The world just lost another talented comedian. Andy Ritchie has passed away after a battle with a brain tumor. When it was revealed this summer that Ritchie had cancer his comedian friend Brendon Walsh set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for his medical bills.
The news and support for Andy spread far and wide, even getting shout outs from Daniel Tosh on Tosh.0. More than $100K dollars were raised for Andy’s bills. Then today, on Thanksgiving, we were given an update that nobody wanted to hear as Walsh broke the news on Andy’s page that he had lost his battle with cancer.
*NO MORE DONATIONS PLEASE*
Andy passed away this afternoon at Hollywood Presbyterian. His mom, Ruby, and his brother Simon were all with him.
I don’t know what else to say. He was a great guy. Listen to his album on Spotify or download it or whatever. He’s hilarious.
Thanks for everything you all did to help. Have a good Thanksgiving.
