Comedy writer Tom Davis passed away on Thursday of cancer of the tonsils. He was 59.
Davis was best known for being one half of Franken & Davis. The Franken in question, of course, now sits in the Senate. Davis & Franken were school mates in Minnesota and were discovered by Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels and hired the duo as writers for the fledgling NBC show.
Davis & Franken occasionally appeared on air as a comedy duo. However, Davis also enjoyed a fruitful collaboration with Dan Aykroyd co-writing “The Coneheads” skits as well as a skit where poor Julia Child cut the dickens out of her finger.
After an absence of a decade, Davis returned to SNL in the early 1990s where his most notable skit was “The Continental” with frequent guest host Christopher Walken.
Here’s an interview Davis conducted a couple of years back.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
