Lenny’s favorite comedian, Jonathan Winters, passed away last week at the age of 87. The trailblazing comic improviser was a seminal influence on scores of comedians and will be remembered as a comedy legend.
Today is the 46th anniversary of my father’s passing. He was a great man and a comedic genius. The world was forever changed by what he did on and off the stage. He will always be missed and remembered.
