Scott Kennedy, standup comic

by Brian McKim & Traci Skene on March 15th, 2013

We woke up this morning to the news that Scott Kennedy passed away last night.  We didn’t know Kennedy, but, judging from the testimonials on the social media, he was a beloved member of the standup community.  Kennedy was most notable for having entertained U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, doing, by some estimates, as many as 60 tours over the last 12 years.

From U.S. Army Colonel John Rogers’ Facebook status update:

I awakened this morning to heartbreaking news… A great personal friend and a tremendous friend to the troops, Scott Kennedy, died in his sleep last night. A big, warm-hearted, exceptionally funny man who has dedicated much of the past 12 years to entertaining the troops in theater, Scott was loved and admired by all who knew him.
I am proud to have known you, my friend… Rest in peace. :(
