Tragic Comics

I've been watching News Radio on Star World lately and I realised how much I used to enjoy the show when it was aired in the US. I think I fell in love with Maura Tierney when I watched that show. Still in love, in case you're wondering. That's not what this is about though.

I miss Phil Hartman. He's such a great character on the show and he was such a funny guy. Every time I heard his voice on The Simpsons it made me laugh. Still does, whenever I watch The Simpsons, but now there's a tinge of sadness. In case you didn't know, Hartman was killed by his wife who then committed suicide.

Why do some comics have such tragic endings? Hartman, Chris Farley, John Belushi. It's a shame.
