The Sunday Funnies! [VIDEO]
Some classic comedy for your Sunday morning!
On Thursday, the world lost one of the funniest men ever. Jonathan Winters passed away at the age of 87.
Here’s what CNN had to say about his death:
Jonathan Winters, the wildly inventive actor and comedian who appeared in such films as “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” and “The Loved One” and played Robin Williams’ son on the TV show “Mork & Mindy,” has died. He was 87.
Winters died Thursday evening of natural causes at his home in Montecito, California, according to business associate Joe Petro III.
Winters was known for his comic irreverence, switching characters the way other people flick on light switches. His routines were full of non sequiturs and surreal jokes. Williams, in particular, often credited him as a great influence.
Indeed, he was greatly admired by comedians in general and was awarded the Mark Twain Prize — which goes to outstanding humorists — in 1999.
In honor of this great actor and comedian, here’s one of his classic appearances on the Dean Martin Show.
