RIP Edgar Külow

 Just a few days after his 87th birthday actor, comedian, writer and director Edgar Külow has died. A news release stated he fell at his home and suffered a hip fracture and had to be operated on but died of complications on September 29th in Berlin. A native of Westphalia, Külow was born on September 10, 1925 in Werdohl. Edgar took acting lessons in Leipzig, worked at the local radio station, then as a writer, director and sometimes manager of the cabaret "Pepper Mill". Later he worked for other cabarets and the satirical magazine "Eulenspiegel". He was, for a few years, a member of the cast of the satirical television series "Tele-BZ". He became a member of several TV casts, designed numerous, often quirky supporting roles, and was until recently still active as an actor. He also wrote several books, including "Koslowski in Weimar" and "Koslowski in parliament". Külow appeared in one Euro-western as O’Hara with Dean Reed in “Kit & Co.” (1974).
