    No. God no.

    One of my top five favorite comedians ever. A genuinely funny guy I can't wait to hear every time he comes up at XM 150.

    RIP, Richard.

    I feel exactly the same way, Birdscribe.

    I've even seen him live.

    Damn, damn, damn.

    His last HBO Special was some of his best work...

    I guess comedians are the most tortured people...

    I loved the one that that "Platypus" in the title.

    Don't know if that was the latest one or not -- probably not.

    You are absolutely right on that one. I dated a woman who was an aspiring stand-up, and that was even worse, a tortured soul who hadn't even begun to sniff at success.

    I am a bit perplexed at trying to find this obit on line. MSNBC, CNN, LA Times, nada. You'd think it would show up somewhere.
