Terry Beatty 5h · Tracy Newman (Laraine’s sister) reports this sad news: “I just heard (from Lynne Stewart) that John Paragon passed away a short while back. I don’t know any details. For me, this is truly the end of an era. I was very close to him in the late 70s and early 80s. He was the most exciting performer at the Groundlings at that time. Along with Phil Hartman and Paul Reubens – those guys put The Groundlings on the map, really….” No more wishes from Jambi. The Playhouse is dark today. (Thanks to Steven Thompson for the initial info.)

Can’t find any online indication that he’s passed. Not being a huge star, maybe the news just hasn’t gotten around yet.
When I fist met my second wife, I was living in the back of my store (Warp Factor One, but that’s a different story). Every Friday night we rented a motel room so we could watch “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” Saturday morning.
That is a shock, he provided a lot to my world of humor
As a kid I always thought the song Pump Up the Volume by M/A/R/R/S said, “when the jambis go like this.” (It’s really “when the song beats go like this.”)
Aw man. Well, if you’re a fan, the 1983 HBO special “The Paragon of Comedy” is a must. But know that around 23:50 you might find a musical number to be oh so sexist, politically incorrect and damn funny.
