And here is David Brenner’s obituary (via the Boston Globe’s AP pickup).
David Brenner, 78; comedian seen on ‘Tonight Show’
David Brenner, the gangly, toothy-grinned ‘‘Tonight Show’’ favorite whose brand of observational comedy became a staple for other stand-ups, including Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Reiser, died Saturday. He was 78 . . .
The lanky, always sharply dressed Mr. Brenner became one of the most frequent visitors to Johnny Carson’s ‘‘Tonight’’ in the 1970s and ‘80s . . .
His 150-plus appearances as guest and substitute host turned the former documentary filmmaker into a hot comedian, one who was ubiquitous on other talk shows and game shows.
One hundred fifty appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson? Seriously?
Anyone wanna guess who’ll make 150 appearances on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon?
Yeah, we thought so.
