    which, of course, is the lowest moment in movie history in the last 100 years

    RIP anyway Buddy
  3. He was a funny guy.

    Take it easy, Buddy.

  4. His son is part of a troupe that is doing a Rat Pack tribute show in Vegas right now. I believe the son is playing the part of Joey Bishop. The intro to the show has Buddy Hackett doing the voice of God. It's a real popular attraction right now.

    He was in 'It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World' with Sid Cesaer, Phil Silvers, Jimmy Durante, Ethel Merman and a boatload of other comedians I don't remember, an incredibly funny movie.

    Great stuff.
  6. Most recently he was on Last Comic Standing as one of the guest judges....

    ...but I don't know any of his real work.

  9. One of the funniest men ever, and a wonderful teller of stories.

    I just heard that Herbie Mann has checked out as well.

    Rest in peace guys, and thanks.
