Harold Ramis Dead at 69


Recommended Posts

The world is a much less funny place today due to the death of Harold Ramis. Movie comedy legend...think:

Animal House, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Stripes, Groudhog Day and many more...he was the writer of co-writer on those movies and more. He was also a hilarious actor..perfect deadpan style. harold was also brilliant on Second City TV.

Thankfully, he left us a legacy of humour that will never die.

His one minute in the movie "Knocked Up" drew the whole thing together. Writer, actor, producer and from what I read, a genuinely humble warm-hearted human being, his work was always fresh and funny. Had never seen "Analyse This" until last night on cable. It had me laughing out loud, as all his stuff did.

The future is little less enjoyable without him.
