Actor and comedian Garry Shandling died of a heart attack at the age of 66 on Thursday, March 24th.
He brought us It’s Gary Shandling’s Show and The Larry Sanders Show, made audiences laugh through his regular appearances on Carson’s Tonight Show, and personally mentored dozens of comedians.
AM640’s Mike Stafford remembers Garry as the comedian who did Mike a huge favour about 30 years ago.
Mike interviewed Garry over the phone. However, after the 10 minute chat had concluded, Mike discovered to his horror that he had not activated his recording device!
When Mike revealed the bad news to Shandling, the comedian simply said “S*$! happens, let’s do it again.”
