    RIP Robert Schimmel, dead at 60



    My favorite comedian. He was one funny bastard.

    Bummer..survives a heart attack and cancer and dies from injuries sustained in a car wreck.

    RIP

    Wow, that sucks. He was REALLY funny. First time I saw him on HBO's Rodney Dangerfield special, Dice Clay was on that one too.

    Condolences to the family and friends. I always loved his appearances on The Howard Stern Show. One of Schimmel's greatest bits of insanity was calling the Make A Wish Foundation and telling them that his sick child's (his kid really was ill, but recovered) wish was for his father (Schimmel) to screw _____. (I don't remember the female celebrity, but it may have been Dolly Parton or another chick with huge breasts.)

    What a shame. My wife and I saw him a few times and always tried to catch him on HBO when he was on. Very funny dude. Cancer heart attack no problem. Kid driver kills him. I hope the kid gets some counseling. I cannot imagine the feelings/thoughts going on it that young head right about now.
    RIP

    Sad news. Schimmel was incredibly funny. The Rodney Special was the first time I saw him and I was dying. I think the late Bill Hicks was on that special too.

    Rest in peace.

    How do blind people know when they're done wiping?
