He has an interesting back story, and he had his funny moments, but my interest stopped in the last few decades, when he evolved into a mean-spirited insult comic, an aggressive bigot and a Trump supporter. I say good riddance.
"Evolved into"? Wasn't he always?
To tell you the truth, CK, I don't know. I am unfamiliar with his early career, and was relying on the obits I read that he was less offensive in his earlier days. And he did some guest spots (and The Simpsons voice work) which I saw and were unremarkable, lending credence to the obit claims that he was not always the human sludge he was toward the end.
"Good riddance to bad rubbish" stands either way.
