The Los Angeles Times covered Richard Jeni’s memorial at the Laugh Factory last weekend. Read its report. I was friends with his girlfriend, TV reporter and meteorologist Amy Murphy (we worked together in Phoenix, and the first thing she said to me when she found out I was a comedian was how much she loved Richard Jeni — she hadn’t hooked up with him yet) and so my heart goes out to her and to Jeni’s family.
