Phil had such a good dead-pan humor and it's really sad what happened to him.
Losing him was a real loss.

A commedian that made it on Saturday Night Live. He made the movies House Guest, Jingle All The Way fun for the children to look at. He also made the Nick At Night tv sitcom News Radio funny. Phil Hartman, another commidean that made people laugh.
