CNN)Rip Taylor, the confetti-tossing actor and comedian, died Sunday. He was 84.

Taylor was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in the intensive care unit after suffering a seizure last week, his publicist Harlan Boll said.

He was born Charles Elmer Taylor in Washington, D.C., according to Boll. Taylor served in the Korean War and began entertaining then, according to Boll.

Taylor's signature became wacky costumes and props, a handlebar mustache and his confetti tosses during the 1970s, according to IMDb. He was a frequent guest on game shows of that era, including the "Gong Show."

Taylor acted on Broadway, film and television, and was known for his over-the-top personality.
