A sad loss of a true comedy legend. Thought I'd set up a thread for comments and links so we can remember the great performances.
A great actor in some fantastic (and some not so) movies but one of the best stand-ups ever in my book. Sadly he did most of it before he hit it big in TV & films. At a time when a lot of American stand up was safe & formulaic he would explode on stage and just let rip. A real force of nature who a bit like Billy Connolly transcended the medium to appeal to a far wider audience than usual stand-ups.
Just in case you haven't seen it here he is at the height of his comedy powers in 1985. After 30 years this is still hilarious.
25 years on he still had it !
