Abe's not dead yet.
Funny thing, ever since Conan started doing those bits with him, it became a source of fame for Abe. Anyway, I produced a broadway show a few years
back and the stars of the show invited him to opening night and I'm sitting in my seat waiting for the show to start and I'm scanning the crowd
looking for friends and family and I turn around and Abe is sitting right behind me. I nudge my wife and whisper "Abe Vigoda is sitting behind us"
to which she shrugged as if to say "who cares, he's not really famous>"
Abe Vigoda leaned forward and said "I'm still alive but I might keel over mid show so the sighting might wind up being really special"
After the show we started talking and he was really nice and funny and when I asked if we could take a picture with he he said no. I said I
understood. He said "no, you don't. you see, when you tell your friends you saw me and I'm not dead, they will not believe that you saw me and
without photos you won't be able to prove I'm alive either"
He's funny as hell
