    One of my favorites in the whole wide world. Ever since I was a boy and saw him on a PSA for litter I was inspired. He was just winging it, you could tell. I only saw that PSA once or twice but still remember it after 40 years. I'll miss him. :(

    Winters on Lettermen showing a short film he made. 1986

    Jonathan spent the better part of his life making us laugh. I think he'd want us all to keep laughing now. It is, after all, the best medicine.

    I'll watch IAMMMMW tonight in his memory.

    While he's rightfully known as a legend in comedy, check out an episode of The Twilight Zone (entitled A Game Of Pool) to see him give a good dramatic performance.

    Comedy or the rare dramatic role, always entertaining, thank you for making me laugh, and putting a smile in my face just from certain looks. Prayer’s to the Winters family. RIP
