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."

well the stupid are funny is my motto, window lickers

I saw him in person, this is not the first time he died.

I think you have to be middle aged to get it. Carson was the best, and Brenner was his best guest host (Joan Rivers has been airbrushed out of Tonight Show history).

Carson picked him because he was cool.

RIP

I see you've bought into the 70 is the new 30 concept.

From another site >> His family said in a statement on Saturday, "In David's final request he asked that one hundred dollars in small bills be placed in his left sock 'just in case tipping is recommended where I'm going.' "

He did not die.  Carson merely asked for him to guest host for him on The Tonight Show in the sky.

fusillade762: My favorite joke of his:


I know and love that joke - and I've used it to good effect the ~2-3 times in my life when it made sense - but I never knew it was his. I have no idea where I heard it first - it must've been ~3-4 decades ago at least.
So if I use it again, I will again pretend that I'm being just my usual witty self, but this time I'll know deep down that I stole it from him... thanks!

Loved me the Brenner, Philly's favorite comedic son. A good life, lived well.

Goodnight, Funnyman!  RIP

I have no idea who this man is, but I hear Joan Rivers thought a lot of him, so he must've been something special 40, 60 or more years ago.  Rest in peace, friend of Joan Rivers.

Born in Philadelphia in the late '30s to a working class family. Grew up in a low-to-middle class Philly neighborhood, went to high school and did a tour in the military before returning to Philly to attend Temple University. Did a number of TV  projects and settled into comedy, including numerous appearances on the Tonight show.

Describes Brenner perfectly, right?

It also describes Bill Cosby.

You do realize Leno is off the air, right?    You can stop telling everyone how much you hate him now.  To be honest, hating on Leno makes you look like more of a douchebag than a cool hipster.

Especially now that he doesn't have a TV show.

MrHappyRotter: I have no idea who this man is, but I hear Joan Rivers thought a lot of him, so he must've been a Jewish Catskill Mountains comedian kind of guy


There, that's better.

Look, the RIP thing is old and stupid.  But you went with Walter Brennan and that's so wonderfully old school that I applaud it.

So sorry to see you go.

I remember him talking about riding the subway in New York, and because the seat was sticky, he sat on a newspaper. Another guy got on, looked at him and said, "Hey you readin' that paper?"

He stood up, turned the page, sat back down and replied, "Yup".

When on Carson, he was the only one who would stand on Johnny's star on stage.
