Eric Tunney, Dead at 45

In MemoriumEric Tunney was 45. He was the comedian best known as Ed the Sock's co-host following the departure of Harland Williams and prior to the arrival of Humble Howard Glassman.

I couldn't find any video of Eric Tunney hosting Ed the Sock, but I did find this clip of him hosting Switchback back in 1987. Switchback was a CBC music show that, coincidentally enough, was also hosted by Humble Howard at one point. The Eric Tunney I remember was a little older than this guy and always dressed in a suit and tie.

Although Eric's death has not yet been reported by the MSM, tweets from reliable sources assure me this sad news is true. Watch Eric Tunney's Comedy Now special here.
