I saw Sean all the time on Qi and 8 Out Of 10 Cats (and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown). The guy was immensely funny, the sort of laughter that would make your face and lungs hurt.

I had never heard of him prior and went down a youtube rabbit hole of his appearances on Jimmy Carrs various shows. Really unfortunate, the guy was hilarious.

Don Everly passed away the other day. The Everly Brothers had a huge influence on early rock and roll.

Willard Scott has died. He was most famously the Today Show weatherman and the first Ronald McDonald.

I didnít know he was in Community. Most recently I saw him in Lovecraft Country, which should have gotten more accolades, because it had some brilliant moments.

Just heard this and it really bummed me out. You're right, he was excellent in every role I recall seeing him in.
