Farewell to the original "World's Foremost Authority"

Postby Charlie O. » 10 Feb 2017, 07:36




I only just learned that Professor Irwin Corey passed away just a few days ago - of nothing more pernicious, it seems, than old age. He was 102. He started doing his prof shtick in the late 1940s, and was still "lecturing" semi-regularly until fairly recently.

I saw him in 1984, not long after the Letterman performance below (which I didn't see at the time) - at a rock club, opening for NRBQ. He killed.

I wish there was more on YouTube from his younger days. I remember seeing a hilarious appearance on The Steve Allen Show from the mid-late '50s where he wreaked even more havoc than Jerry Lee Lewis.

Bless you, sir.

And there was the rest of us thinking that it related to Copey's latest farewell..

If love could've saved you, you would've lived forever.
