When Dick Martin passed last week, I started watching.
I know it's a stupid superstidence (superstition + coincidence), but celebrity deaths seem to run in packs of three.
Sure enough, veteran director / actor Sidney Pollack joined Dick earlier this week.
And today, one of my favorite comedians of all-time, a man for whom there really will never be a rival - Harvey Korman - has filled out the triumverate.
Our loss is surely heaven's gain. I can only imagine that given what a mess we're making of things down here, God was in need of some laughs.
Rest in peace guys, and thank you for all the years we got to go to pieces courtesy of your tremendous gift of laughter.
Enjoy this clip from one of my favorite Korman films: the incomparable Blazing Saddles
Oh hell, enjoy TWO clips...
