Brooks and Reiner are the first that came to mind. Then we also have to consider Dick Van Dyke who is 94. 

Betty White should be in the conversation as well.  She's 98.

In the conversation as great comedic minds still with us, not next to go. Betty White is going to be around another decade or so.

Fred Willard was so cool, he got popped for pulling his pud in a porn theatre at 72 and no one really gave a shit. I guess he lost some crappy narrating job, but was later hired as a recurring character on the biggest sitcom on TV.

RIP, funny man, one of my favorites.

”How much do you think I can bench?”

Honest to god question here since I wasn't alive then,  what was the purpose of the theater then if you couldn't whip it out?

You weren't alive in 2012 when he was arrested?

Maybe I misunderstood. Thought it was in 72 not at age 72. My bad.

Kimmel spent most of his show yesterday remembering Fred.   dude was really hilarious

 

 

"Like a Christmas tree in June." That's great. 

I saw the Space Force bit. I didn't know he was a frequent guest. Thanks for posting that. 

"How can you tell if Thomas Jefferson has been to your house? The drain is clogged and your slaves are pregnant."

Hysterical.

I had first seen him on "Fernwood Tonight," a show my much older brother used to watch when I was a kid.  It was a small-town Tonight's Show knockoff, with Fred playing the Ed McMahon role to Martin Mull's Carson:

 

I saw him in person about 12 years ago waiting in line for tickets at a UHawaii baseball game.  I begged my daughter to go say, "Aren't you Fred Willard from Fernwood Tonight?"  but she wouldn't.  So I walked up to him, stuck my hand out, and said, "Mr. Willard, I loved your work on Fernwood Tonight."  He completely busted out laughing, grabbed me around the shoulders and bellowed, "NO ONE HAS EVER TOLD ME THAT BEFORE!"
