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.

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.

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.
