I note with sadness the passing of Jerry Belson. This talented, funny man teamed with Gary Marshall to write and create a myriad of sitcoms, including “Dick Van Dyke” and “The Odd Couple”. 12 Emmy awards to his credit. Marshall described him as the funniest man he ever met. Marshall said, “I remember he’d write some far-out stuff, and I’d say, ‘Jerry, four people are going to get this joke.’ He’d always say, ‘More than enough.’ And that was my mantra; he taught me how to do that.”… What a valuable lesson that is. Rest In Peace, funny man.
