And another RIP for Neil Simon...

    His legendary body of work includes 'The Odd Couple,' 'Barefoot in the Park,' 'Promises, Promises,' 'The Goodbye Girl' and 'Lost in Yonkers.'

    Neil Simon, the pioneering playwright who set a new tone in theatrical comedy with such shows as The Odd Couple and captured the spirit of the middle-class American family with plays like Lost in Yonkers, has died. He was 91.

    Simon, who boasted more combined Oscar (four) and Tony (17, winning three times) nominations than any other writer, died early Sunday of complications from pneumonia at NewYork-Presbyterian hospital in Manhatan, publicist Rick Miramontez said.

    Say what you will, this guy was an icon that wrote some of the most popular scripts of the late 20th Century.

  • He got his start in the writers room of ' Your Show of Shows' in the 1950's. That writers room has proven to have great longevity, as both Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner got their start there, too, and they are both still kicking into their 90's. RIP, Mr. Simon.
