The Comedy World Loses Kevin Meaney
On Friday October 21st , the comedy world lost another funnyman. Kevin Meaney passed away at the age of 60. Meaney got his break in 1986 with his own HBO special which lead to about a dozen of appearances on the tonight show.
Meaney continued his career on television, particularly cartons. He was involved in some form with Dr. Katz, SpaceGhost Coast to Coast, Garfield and Friends, and Rocko’s modern life in the 90’s. In the 2000’s he performed on broadway for seven years in the show Hairspray, and released a comedy album in 2004 titled “That’s Not Right”.
The last few years he has been living quietly and doing shows in comedy clubs. Meany will be missed as a comedian and a generally nice guy.
