The Day the Comedy Died
Yesterday one of my childhood heroes died. Jonathan Winters. He was one third of what I felt were the funniest men in the world. Red Skelton, Johnny Carson and Jonathan Winters. All three had TV shows and I don't think I missed one while growing up. In my opinion, todays group are just not the same. Not to say they aren't funny, but just not the same type of humor. A Lot of it was live and there were the obvious goofs and self laughing episodes. Ad Libs were galore and sometimes funnier than the practiced material. Now that Jonathan has passed all three of my heroes have gone. Excuse my silliness but I feel like I lost a big chunk of my soul today. RIP Jonathan.
