Sharing a personal story about Charles Grodin, former Letterman writer Caissie posted: “One time backstage at Letterman, I dropped a glass coffee pot & it smashed in a million pieces & I said, ‘Oh my god, I’m such an idiot.’ I did not know Charles Grodin was behind me & he said ‘Lots of people are going to call you an idiot in this business. Don’t be one of ’em!'”

“RIP Charles Grodin,” said comedian Paul F. Tompkins. “My mother’s favorite comedy was Midnight Run but she didn’t like all the cursing & for years searched in vain for a copy of the movie that had the curses removed & now I hope Charles Grodin is with her in heaven explaining to her that they didn’t sell those.”

There are facial expressions that Charles Grodin make in Beethoven that have been imprinted into my brain for decades. The disdain this one man had for his dog was the funniest thing on the planet for a 5 year old Trevor. And it’s still funny. This man never phoned it in. RIP. pic.twitter.com/ES8BS2uRQL
