Sorry to hear that, I recall listening to his skits on dads old 45s when I was still pre teen.
Here's one of my favourites.

He was one of the greats. Probably not many now even recognize the name.

The man inspired me for years and I got into sound design because of "Rumblings of Mutiny" and "Filling Lake Michigan with Hot Chocolate"

RIP, Ol' Pizzaroll.

I,too, remember my parent's LPs. I remember Stan from the Bert and Harry Piel commercials.

It was "The United States of America" for me. Sad to see him go.

The New York Times gave him an fairly comprehensive obit. I got a chuckle just reading about some of his satires.
