Tracey Ullman's husband Allan McKeown, who produced a number of comedy shows with his wife, died Tuesday at 67 after a long battle against prostate cancer.

McKeown co-created "Tracey Takes On..." and "State of the Union" with Ullman, 53. The couple won an Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Musical or Comedy Series in 1997. McKeown also developed "Auf Wiedersehen" and "Pet."

Before becoming a producer, McKeown worked as a hairdresser. In recent years, McKeown produced the Broadway musical "Lennon" with Yoko Ono, and "Jerry Springer the Opera" at London's National Theatre. "Springer" won the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

The couple met in 1983 and would have celebrated their 30th anniversary on Friday. They have two children, Mabel and Johnny.

Mabel McKeown tweeted the news, as well as thanked a cancer research facility, Prostate Cancer UK, for giving her father more time.



Some on Twitter sent their condolences.
