Earlier today, comedy legend (truly, a comedy legend label that’s well earned) Fred Willard passed away earlier today at the age of 86.
Best in Show, This Is Spinal Tap, Anchorman, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, The Carol Burnett Show, SNL, The Tonight Show, and Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job! are just scratching the surface of Willard’s very long, storied career. Fred Willard has spanned the decades, the genres, the types of comedy and not only maintained his own style of comedy, but always delivered in whatever role he’s playing. In fact, he often has the best moments of an entire movie or episode even though he may not be in the lead role (just see any of the above movies/shows).
Please spend tonight going down a YouTube rabbit hole and binge watching all of his work.
