Who? This guy:



His material never seemed particularly funny, but he seems to have inspired a number of other comedians. Check him out in Dinner for Five

No, I thought there was a username similar to the JW.

Edit: JohnathanStrange is whom I was thinking of apparently. Strange that I would get that so confused. See what I did there?

Wow, that makes me feel old.  He was the funniest comedian I've ever seen.  I saw a couple of times with him and Robin Williams just improving together.  I could not breathe.  Too funny.  You couldn't even describe it. It was the combination of faces, sounds, jabs, jokes, characters and insanity that was so much more than the sum of the parts.  He will be missed.

I remember Winters as the sound effect guy.  Hell, I remember him on Scooby Doo doing the helicopter sound when I was a kid.   I'm sure he'll be missed.

Big fan, and I'm very sad.
