Is Jimmy The Greek still alive? Maybe they could commiserate.

Ain't heard from Jimmy the Greek in a helluva long time. He used to live an hour or so from me and we would get together at least once a month for general farting around. All in all a nice guy.

Just googled him...died in '96....his real name was Dimetrios something something souterapolous or something. Dunno how many times he was married, but at least two lived nearby, one near Baltimore and another moved to Annapolis from Joisey or somewhere.....I say married...can't be sure...the one in Baltimore had a daughter and they didn't get along very well, the other had a son, met him a couple of times when Jimmy had custody.

I guess Rick did not "get" the comedy routine.

Just as well, his show was awful, a true waste of the electrons used to produce it.
His style of infotainment seemed more in line with FOX than CNN.
