Remembering him through his work
David Arnold was an Emmy award-winning writer and comedian, as well as a best-selling author and accomplished songwriter. His humor never went out of style, as he was an early pioneer in standup comedy and one of the most well-known comics in the country. He is often credited with bringing the alternative style of comedy to national prominence during his time on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ He died Monday night in New York City, where he lived with his wife Kathy Sloane since 2006.
How he inspired our generation
David was a kind-hearted and open human being who encouraged people to be themselves and laugh about life. He brought joy and levity to all he came into contact with, even in the most somber moments of his own life–dealing with depression, addiction, divorce and grieving the loss of his partner Don Ward just last year. There is no question David’s best attribute was his sense of humor, which he used to bring laughter back into people’s lives when they needed it most.
David died at just 54 years old but will be remembered by many for years to come as one of the funniest men in America–with all these talents still unfulfilled!
