    Jonathan Winters passed away today at 87. What a wonderfully gifted nutcase he was. A master of Improvisation & mayhem whose talents will never be equalled. Thank you for Maude Frickert & Elwood P. Suggs & a million laughs, Mr. Winters, may you continue to tear up the next level...

    Truly one of the all-time greats...at least in my lifetime. Tough day for Robin Williams, he idolized Winters.

    He made me laugh as a kid. I can vaguely remember watching some of the Dean Martin roasts and he was a regular on that show. Pretty sure he did some stuff on the Carol Burnett show as well. He was a funny dude for sure....

    RIP Jonathan......

    Anyone remember "Its a mad mad world" JW was in that in top form. I laughed through that whole movie. A lot of the old greats were in it. I was 7 years old at the time

    Sad news. Jonathan Winters was a master. Right up there with George Carlin for me. Here are a very few of the many sides of JW. He was one of a kind.

    I watched the first you tube and got lost for about an hour. He was a legend. I think I will get the mad movie also.
