David Brenner, comedian and favorite The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson guest, has passed away from cancer at the age of 78.
Johnny Caron said about Brenner: “He’s very clever. Somewhat warped. Which is — if you’re going to do comedy, you should be a little bit warped, I think.”
Brenner told NBC that his last request was that $100 in small bills would be placed in his left sock “just in case tipping is recommended where I’m going.”
Conan O’ Brien tweeted: “So sad to hear David Brenner passed. He was a frequent & always hilarious guest on my Late Night show. He will be missed.”
He leaves behind three children and wife.
I can just imagine Carson welcoming him to the couch from the great beyond.
