Re: Jonathan Winters, RIP
I've been reading a number of online articles about Winters, and I've read some great stories. One writer said he ran into him a few years ago at the Montreal Comedy Festival, and asked him "What new comedians have you seen at the festival that have impressed you?".
Winters replied, "I'm sorry-I haven't had a chance to see any of the new comedians...My wife has been very ill, and I've been spending most of my time in our hotel room taking care of her."
"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that", said the writer.
"Yes", replied Winters, "I probably shouldn't have flown her here air cargo...it's so cold , and there are animals in there..."
