Since I grew up in Milwaukee and now live in Pomona, I particularly appreciate these lyrics:
She give me her monkey hand
And a Rambler sedan
I'm the king of Milwaukee
Her juju beads are so nice
She kissed my third cousin twice
I'm the king of Pomona

LAPD is now apologizing for confirming his death. Apparently he's alive.

Latest I saw is that he's off life support thanks to a dnr, but "clinging to life".

Alas, now he has gone into the great wide open.

And that's a winner.

I assumed the false death announcement was to cover up that he had been kidnapped tied up taken away and held for ransom.

May was a nice guy. He personally helped a couple of beginning comics whose career have at least reached mid-level since then when there was nothing in it for him. And he worked hard rooms. It's damned hard for a white comic to work predominantly black comedy clubs and he did it all the time. All that said, the first thing that crossed my mind when I heard that he had died was "Oh my God, what is that casket going to look like?" I know, I'm a bad person.

My first thought was it's only surprising that it wasn't sooner.

I'm not familiar with his work. I've never listened to any of his routines that I recall. I have a vague memory of reading something his ex-wife wrote but no details.
