    Comic Rodney Dangerfield Dies in L.A. at Age 82

    14 minutes ago Entertainment - Reuters

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rodney Dangerfield (news), the goggle-eyed comic famed for his self-deprecating one-liners and signature phrase "I can't get no respect," died on Tuesday at age 82, his publicist said.

    Dangerfield, who became a pop culture sensation with a string of broad film comedies starting with "Caddyshack" in 1980, died at 1:20 p.m. PDT (4:20 p.m. EDT) at the UCLA Medical Center, where he had undergone heart valve replacement surgery in August, spokesman Kevin Sasaki said in a statement.

    My favorite Dangerfield line-

    "I was poor as a kid. Poor, poor poor. Why, if I wasnt born a boy, I wouldn'ta had nothing to play with."

    Wow, didn't realize he died till I saw this post. What a shock. I hadn't realized he was in a coma the past few weeks. Very sad, he was one of the best comics.

    That's too bad. This is the first I've heard about it..

    I'll watch Caddyshack tonight in remembrance......




    (on a side note: I remember seeing him recently on a talk-show(conan??/kimmel??), he looked pretty bad)

    Damn, I think it's especially bad when we lose comedians.

    Rest in peace, Rodney Dangerfield. [​IMG]

    Here is an excerpt from the AP story:



    Rodney always had our respect.

    Rodney had a typical Rodney line when he spoke to reporters at the hospital just before he was admitted for his heart operation:

    "If everything goes right, I'll be out in about three weeks. If it doesn't, I'll be out in about an hour and a half."

    RIP Rodney. I'll bet Lenny Bruce was waiting at the gate to meet you.

    Regards,

    Joe

    I'm about to go into the hospital, myself. When asked how long I'll be in, I "borrow" his line about 'If everything goes right...' Hope this isn't a bad omen!

    Amen, Michael--Rodney always had our respect.
