Home Celebrity Comic David Brenner Dies: “He’s Now Making the Devil Laugh” Tweets Joan...

David Brenner–he died today at 78 from what’s being reported as an aggressive cancer. His best pal was Joan Rivers. She tweeted:

Brenner was the coolest and the funniest. He was a huge star in the 60s and 70s. In the 80s he had a short lived syndicated talk show featuring Billy Preston as the band leader. The show filmed in New York; I went to it several times. It was almost too good a talk show, and it couldn’t survive. RIP David, you were one of the very very best.
