Alan King 4/9/04

Alan King comedy legend is no longer among the living. One of the only comedians to actually have his name appear in a Beastie Boys song.

Goodbye Alan King
The Friar’s Club knew you well
You had the grace to tell a joke
Some weren’t funny from what I could tell
Always saw you in a tux
You crawled out of New York City
Telling your jokes not knowing when to stop
Became a comedy legend
Can you explain the career of Carrot Top?

And it seemed to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Always telling jokes
Like so many others did
And I really never knew you
I know that Johnny Carson did
Your candle burned out
Long before you jokes ever did
