Rodney Dangerfield

Rodney Dangerfield, he of the classic one-liners, has passed away.

I met Dangerfield many years ago when my sister-in-law, Joanne Barry, headlined at his famous nightclub in Manhattan. She appeared there many times, but the one time all of us remember was the first. Dressed in an elegant gown, she ran into Dangerfield on the stairs to her dressing room, and he said to her: "Where did you work tonight?" "Here, in your club," she answered. It became a running joke between them everytime she went back to the club to perform.

He'll be missed.
