Sad to see him pass on. He was part of an amazing group of talented comedians who enriched our lives in ways we can’t easily assess. How often did we find ourselves thinking or quoting a line from one of their skits?

Terry was a titan or entertainment. Know what I mean? Say no more...

Absolutely right.

When I taught at the U of Dayton, to show combat scenes, I’d use a clip from “The Messenger,” which was pretty gory. Then I’d tell the kids, “Ok, I know this was gory but I want to show you REAL medieval combat, so, hang on . . .” Then I’d show the “Black Knight” scene. They loved it, and you’d be surprised at how many college kids in 2016 could quote the lines along with the film.
