Began a search after reading a news item and learned these great 'funny' men had died. Listed in no particular order. Lenny Bruce, David Brenner, Johnny Carson, Rodney Dangerfield, Sam Kinison, Flip Wilson, Buddy Hackett, Henny Youngman, George Carlin, Joan Rivers, Richard Pryor, Jonathan Winters, Robin Williams, Gary Shandling.
Still living Don Rickles 90! Bob Newhart 87! Jackie Mason 85!
Check out Crowder.
Robin Williams - NO! A rabid nasty liberal with a mouth you wouldn’t believe when talking about Republicans.
Lenny Bruce is dead????????
Bob Hope and Democrats:
George Carlin, Joan Rivers, Richard Pryor...
Norm Crosby = 89
Professor Irwin Corey = 102
One thing about most of them is that they could be funny without all the obscene trash talking.
So many of the clowns today got there by saying classless things that were over the top for shock value. They’re not really funny if you take out the f-word and all the filth.
A 6th grade kid can say the f-word and can talk a lot of filth. It really doesn’t require much talent. Same could be said for a lot of the movies being produced today.
The last decade or so of Carlin’s career isn’t missed.
well, yes - he died in 1966 at age 40.
I liked Garry Shandling and David Brenner.
Can only make money making fun of Donald Trump these days, so not interested.

SOME of them are missed......others, no comment
