Shandling died Thursday of a heart attack. His death was met with an outpouring of praise and condolences from fellow comedians and actors.
Fallon’s tribute consisted of the host’s candid musings about Shandling’s funniest bits; he spoke to his audience casually as though discussing a fallen peer among friends.
“He was just the best,” Fallon said. “I just love him. He was one of the greatest standup comedians ever. If you’re thinking about getting into standup comedy, or if you just like watching it, you can’t go through without seeing Garry Shandling.”
Fallon then shared a clip of Shandling’s first “Tonight Show” appearance with Johnny Carson in 1981.

More and more, television shows are doing away with opening titles in favor of putting credits over first acts and getting right to the action. When Sports Night did that in 1998, I thought it was novel. Now, however, it seems to be the rule and not the exception – and those catchy TV themes that used to stick in my head seem to be falling by the wayside. It bothered me, so it was something I discussed with composer Bear McCreary in our interview, and then I saw the new Law & Order get rid of its iconic theme and wondered, “What’s become of TV themes?”

His latest blockade has been to thwart billionaire investor Ron Burkle, who has accumulated 19% of B&N’s shares and had hoped to get three new directors on the board. But this morning the existing board voted down the proposal, and so Riggio gets to keep on keeping on.

A few days later he posted this year’s line-up for the world renown festival, highlighting the African film in question, “Un homme qui crie” (A Screaming Man), by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (France, Belgium, Chad), helmer of one of my favourite African films, Abouna, as well as Daratt, among others.
But it was only while browsing the web yesterday that it came to light that there are, in fact, Two African films in competition at Cannes this year!
