One of my "all time" favorite comedians has passed away. Probably best remembered for his starring roll in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," I remember when he first started out appearing on the Jack Paar show. I still have a recording that my father had made, long before he was commercially available, of his (Marine Corps Landing" routine and his "Pet Shop" routine. I am glad to find out that he found much to amuse himself and enjoy in his retirement in Montecito, California.

His destruction of the gas station in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World is brilliant:
