I didn't even know he was still alive until I heard he'd died, and then there were two news reports that said he was on Mork & Mindy. Are they kidding? THAT's what they distilled his career into!?

Goodnight funnyman.

Used to watch the Jonathan Winters Show. Right at the end, one of the stagehands would toss him a random object, and he would have to improv with the object for one full minute- no prep, no rehearsal. I remember the night they threw him a banana!
