    As soon as I saw the headline earlier it was easy to visualize him. He really was a great, topical comic. RIP.

    Why are you taking it personally?

    RIP...David. Funny story...I was flying from to DC years ago and chatting with the gentleman next to me. I kept listening to his Philly accent and told him he sounded just like David Brenner. His response, "I should, he's my brother". David was married to Tai Babilonia, the figure skater....she and Randy Gardner did a show in Sun Valley back in the 70's and yours truly was in charge of the spot lights.

    I remember him well from the '70s and caught a number of his Tonight Show appearances.  When I saw the story in the paper my first thought was, "He's 78??"

    ScreamingChicken, I did a double take on the age as well.

    I thought in his 60's at most! Very funny man, RIP David!

    David Brenner's three brothers were all rabbis, as was his grandfather.

    I felt like I grew up with him.  Loved his humor.
