Celebrity Deaths: 2012 Famous Deaths List

7/19/12: Comedy writer and "Saturday Night Live" veteran Tom Davis passed away at age 59 after a bout with throat and neck cancer. Davis was one of the first writers on "SNL," and helped define the shows voice. He was one of the creators of the iconic "Coneheads" sketches and wrote Dan Aykroyd's bits impersonating Julia Child. He was perhaps most recognizable from segments featuring Davis and comedy partner Al Franken, who went on to become a Democratic US Senator.

Interesting when actors don't 'get the fact' a large part of their audience is conservative. They go and do this and then -- poof. We're gone. And we're not coming back... Former "Saturday Night Live" star Amy Poehler is going to bat for fellow "SNL" alum and current Minn Sen. Al Franken.
