Some very sad news over the weekend...
Comedian David Brenner, a regular on Johnny Carson's "The Tonight Show," has died after a battle with cancer, a family spokesman said Saturday. He was 78.
Brenner was a staple on Carson's late-night show, appearing more times than any other guest -- 158. Even in death, he kept the jokes coming.
Brenner's final request, according to family spokesman Jeff Abraham, was to have $100 in small bills tucked in his sock -- "just in case tipping is recommended where I'm going."
His gravesite will read: "If this is supposed to be a joke -- then I don't get it!,"
I used to watch he and Joan Rivers whenever they would appear on a show (and they often worked together).
A very funny man who will be greatly missed.
