Was he "survived by his wife"? King did a hilarious bit on Johnny Carson many years ago reading actual obits from the newspaper. No matter how old the guy was or how much he had been through (wars, the Holocaust, etc.), the final line always read, "survived by his wife." :)

I'm relatively young, but not too young to be unfamiliar with King's wide variety of work. He made me laugh... a lot.

I expect that he's now making a whole new group of people laugh... a lot.

RIP Alan. You will be missed.

Moe.

And another famous star shoots out of the stratosphere...

I thought King was funny. I liked when he hosted the 1982 Young Comedians' Special (which still runs every so often on HBO Comedy), and I also enjoyed his performance in "Cat's Eye".

Sincerely,

John Kilduff...

On the upside, there haven't been as many major celeb deaths this year as there have been the last 3 years.

I always liked the man. My late mother, also, was a fan -- until Mr. King, shortly after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, announced his resulting disillusionment with the American political process on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. My reactionary mother tolerated opinions -- as long as they jibed with her own!
