Comedians Mourn The Death Of Comedy Store Founder Mitzi Shore

It's a sad, sad day in the world of comedy.

Mitzi Shore, the owner of L.A.'s iconic Comedy Store, died at the age of 87 early Wednesday morning.

Since founding the club in 1972, Mitzi helped launch the careers of countless young comics, including Robin Williams, David Letterman, Richard Pryor, Jim Carrey, and Garry Shandling. She also broke showbiz ground by booking female and non-white comics long before it became widely practiced in the industry.
