    I know George Carlin died at a respectable age but still, he died way too soon.

    How come Bud Abbott and Lou Costello weren’t on this list? They were both stand up comedians, made a good team, and made people laugh with their many sketches like “Who’s on First?” and “7×13=28”. I feel like they died too soon.

    Bill Hicks is Alex Jones just like Barack Obama is Osama Bin Laden.

    I remember the day Robin WIliams died. I was designing a very stupidly complicated clock on my lunch break; I named it "the Williams Clock" in his honor. This clock he would love beacuse it does not just tell time; it'll let you know some other shit too.

    Sam Kinison is funny but I have to admire someone…anyone who can pick up and leave his live. Going from preacher to entertainer.

    One thing I have to say revolving Farley is yes, the man was very funny but if his success isn't the same as say John Candy. I mean, Candy had some good movies under his belt, especially Planes, Trains, and Automobiles while when it came to film, most projects that Farley was on were pretty bad. Black Sheep was his best film and that really wasn't that good.
