Two of comedy's greats have left us.


Recommended Posts

It saddens  me to report the loss of one of comedy's great talents.  Jerry Lewis has passed away at home in Las Vegas at the age of 91.  Robin Williams refered to him as Maestro.  He raised more than two billion dollars in his life of charity for the Muscular Dystrophy Fondation.  He acted in and directed movies throughout the 50's and 60's. 

Also, Dick Gregory passed away at the age of 84.  He was a civil rights icon and injected comedy, insight and irony to the Civil Rights movement.  They will both be missed.
