Thinking About Otto Petersen One Year After His Death

It's been one year since we learned that Otto Petersen, of the famed comedy ventriloquism duo Otto and George, passed away. Not only was Otto a tremendous comedian, but there was so much more to him even beyond his act that might not be apparent to fans who went to see his comedy.

Nine Great Artists Share Their Memories of Nine Incredible Comedic Talents

2014 was a year where comedy news dominated the headlines regularly, and that was in no small part because we lost so many comedy legends this year. The empty spaces at the comedy dias this year are large and unfillable. Literal legends, people who created modern comedy who we were lucky enough to have in our midst just a year ago like Joan Rivers, Sid Ceaser, David Brenner, Mike Nichols and Robin Williams, are no longer here. We also lost younger brilliant comics who should have had decades ahead of them, like John Pinette, Otto Petersen, and Tim Wilson. All eight of these tremendous talents have left behind great work for this generation and future generations to enjoy for years to come.

Otto Petersen: These Comedians Changed My Life

The great Otto Petersen passed away today. Otto was an outstanding comedian, and on a personal note, he was becoming a regular contributor to the interrobang. Earlier this year he reached out to us asking to write stories for us, and submitted two before he passed away. The first, about his favorite movies, was published on March 17, 2014, “Otto Petersen Picks 1974 as the Greatest Year in Film.” The second, is this one. Thanks Otto, we were honored to work with you, if only briefly.
