Richard Jeni - Dead At 49

How I wish that was a title to a new stand-up special for the guy, but it's not.

It looks to be suicide.

I was a fan of Richard's since his stand-up specials back on Showtime. And after that, I was hooked. Followed his career through the HBO specials and then his small stand-up stuff for Coke that you'd see run before films in the late 90s.

I haven't really collected my thoughts on this whole thing. I'm sad as all fuck because of it though. In the world of Comedy, he was my U2 - if that gives you any idea on how much I liked the guy. I guess I'll just leave with some links:
