The Recording Academy® Statement Re: Jonathan Winters
April 13, 2013

“GRAMMY® winner Jonathan Winters was a mercurial comedian who created a range of unique characters that ultimately launched him into the spotlight, and kept him there for more than six decades. A master of improvisation, he drew his material from observing human behavior – as opposed to politics and current events – which set him apart from other comedians of his time and made his comic style more accessible. The entertainment world has lost one of its giants, and his legacy will continue to inspire future comedians for many generations to come. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, his fellow comedians, and all who have ever enjoyed a good laugh thanks to his insightful and offbeat humor.”
