    Loooooong career.

    He went way back. He was so funny on letterman. And letterman loved him. He never disappointed.

    His exasperation made me laugh a lot.

    when I was a kid, he had a tv show in LA called TEMPO with Stan Bohrman

    man, i loved that show...

    g'night regis... you had a great run.

    here is stan with dalton trumbo... I was about 11 watching this stuff, then I'd go find the books and read them... this show was on midday for like 2 hours... it was hot in the summers so, that time of day, I'd just watch the show and lay on the floor and drink ice tea...

    Ya know, when I was a young man I thought he was just kinda a corny guy, a Johnny Carson wannabe or something like that? I don’t know just how or when it happened but I shortly thereafter found myself loving the guy!

    He was sure one hardworking entertainer. RIP Regis.

    While best remembered for Regis & Kathie Lee, I preferred his more experimental psychedelic phase co-hosting with Joey Bishop in the late 1960s:

    He was a sure thing as a guest on Letterman. Dave just abused him and he kept smiling and making us laugh.

    I once hung out with Reeg in an airport gate seating area. No one else was around.

    Loved it when he was in Letterman.

    Regis Did it right, graduated high school, got a degree, then joined the Navy. He was lieutenant JG when he sepperated from the service. Then he went out and made a career for himself. Cool guy.

    I always felt happy while watching him. I will miss his smile and that great laugh of his.
