|Prof. Irwin Corey|
Irwin Corey, Prof. Irwin Corey, "The World's Foremost Authority," has died at the ripe old age of 102.
Irwin Corey was a stand-up comic and actor in a tailed dinner jacket, white sneakers, a string tie that often went down to his knees, and Bernie Sanders hair whose absent-minded professor persona would ad-lib streams of superficially coherent but actually nonsensical non-sequiturs that brilliantly satirized pomposity.
It was a delight to watch him work. If you've never seen him, check out this video of his only appearance on Late Night with David Letterman.
Another case of thanks for the smiles. RIP, Irwin Corey.
