The world has lost one of the most influential comedic minds of all time. Harold Ramis died today at the age of 69.

Here are just a few of the many contributions Harold made to our lives to make us laugh over the years.


1. Directed Caddyshack

We could have just stopped here. This would have been a big enough contribution to society on it’s own.

2. Co-wrote and acted in Ghostbusters

Most people will remember Harold as Dr. Egon Spengler. A lot of childhood memories were hurt today.

3. Actor & Co-writer in Stripes

Just brilliant writing and maybe the funniest Bill Murray has ever been.

4. Played Seth Rogan’s dad in Knocked Up.

…and was so convincing that I’m still not entirely sure that he wasn’t actually Seth Rogan’s real dad.

5. Directed National Lampoon’s Vacation

Most of the comedies in Hollywood would never exist without this movie.

6. Co-wrote Animal House.

Inspiring college dorm room art for decades to come.



7. Directed Multiplicity

Which has arguably one of the the greatest pizza related scenes in all of film.
