Jonathan Winters

The great improvisational comedian Jonathan Winters died last night at age 87.  Back in the "oldie" days, Winters was someone the Hackwhackers would beg to stay up for because there was no one funnier on t.v.  His comedy was an inspiration for Robin Williams, George Carlin, Jim Carrey, and many others.  This is a nice, but oh-so-brief sampling of his genius (check out what he does with the stick on the Jack Paar show):
