    Sorry to hear this. :cry: I remember him as far back as the old Sid Caesar & Imogene Coca shows. He was a writer but appeared in some of their best sketches.

    He also directed such movies as the Woody Allen-scripted "Don't Drink the Water" (1969) and the Donny & Marie vehicle "Goin' Coconuts" (1978), along with a wealth of episodic television.

    My fav ETB comment.....

    "Jelsik (sp?) walk with me, Jelsik talk with me, Jelsik, kiss my mouth"

    From an episode where ETB is trying to go to the Army so he can get a "uneeform" so the girls will like him like they like Jelsik.....RIP ETB

    Andy: "Ernest T. Why do you talk through your nose like that?"

    Ernest T.: "That's so I can talk whilst I eat!"

    How 'bout when he went back to school and when he would answer a math question he'd shuffle his feet while he was thinking of the answer?
