“He was also known for doing (red-roof advertisements) in every creative discipline imaginable,” Maggie Mull said in a Social Media site (Instagram) post. “He would find this joke funny. He was never funny. My father was loved by his wife and daughter, by his friends and co-workers, by fellow artists and comedians and musicians, and by many dogs—really.

“Martin was the greatest,” “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig said at X . “So funny, so talented, such a nice guy he was. Was lucky enough to be on the Jackie Thomas show with him and every moment was precious with a legend. Fernwood was such an influence in my life tonight.”
