R.I.P. Robert Schimmel

Those of you familiar with Schimmel's work will be saddened by this news.  After beating a heart attack, cancer, and the death of his 11 year-old son, to be taken by a seemingly random car accident seems unfair, at the least. 

His "Unprotected" HBO stand up special from 1999 stands as one of the funniest things I've ever seen on television.  A two-minute clip from that special on YouTube.  Warning, extremely NSFW:

Rest in peace, good sir.  Don't forget to take it out of the box first.
