The sad news is HERE:

Jonathan Winters, the comedic film and TV actor who was huge in the ’70s and ’80s on shows like “Mork and Mindy,” has died at age 87 … TMZ has learned.

Winters died last night of natural causes in Montecito, Calif, around 6:30 p.m., surrounded by friends and family.

Winters’ career began when he won a talent contest, which led to radio gigs and appearances at comedy clubs. He was a staple on the late night TV circuit for decades — he was one of Jack Paar’s favorite guests and a Johnny Carson regular — and recorded several classic comedy albums.

  2. One of his classic movie scenes was that of a truck driver destroying the gas station in Mad Mad World.
