Before Dice, Kinison and Clay there was Corey. The comedian had been sick and in the hospital but sent home ‘feeling better’ just two days before he died Monday evening. His last meal was comprised of ice cream and egg drop soup which somehow seems so fitting for a man with such a surreal brand of comedy.
“Sometimes, I forget what I’m talking about in the middle of a word,” Corey said at his 100th birthday party.
Corey mixed social commentary into his playful approach to language. At his birthday party in 2014, he said, “Ten years ago, we had Johnny Cash. We had Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Today, 10 years later, there’s no cash. There’s no hope. There’s no jobs.”
Corey was 102.
