Original 'observational' comic David Brenner dies at 78 - Celebrity News - Entertainment - Catholic Online

An appearance by David Brenner on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was always a 'must see' event for me. His humour was founded on the principle that laughter could be mined from the everyday, mundane events in people's lives. This wisdom has always inspired me. He will be missed.



Rest in peace Mr. Brenner... and thank you for imparting the gift of laughter and perspective to a grateful generation.

    1. Larry: MANY THANKS for this link. My brother Michael held the record for being the smallest baby born premature (1.1 lb) until some time in the mid 1980's and this year he turns 58. (His twin, James sadly only lived a few days before dying) Even though Mike was born a little more than a year before me, he only made it home from the hospital a few scant weeks before I made my arrival. The video sure helps me get some perspective on what a struggle those months must have been for been for him and my parents. I am grateful for such a wonderful St. Patrick's Day gift as seeing this video. Thank you.
