DAVID BRENNER DEAD



At Caroline's Comedy Club at Times Square, there's sadness along with the laughter tonight - upon word that David Brenner, who appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson more than 150 times, is dead. Brenner, whose jokes about everyday life situations, served as the inspiration for the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Richard Lewis, was 78. He died at home in New York City of cancer. Among those I interviewed at Caroline's, comedian Donnell Rawlings, who, while a great fan of his work, was more in awe of Brenner as a person, because he put his career on the back burner to be a good father.
