RIP Joey Bishop

We all knew it would happen one day; that day is here...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketThe final member of the Rat Pack is gone to that great Nightclub in the Sky, where the drinks aren't watered, the broads are all game, and every night is opening night.

Joey Bishop wasn't the best-known member of the Rat Pack, especially not these days - Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. all beat him out on that account - but he was at least tied with Peter Lawford for the least known, and where Lawford was just an actor, Bishop was an all-around entertainer. He also gave Regis Philbin his big break, just FYI.

Joey Bishop died at his home in Newport Beach, California; he was 89.
