The DeathList 2019

2017 holds the current record of 17 deaths

Welcome to DeathList 2019. This page shows a list of 50 celebrities which the DeathList committee has chosen for their likelihood to die during 2019. The rules of DeathList are summarised as follows: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list. 2017 saw a record 17 deaths, 2018 could not live up to that standard with 12 deaths. How many can 2019 deliver?    https://deathlist.net/

Dayum, I just watched him in 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,' over the holidays.

RIP Super Dave

Side note: His father Harry Einstein died after roasting Frank Sinatra at the Friar's Club roasts.

Legend has it he just performed the greatest set ever, he walked back to his chair with a standing ovation, sat in his chair then slumped over on Milton Berle shoulder. The massive coronary killed him instantly. Bob was 14 at the time of his father's death.
