Richard Jeni

Richard John Colangelo, aka Richard Jeni, was a stand-up comedian and actor. Famed for his appearance on Showtime and The Tonight Show (Johnny Carson) and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he was voted Comedy USA’s Best Nightclub Comedian in 1989.

On March 10, 2007, and after battling schizophrenia for several years, Mr. Jeni ended his life in his bedroom by taking a .45 caliber load to the head just a few minutes after his girlfriend went to the kitchen to cook breakfast. Despite the tragic circumstances surrounding his passing, we are certain that this Dick knows how to bang a hole with his head.
