He and his comedy troupe, the MoHos, would perform at the downtown stage theater (The Grove) of my city a few times.  Probably the biggest name to perform there I can think of.  RIP

Dammit. He was a funny guy. I think I first saw him on Fernwood 2 Night. He'll be missed.

His turns in all those fake documentaries (Spinal Tap, Best In Show, etc.) provided some of the best moments in those films. He was one of those guys who, when you saw him come on the screen you knew you were going to laugh. Big loss for the comedy world.

hope he gets a good cut before the showing, I'd hate for him to be mistaken for a member of Tap.

Always delivered the goods. He probably could have made the phone book funny.

RIP.

I just rewatched Waiting For Guffman in his honor. A hilarious movie that represents his talent for humor. He will be missed!
