RIP Steve Landesberg

I had the pleasure to interview Steve Landesberg for "The Press," the college paper at the State University of New York at Cortland, when I was a student there, sometime around 1983, during a college comedy tour.

He was hilarious, and a nice man, too.

I was very sad to hear of his death this morning at the early age of 65.

Rest in peace, Mr. Landesberg.

Thanks to Andy Markowitz for pointing out this classic clip.


  1. I was a freshman at SUNY Cortland in 1983 and went to his show. I remember having high expectations because of how much I enjoyed him in Barney Miller, and he didn't disappoint. He was hilarious. I also remember reading the interview in the college paper. Sorry to hear about his passing.

  2. Wow. That's amazing! And you're reading my blog now! That's incredible. Just amazed at these types of coincidences. All the best to you, whoever you are!!!
