Smoky, Thank you for the nice comment. My wife and I just got back from a month's vacation to Thailand. Thailand is 14 hours ahead of Utah time, and we are having a rough time adjusting to the time difference. Having to readjust to COLD COLD Utah. Best to you this holiday season. Merry Christmas.
Very interesting thoughts, but only God knows the number of our days. Curses are part of the reasons for these early deaths. That is why knowing the Master who can break curses, Jesus Christ and and His blood shed on the cross is so very important for living a full life. Read the Good Book and find life!
Yes and Andy Kaufman and Freddie Prinze. I am a big fan of all these modern day legends. Thinking back on the old crowd of Chaplin, Marx and Jack Benny they lived a good long time. George Burns and Bob Hope too. I think this modern crowd feels they can't live up to the expectation of always being funny. They do coke and never want to let the people down.
You have a thrilling revelation in your poem and comments. Musicians, especially here in Kenya, die very young. What carries them home too soon is a secret only known to their Creator. I like your enervating read.
My observation is that there is a Curse of Three that comedians need to be aware of. Ages ending in 33,43,53, and 63 are deadly for comedians. They also need to be wary of the year before and after these key ages. A few well known comedians who are in these zones of death are, Ladies: Melissa Ivy Rauch, age 34, Melissa McCarthy, age 44, Julia Louis Dreyfus, age 53 and Roseanne Barr, age 62. Gentlemen: Simon Helberg, age 33, Kunal Nayyar, age 33, and fast approaching, Jim Parsons, age 41, and Jerry Seinfeld, age 60. Only time will tell.
There are many other comedians who have passed too soon. Bill Hicks, age 32, Sam Kinison, age 38, Greg Giraldo, age 44 and Robert Schimmel, age 60. I'm sure there any many more to add to the list. Why are they taken so soon? ? ?
