BERNIE BRILLSTEIN


Bernie Brillstein has passed away at the age of 77. He was the most amazing personal manager in the entertainment busisness that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with. He managed John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Jim Henson, Dabney Coleman, Richard Dreyfuss, Peter Falk, Garry Shandling, Bronson Pinchot, Gilda Radner, Jim Belushi, Gena Davis, Andy Williams, Norm Crosby, Thelma Hopkins, Marsha Mason and George Wendt. His writer clients included Jim Henson, Pat Lee, John Moffitt, Alan Rafkind, Jay Tarses, Dave Thomas, Alan Zweibel, Sheldon Keller, Buzz Kohan, Marty Pasetta, Perry Rosemont, Kenny Solms and Barry Sand.
