Comic Dick Martin of Laugh In Fame Dies at 86, RIP


Comic Dick Martin has passed away at the age of 86.

Who could not forget Dick Martin, one half of the hysterical comedic dynamic duo of Rowan and Martin on Laugh-In? Dick Martin provided so us with so many laughs and was a true comedy pioneer.The TV show Laugh In was way before its time. In recent years Dick Martin had suffered from severe respiratory problems.

“He had had some pretty severe respiratory problems for many years, and he had pretty much stopped breathing a week ago,” Greenberg said.

Martin had lost the use of one of his lungs as a teenager, and needed supplemental oxygen for most of the day in his later years.

He was surrounded by family and friends when he died just after 6 p.m., Greenberg said.

Dick Martin, thank you for the laughs … Rest in Peace.

      His facial expressions in comedic performances
      were the best!

      He was right up there in my book with some
      of my all time faves… Jackie Gleason, Tim
      Conway, Carol Burnette, Harvey Korman, Lucy…
