Comedian, actor, and radio host Jay Thomas has passed away.
Jay passed away after a battle with cancer at 69 years old.
I first remember seeing Jay on Mork and Mindy, were he played Remo DaVinci co-owner of the New York Deli. Remo was a funny character and was featured in 20 episodes of the series.
Jay also had a small but nice run as Eddie LeBec on Cheers. He played Rhea Perlman’s estranged husband on multiple episodes over a 3 year period.
My favorite tv appearances of Jay Thomas over the years was when he would be on talk shows, especially his David Letterman Christmas-time appearances (including the Lone Ranger story). Always funny stuff.
Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of Jay Thomas.
