  • Geo

    One of the funniest comedians ever. A legend.

  • Andy from Beaverton

    One of my all time favorites. Almost no swearing and lightening fast witted, there will never be another like him.

  • Buckwheat

    Always seemed to be in the same category as Red Skelton. Clean light, fun humor and an actual comedian. Able to make jokes that are funny even 20+ years later. The humor today seems to be snarky and mostly political. So much funnier when you have an actual comedian.

    TY Jonco for these. I thought he was great too but mostly my Dad did. Brought back memories from Dad who passed in 2005.

    Hope you all didn’t have any damage from recent tornadoes.

  • DJ

    Robin Williams has always credited Jonathan Winters with being one of his big influences. You can really see it in these videos.

    • Jonco

      That’s so true. I head that Robin said something to that effect just today on the passing of a really funny man.

  • these were great Jonco. RIP JW you were one of a kind – kind of – well you were kind.
