Sad , I liked his stand up comedies a lot more - just never liked slap stick , IMO to stupid.

Jonathan Winters wasn't known for either
slapstick or stand-up as much as improv.

If you're familiar with Robin Williams
...their style was strikingly similar.


...so much so, that Winters even played
Robin's SON, of all things, early in Robin's
career in "Mork & Mindy" "Nannu Nannu!"


Jonathan & Robin, together at last crazy crazy

Awww.. now that's a bit of sad news.
Interesting that he was born in Dayton, Ohio.
I hope to live to be 87....

LOL According to him, it was t'other way 'round...
...he picked up the noises, faces & mannerisms
from the natives...then exaggerated them.

Which, btw, is the same thing W.C. Fields sed.

Robin Williams has said that he modeled his style after Winters. I loved Winters. A great comic.
