U.S comedian David Brenner has lost his battle with cancer, aged 78. The funnyman, who was a regular guest on Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show, passed away in New York on Saturday (15Mar14).
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1936, Brenner appeared on Carson's late-night show more times than any other comic. He was a very popular entertainer on the cabaret circuit and featured in cult 2005 movie The Aristocrats.
He missed out on major TV fame in the mid-1970s when his Shampoo spin-off series, Snip,was pulled from the air before its first episode after network bosses discovered one of his its characters was gay. The show did screen in Australia and became an instant hit - but only ran for seven episodes.
Brenner was married to actress Elizabeth Slater and ice skater Tai Babilonia.
Kim Kardashian's mum Kris Jenner will prove there are no hard feelings between her and estranged husband Bruce when she presents him with a major sports award next week (11Nov13). The couple confirmed reports of a split last month (Oct13), but Kris has maintained that she hopes to stay friends with the former Olympian, who is Kim and sisters Khloe and Kourtney's stepfather.
And to prove her point, she'll present him with a Legendary Athletes Award at Monday's (11Nov13) All Sports Film Festival in Los Angeles.
The event will mark the couple's first public outing together since the news of the split was announced.
Jenner's fellow Olympians Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner will also receive the 2013 Legendary Athletes Awards at the event.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has ended speculation that her stepfather has been cut out of the family by revealing she has asked him to walk her down the aisle and give her away to rapper fiance Kanye West when they wed next summer (13).
