Sad to be writing this. The world of comedy got a little darker today with the news of comedian Ralphie May’s passing. He suffered a heart attack after a battle with pneumonia. He was still performing despite being ill, and even performed last night in Vegas at Harrah’s.
Ralphie May leaves behind two children who he had with ex-wife comedian Lahna Turner.
Already the comic world and fans are pouring comments into social media recalling stories and celebrating him for his kindness and generosity. As a fan of his comedy, I can say he will be greatly remembered and greatly missed. He was 45.
