Comedian William Stephenson he has passed away.
He was only 62 years ago.
With sadness in our hearts, and shocking news is true: I was hanging out with him last month at the Comedy Cellar. He always had a big smile and always greeted me with warmness.
I found out the details of his death from one of our former writers Bryan Murray on his Facebook profile. He wrote this.
“Just over three years ago I wrote a hand full of articles for Joseph Santiago. I was given the opportunity to interview comedians as a comedy fan. Will was there for the first time Jessica and I ever saw the live comedy in New York at the Comedy Cellar.
