Huge loss for comedy


Leslie Nielsen died today. Read here. Brutal day for me as a Packer fan and a fan of comedy. Great actor – his role in Airplane is one of the most enduring comedy roles in movie history. Really sad.

    AWH – Wow, what a huge loss. You and I have had many a talk and a laugh for our man, Leslie. In picking a quote, where to begin? How about Naked Gun 2 1/2……RIP

    tb – fantastic.

    Or, perhaps, the classic: I’d just like to say good luck, we’re all counting on you.

    Police squad was one of my favourite shows when I was a youngster. Those ‘shootouts’ either side of a trash can were brilliant. A sad loss indeed 😦

    Surely you can’t be serious…

    Very sad, indeed. I’ll always remember Leslie for his role in the original Police Squad! TV show. Smarter and funnier than the Naked Gun movies that followed (in my opinion, anyway), it was unfortunately axed after only 6 shows. And like Nielsen himself, the show was far ahead of it’s time. Hope you don’t mind me adding this link:

    Just think; the next time I shoot someone, I could be arrested.
