Comedy great Bob Hope's Emmy Award-winning joke writer, Morton Lachman, has died in Los Angeles.

The writer/comedian spent two decades laughing with Hope before becoming a TV sitcom producer and taking charge of beloved U.S. shows like All in the Family and Kate & Allie. He also wrote, directed and produced variety show The Red Skelton Hour and comedies Sanford and That’s My Mama.

Lachman co-wrote the family film Yours, Mine & Ours, and his jokes were told at 11 Oscar ceremonies and six Grammy Awards shows.

He won two Emmys - for All In The Family in 1971 and The Girl Who Couldn't Lose in 1975.
