Oh (bleep). A dear old friend and former roommate of mine was a co-star on "Dave's World" so I met him a few times. He was such a lovely man.

RIP Harry

The comedy, acting, and magical arts lost a good one.

Much like everyone else, knew him from Night Court.

Bye.

I watched him on Night Court and Dave's World.

65 doesn't seem old to me anymore

I first saw him on the old SNL shows where he would do his comedy/magic act and was an instant fan. He was one of those guys who made magic cool and funny in the days when it tended to lean towards the cheesy.

Yeah, "Night Court" had a good run, and he was a good dude. 65 is just so young. RIP.
