    City Arts & Lectures Remembering Jonathan Winters The late Jonathan Winters was an icon of American comedy. In the 1960s, Winters recorded many classic comedy albums based on his standup. His influence grew with the dawn of television, where his signature mimicry and wild spontaneity were frequently showcased on "The Steve Allen Show," "The Jack Paar Program" and Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show." In the '70s, he appeared as Mork's infant son Mearth on "Mork and Mindy" with Robin Williams. Williams has called Winters his mentor and greatest influence. Winters acted in many movies and cartoons, including roles in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "The Russians Are Coming!" and "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle." In addition to his pioneering work as a performer, Winters wrote the bestselling short story collection "Winters Tales" and was a passionate painter. He passed away on April 11, 2013. The program rebroadcasts a conversation with Winters, which took place at the Herbst Theatre on May 30, 2007.
