RIP Mike Nichols; award-winning director

Director Mike Nichols has passed away at age 82. He was a gifted writer and filmmaker, and a true Renaissance Man.

For those who have never seen Nichols' early sketch comedy work with Elaine May, the Wall St. Journal has put up clips of five of them; which are STILL funny, more than 50 years later.

A true master of his craft. Broadway will dim their lights Friday evening. Another bright star is shining in the sky tonight.

RIP Mike.

Amazing talent, both in front of the camera and behind it.
