barney fife rip

Example

don knotts, known to millions as dep. barney fife of mayberry, and to their children as jack, janet and chrissy's landlord mr. furley, died at age 81. asspress:

knotts began his show biz career even before he graduated from high school, performing as a ventriloquist at local clubs and churches. he majored in speech at west virginia university, then took off for the big city.

"i went to new york cold. on a $100 bill. bummed a ride," he recalled in a visit to his hometown of morgantown, where city officials renamed a street for him in 1998.

within six months, knotts had taken took a job on a radio western called "bobby benson and the b-bar-b riders," playing a wisecracking, know-it-all handyman. he stayed with it for five years, then came his series tv debut on "the steve allen show."

we remember him fondly as one of steve allen's troupe of misfits, and in our opinion, he did his best comedic work on that early program.

mr. knotts passed away of pulminary and respiratory complications at cedar sinai. the world will be a less funny place for the loss.
