Bob Elliott, 1923-2016

Bob Elliott, the surviving member of the great comedy duo Bob & Ray, has died. He was 92.

Nobody much younger than I am will even know who these people were. It’s the curse of the old that only they know, as the great mill of history grinds the past into dust, what has been lost. And if you don’t know, why would you care?

You can enjoy some Bob & Ray here.

    As far as the young are concerned, they’re living in a golden age of comedy, stocked with ingenious wits of the caliber of Stephen Colbert, Amy Schumer, and Kevin Hart.
