Funny man Jonathan Winters, 87, was comic inspiration
Posted: Friday, April 12, 2013 12:00 am
Jonathan Winters, the rubber-faced comedian whose unscripted flights of fancy inspired a generation of improvisational comics, and who kept television audiences in stitches with Main Street characters like Maude Frickert, a sweet-seeming grandmother with a barbed tongue and a roving eye, died Thursday at his home in Montecito, Calif. He was 87.
His death was announced on his website, JonathanWinters.com.
