We are just hearing news of the death of comedian Todd Lynn, who is known for touching the stages of BET’s Comic View, P. Diddy Presents Bad Boy’s Of Comedy, and much more. At this time a statement from his family has not been released on his recent death, but from our sources it seems that Todd’s passing comes from a series of strokes that the comedian encountered early this morning. Fellow comedian TALENT became one of the first to break news of Todd’s health concerns when he tweeted “Prayers to the family of comic Todd Lynn, hospitalized in Mississippi….. Intensive care unit!!!!”. Several hours later, word began to circulate that the comedian had in fact passed away. As we continue to gather more details on his reported death, we leave you with a few moments from Todd including an interview he did last year with Jeffrey Gulian which the comic talked about his comedy legacy after dealing with his battle with cancer.
Update: Laughspin Confirms His Death:
“After suffering two strokes and a heart attack this morning, veteran comedian Todd Lynn has passed away, his manager Roger Paul confirms to Laughspin…..â€œHe had been reaching out to a lot of people and was changing for the better,â€ Paul tells Laughspin. â€œHe always knew how some other people felt about him.â€ Although his health wasnâ€™t entirely strong the last few years, Lynn had been amping up his comedic output, even developing a strong buzz within the industry at last summerâ€™s Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. â€œHe was great,â€ Paul continues. â€œHe was a really smart and warm guy. But a lot of people didnâ€™t get to know him.â€ Lynn even had a PhD in Literature.”
