Dick Martin 1922-2008
Comedian Dick Martin passed away yesterday from respiratory problems. He was 86.
Best known as Dan Rowan’s partner as host NBC’s popular “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” Martin also did stand-up in the 1950s, appeared as Lucille Ball’s wacky neighbor in one of her sitcoms and was the principal director on “Newhart” during the 1990s. I most recently saw him in 2001’s Bartlby.
Will he be missed? You bet your sweet bippy.
