He recently co-starred in the HBO comedy “Somebody Somewhere” alongside Bridget Everett, who broke the tragic news, as her farmer father, Ed Miller.

“With great sadness, the family of Michael G. Hagerty announced his death yesterday in Los Angeles,” the comedian wrote on Instagram. “A beloved character actor, his love of his hometown of Chicago and his family were the cornerstones of his life.”

“Mike, a devoted husband, is survived by his wife Mary Kathryn, his sister Mary Ann Hagerty [and] her wife Kathleen O’Rourke, and their daughter Meg. He will be sorely missed.”
