    When I was a kid, this guy was one of the greats.

    Lars, nobody's mentioned the death of Dick Gregory who might be considered a contemporary of Shelley Berman, though few comedians could have had more different styles or lives. That thought occurred to me as I was looking back at Shelley Berman's life and found "Curb Your Enthusiasm" described as "Black Comedy" which gave me several blank moments before I remembered what the term actually means.

    If you have impressions or opinions about Dick Gregory we could knock a few posts about, either here or in a dedicated thread. I think he mattered from the moment he became visible to the public, but I doubt if he was ever uncontroversial regardless of what he was doing.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    I remember Mr Gregory much more for his Political activism than his comedic career. I believe he deserves a separate thread, though.
