David Brenner just lost a battle with cancer.. he is dead tonight at the age of 78.
He died on a Saturday.. I think of all the Saturday nights he entertained throughout the years of his career, to half empty rooms of half drunk people to the audiences of the TONIGHT SHOW with Johnny Carson..
His humor became an inspiration for others such as Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Reiser..
He was a star of the 20th century and a trend setter for years to come..
And he never abandoned his craft.
Brenner worked steadily through 2013 doing standup. A four-day gig last December included a New Year’s Eve show at a King of Prussia, Pa., casino-resort in which he showcased young comedians.
