“My mother never saw the irony of calling me a son of a bitch”

Andy Nulman (formerly of the Just for Laughs festival) breaks the news that comedian Richard Jeni (quotes) has committed suicide. No news links yet. Apparently Jeni was supposed to perform in Chicago but was replaced at the last minute. Jeni’s website is blank.

Sad. Comedy isn’t supposed to be sad.

UPDATE: The news coverage begins in the gossip column. Now AP has finally picked up the story, which means it will be in the papers tomorrow.
