I watched him when the show started in '82 and for many years afterwards. Funny man, and great comic timing for someone who didn't have much formal acting training.

Several years ago, Letterman had a touching tribute video in memory of Calvert. And then he walked out and said, "I'm not dead, you b******!"

I saw him live once--probably around 1985. He was handing out "toast on a stick" to the audience. You've never had toast until you've had it on a stick.

Well, perhaps they will put out a DVD of his best stuff now.

I've been waiting for it for years.

What's ironic for me is, I was listening to the Offspring's Americana CD before hearing the news; you can hear his voice on the CD after the track, 'Why Don't You Get a Job?' ... "Hey that's something everyone can enjoy!".

RIP.
