    He was a funny, dirty old man. And I have no problems saying that because I know that's how he'd want to be remembered.

    I've only seen one stand-up comedian before, and it was him. It was a good show. I remember a quote by him also, which I love:

    "I think its the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately"

    Even if he wasn't always the funniest guy around, he was one of the smartest, and wittiest.

    Wow I wasn't expecting him to pass away so soon. He was such a hilarious comedian! I'm so sad that he died. :(

    ...if only the life cycle really were backwards

    ...he could have spent his last 9 months floating and then finished off as an orgasm.
