This isn't funny.
 
2007-03-11 05:22:48 PM
Wow. Again? He just shot himself last night too.
 
2007-03-11 05:22:57 PM
Wha?
 
2007-03-11 05:23:34 PM
He's been shooting himself over and over for about the past 15 hours.

Richard Jeni, your HBO comedy specials have brought pleasure to millions.

zamros: Richard Jeni, your HBO comedy specials have brought pleasure to millions.

Dang, I came into reference that.
 
2007-03-11 05:25:55 PM
Jenny! Jenny! Yeah, Jenny, don't stop. Oh, Richard Jeni, your HBO specials have brought pleasure to millions! And what a sweet ass...
 
2007-03-11 05:26:05 PM
He was actually funny.
 
2007-03-11 05:26:34 PM
One minute and one second, zamros.
 
2007-03-11 05:27:18 PM
This wasn't Elliott Smith's girlfriend, too, was it?
 
2007-03-11 05:27:23 PM
WoW....How Sad.
 
2007-03-11 05:27:23 PM
So when is this thread going to vanish?
 
2007-03-11 05:27:47 PM
wtf? why would he kill himself?
 
2007-03-11 05:27:56 PM
His girlfriend killed him.
 
2007-03-11 05:28:02 PM
it was so good he did it twice?

stirfrybry: So when is this thread going to vanish?

It might have to shoot itself in the head.
 
2007-03-11 05:28:47 PM
I find it highly depressing that the bogus, untrustworthy news outlets beat the real ones on this by hours.....

The man was flat out funny...
he will be missed
 
2007-03-11 05:29:12 PM
So he died last night, was upgraded to alive, and is now dead again?

Is this a promo for his upcoming HBO special "Castro - the Musical" or something?
 
2007-03-11 05:29:14 PM
Generalissimo Fransisco Franc--- aw screw it.
 
2007-03-11 05:29:40 PM
According to google, his official website may "harm my computer."

I'm going to unpleasant places for laughing at that.
 
2007-03-11 05:29:55 PM
The only confirmation of this so far is a Wiki article. His website seems to have been hacked (check at your own risk), but nobody else seems to know he's dead.

/maybe somebody should tell him?

C-Bear: "This wasn't Elliott Smith's girlfriend, too, was it?"

Ya know, I thought the exact same thing until I realized it was a gunshot wound and not a knife to the chest.

PS

Why couldn't it have been Dane Cook?
 
2007-03-11 05:30:43 PM
From the headline I thought he'd pulled a Micheal Richards and yelled various racial epithets while on stage.
 
2007-03-11 05:32:08 PM
Police found the 45-year-old comedian alive but gravely injured in a West Hollywood home when they responded to a call Saturday morning from Jeni's girlfriend

Holy shiat...
 
2007-03-11 05:32:29 PM
Damn. I had Andrew Dice Clay in the comedy death pool.
 
2007-03-11 05:32:54 PM
Google news has had a bunch of links about it over the last few hours that I noticed.
Maybe he had some terminal illness and didn't want to stick it out through all the pain and suffering? dunno.

Probably because Dane Cook has more money than God right now. He'll stop being popular in about a year or so.

You mean the ones that don't check their sources beat the ones that do? Color me shocked.
 
2007-03-11 05:34:11 PM
Damn, that's really sad, he was hilarious.
 
2007-03-11 05:34:27 PM
"My boyfriend shot himself in the face."

Damn... shooting yourself in the face in front of your girlfriend is one way to say "I love you". Guess he loved her so much he couldn't just say it with flowers.


I'm gonna wait till the funeral though.. I have a feeling he's going to jump out of the casket and yell "TA-DA! The Aristocrats!".
... or at least have his cold, lifeless body be rigged up to do that.


/What's death without a good punchline?
 
2007-03-11 05:34:47 PM
How many times does this guy plan on killing himself?
 
2007-03-11 05:34:53 PM
JSieverts:

Many here were saying they didn't believe it because there was nothing from the "legit" news organizations. Some probably still don't...
 
2007-03-11 05:35:17 PM
Wow, I was bummed about Brad Delp, but it must have really bummed Jeni out...
 
2007-03-11 05:35:29 PM
Holy shiat that's sad.

I watched "A Big Steaming Pile of Me" last year and it was farking great.

Rest in peace, Mr. Jeni.
 
2007-03-11 05:35:32 PM
That's terrible. He was awesome.
 
2007-03-11 05:35:54 PM
good point

now, what was the reference on the earlier, deleted thread, about Michael J Fox?
 
2007-03-11 05:36:14 PM
Too bad. He was OK in my book.

# "Batman" .... Host (1 episode, 1994)
... aka Batman: The Animated Series
... aka The Adventures of Batman & Robin
- Make 'Em Laugh (1994) TV Episode (voice) .... Host
# The Mask (1994) .... Charlie Schumaker
# "Married with Children" .... with Prom Queen(1989) TV

There are still legit news organizations?
 
2007-03-11 05:37:03 PM
I am with the WTF? crowd. He was very funny and I did not think he would be the type of guy to off himself.
 
2007-03-11 05:37:15 PM
WTF? Why would he do that?

/twice even.
 
2007-03-11 05:37:32 PM
So long Richard Jeni, sorry I always thought you were Kevin Pollak.
 
2007-03-11 05:38:32 PM
"My boyfriend shot himself in the face."

Eisenman said suicide had not been officially confirmed and the investigation was continuing.


might wanna get a good lawyer, honey.

Police found the 45-year-old comedian alive but gravely injured

And that's the problem with suicide. You can never be sure it will work. If it doesn't, now you've really messed up your life.

Hallmark should design a line of "Last Kiss" greeting cards for these kinds of occassions
 
2007-03-11 05:39:08 PM
Some things do bear repeating.

Most of the stuff on Fark, not so much.

And for the record, the investigation is ongoing.
