Remembering comedian Richard Jeni

MONDAY 8/21/11- Richard Jeni was voted one of the '100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time' by Comedy Central and was named Best Male Stand-Up Comic by the American Comedy Awards. His five cable stand-up specials included three for HBO, and two for Showtime, Boy from New York City (1990) and Richard Jeni: Crazy from The Heat (1992). Jeni also starred in his own television series “Platypus Man” and co-starred opposite Jim Carrey in the 1994 blockbuster hit "The Mask." Following a period of severe depression, Richard committed suicide in 2007
