The famous comedian has died.

A statement sent by Tom’s family announced the comedian’s death, stating that the 86-year-old died after fighting cancer.

Dick Smothers stated to the National Comedy Center that Tom was not just a caring elder brother that everyone would desire in their lives, but also a unique creative collaborator.


I am eternally thankful to have shared a lifetime with him, both on and off stage, for more than 60 years. Our relationship was similar to a successful marriage — the longer we were together, the more we grew to love and appreciate each other. We were really fortunate.


Tom was a member of the comic duo known as the Smothers Brothers. His younger sibling, Dick, comprised the remaining portion. They were most famous for their “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.”
