What Sucks…The Reaper
Robert Schimmel, one of the funniest comics ever to talk into a microphone, died over the weekend from injuries sustained in a car accident. Schimmel had numerous, hilarious HBO specials and was also known for his great appearances on Howard Stern. His well-documented battle with cancer was the subject of his book “Cancer On 5 Dollars a Day (Chemo Not Included)”.
Robert Schimmel is one of those comedians where you can basically look at any clip of his and find yourself laughing. I’m trying to track down this bit that had me crying when I first heard it about how he once checked into a hotel room and tried to get a smoke free room and ended up getting into an argument with the hotel guy- it’s only about a 1 minute thing, but it absolutely kills me every time I hear it. Anyway, just enter his name into a YouTube search and if you’re not laughing your ass off within 15 seconds, I will refund your money for reading this blog.
In closing let me say this- F You, Reaper and RIP, Robert Schimmel.
