Another sad bit of news. John Boni was a very fine writer, producer, stand-up comic and even an actor. Taking the last of these first, he was a fine musical comedy performer working off-Broadway, most notably with a long-running role in the longer-running show, The Fantasticks.

In television, his credits included Three's Company, Facts of Life, 227, General Hospital, All My Children and he won an Emmy for his work on The Electric Company. You may be especially impressed that he was one of the main writers of Fernwood Tonight and America Tonight — you may remember those shows with Martin Mull and Fred Willard — and that he co-created When Things Were Rotten along with Norman Stiles and Mel Brooks. I also recall some very clever pieces he wrote for National Lampoon in its golden days.

He was not only a talented man, he was a nice man…the kind who was liked by everyone. I hadn't seen him in a while and I missed him. Now I guess I'm going to have to go on missing him forever. It's sad to lose a guy like that.
