Jimmy Kimmel Pays Emotional Tribute to the Hilarious Fred Willard

Few people made Jimmy Kimmel laugh harder than Fred Willard. So on Monday night, the late-night host dedicated his entire show to the legendary comedic actor, who died over the weekend at 86.

“Tonight’s show will be a special show,” he began. “It will be a sad show. But we will also laugh a lot as we pay tribute to a lovely and genuinely funny man named Fred Willard.”

The host told viewers that as a kid growing up in Las Vegas, one of his favorite shows was Fernwood 2 Night, in which Willard played “oblivious second banana” to his longtime comedy partner Martin Mull. “I loved this show,” he said. “This was one of those shows that probably 80% of the people watching it didn’t get. Maybe 90%. It was definitely my kind of show.”
