Re: The Day the Comedy Died
Winters was a comedic genius. Robin Williams was a huge fan of his and tributes his comedic success to Jonathan Winters. Age ago, I think it may have been on sixty minutes, Williams and Winters were ad libbing together and it was pure hilarity,
My favorite distant memory of Jonathon was that commercial he did for revel ice cream bars, where he was wearing his spotless white ice cream man suit and hat and would look at this kid with chocolate and ice cream smeared all over his face, and with perfect timing and a blend of disgust and disdain, remark "rookie"
