    Wow... Him and Dean Martin were great together. RIP Jerry, and thank you for your years of service to the muscular dystrophy association. God has received a kind soul into his kingdom this day. God speed Jerry.

    The last years of his life were agonizing. He had so many injuries from his pratfall style of comedy that he spent his days is pain and misery. At first he took steroids which caused a huge weight gain that nearly killed him. Then he had an interruptor implanted in his back. That did him the most good.

    We should all be thankful that that style of comedy has gone out of acceptability.

    I'm 62, so I've seen a lot of him.

    I never thought he was very funny.

    Still, he made others laugh so RIP.

    RIP, condolences to his family.

    His comedy was ridiculously stupid. Ironically, though, he was excellent as a serious actor, the few times he ventured into that arena. I distinctly recall his very good performance in the series 'Wiseguy'. lol, which you kind of have to be O L D to remember.
    Quite a few greats did early work in that series, such as Kevin Spacey.

    He was a good guy and did so much for muscular dystrophy. He will be missed.

    . I think Jim Carry is as close as you can get to Jerry's style of comedy. Just wished these comedians would learn the art of doing good clean comedy instead of doing unclean comedy. Their are many good clean comedians, but that isn't how Hollywood rolls these day's.
