Richard Lewis Mourns David Brenner

LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- David Brenner's passing has greatly affected the comedy community. He gave Richard Lewis his first true start in comedy by handing him the money he needed to quit his day job and take the stage. Lewis says, "David Brenner was a huge star when I met him and he took me under his wing. To me, historically, he was the godfather of 'hip, observational comedy.' He mentored me from day one. He was family to me in the deepest, most supportive sense. His passing leaves a hole in my life that can never be replaced."
