    RIP funny guy.

    His partner, Dan Rowan, apparently passed away in 1987, according to the article.

    I remember my parents watching Laugh in every week. It was so funny , and Rowan and Martin were hilarious. What a great show. I loved Lily Tomlin and Goldie in it too, as well as a bunch of other skits. Here comes the judge....

    Rest in Peace funny man Martin.
