Comedian Jonathan Winters died in California at age 87
AP: Comedian Jonathan Winters died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, a family friend said. He was 87.
Winters was a master of improvisational comedy, with a grab bag of eccentric personalities and facial expressions. Characters such as the dirty old lady Maude Frickert were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio.
He was introduced to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams’ goofball alien in the final season of ABC’s “Mork and Mindy.”

A true legend. Rest in peace.
Rest in peace, Roger Ebert.
Sad news in the world of comedy today. Stand-up comedian Scott Kennedy passed away last week.
You can read a thoughtful remembrance of Scott in his hometown paper, The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, and watch clips from his Comedy Central Presents special here.
Our thoughts are with Scott’s family and loved ones.
We Love You Jet Set
I’m very sad to report that we’ve lost a member of the Workaholics family.
Jet Set Hudson passed away late last week, after contributing some of the funniest, sweetest moments of our just wrapped season 3.
Jet Set lit up every room he walked into; every set he was on, and truly touched every person who had the pleasure of meeting him. To say he will be missed is an understatement, to say he was loved can never be said enough.
Rest in peace, Jet Set. I can not put into words how wonderful it was to work with and get to know you over the last three years.
Very sad news. RIP Jet Set.
