Pic of the Day: The late Ken Ober appears in the audience for The Green Room with Paul Provenza

If you watched the debut last night of The Green Room with Paul Provenza on Showtime, then perhaps you saw a few comedians in the audience. And perhaps you wondered, hey, is that guy sitting behind Eddie Izzard in fact Ken Ober, who died in November? Well, yes. Yes it was. The show spotlighted Ober in the closing credits last night, noting: "Thanks for being here."
