, two Emmy Awards.

Anderson's best-selling books include "Dear Dad - Letters from an Adult Child," a collection of alternately touching and outrageous letters from Louie to his late father; and "Good-bye Jumbo ... Hello Cruel World," self-help for those who struggle with self-esteem issues, as only an award-winning comedian could write it. Louie recently finished writing his newest installment on family, "The F Word, How to Survive Your Family," and starred on his own standup special, "Big Baby Boomer," on CMT.
