In 1960, he appeared in Ted Flicker's improvisational group The Premise Off-Broadway, and transferred with the show to the Comedy Theatre in London's West End. From there, he graduated to writing and performing for the British satire show That Was the Week That Was (popularly known as TW3) on BBC television, for producer Ned Sherrin and David Frost. Staying in London for several years, his foremost film role was as "Tassos Bravos" in Robert Aldrich's The Dirty Dozen.

In 1967 he appeared as the Announcer in the Prisoner episode 'The General'.

In 1974, on British television, he played Captain Harry Nugent in the second series of BBC's WWII POW drama "Colditz".

He returned to the United States in the mid 1970s, appearing in several TV series and films including Falling Down, Miller's Crossing, Loose Cannons, Turk 182!, and All in the Family. His last role, in 2005, was on an episode of Joan of Arcadia.

He taught acting for over 30 years at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, and wrote for television.
