As Maggie continued, she wrote that her father “was known for excelling at every creative discipline imaginable and also for doing Red Roof Inn commercials.” 

“He would find that joke funny,” Maggie insisted, something Martin “was never not.”

“My dad will be deeply missed by his wife and daughter, by his friends and coworkers, by fellow artists and comedians and musicians, and—the sign of a truly exceptional person—by many, many dogs. I loved him tremendously.”
