Comedian Jonathan Winters died in California at age 87
AP: Comedian Jonathan Winters died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, a family friend said. He was 87.
Winters was a master of improvisational comedy, with a grab bag of eccentric personalities and facial expressions. Characters such as the dirty old lady Maude Frickert were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio.
He was introduced to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams’ goofball alien in the final season of ABC’s “Mork and Mindy.”
