RIP Bob Hope

Bob Hope dead at 100

Bob Hope, whose quick wit, daring personality and ski-sloped nose identified him as an icon of 20th-century entertainment, has died. He was 100. Known as "Mr. Entertainment" or "the King of Comedy," Hope appeared in more than 75 films, starred in more than 475 TV programs and 1,000-plus radio programs. He also toured tirelessly for the U.S. armed forces.

I just saw this and was going to post it. It's very sad. But few of us ever had or will have such a good life. RIP and enjoy paradise for all eternity.

Very sad. He brought something to generations that today's generation will never fully understand.

I just heard about this. Very sad. I remember watching his old "Road" movies with Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. And we used to sit around the tape player when I was a kid growing up in the jungle and listen to old radio broadcast recordings. So in a way, I feel like I grew up with his entertainment.

I actually saw Bob Hope do stand up in 1980, I believe. I was on a trip to SF with my family for a convention my Dad was attending and one night Bob Hope was doing a show for the convention. My sister and I went.

100 is a very long life, and his was a full one as well...RIP Bob,

This is really sad. Bob Hope was one of my favorite comedians. He was *so* funny. RIP.
