On the passing today of Comic - Professor Irwin Corey; I knew that writing anything about him wouldn't do him justice of the peace arbitrarily smothered his head in her bosom thinking of heaven on earth & a space ship of fools.
...I loved him so much; whenever he said "however", I knew there'd be more to come back little Sheba & all the big Shebas in the land of milk & honey I'm home.
Today, at 102 he passed away - quietly, I don't know about - but loved worldwide for his intellectual doublespeak & stream of consciousness academic non-sense.
Billed as "The Foremost Authority"; he would spoof the elite & the rest of the world giggled with glee.
As a child; is parents were so destitute, they placed him & his 5 siblings in the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York.
With this new view of sensitivity to the real world & its incongruities & hypocrisies - it's my guess he played this farce for us to lose ourselves in laughter with him.
Performing in all the entertainment venues - Vaudeville, Stage, Radio, Broadway, TV & Movies; he made his mark on audiences for 8 decades.
This disheveled & confused man brought so much joy into my heart & legions of others; we may never see another quite like him again - for this Comedic Lightning strikes certain people with talent so rare.
