Neil Simon Broadway Master Of Comedy Dies At 91

US playwright Neil Simon, a master of comedy whose laugh-filled hits such as The Odd Couple and Barefoot in the Park dominated Broadway for decades, has died. He was 91

Simon died early on Sunday (local time) of complications from pneumonia at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, said Bill Evans, a longtime friend and spokesman for Shubert Organisation theatres.

Simon was admitted to hospital a few days ago and the pneumonia was in his lungs, Mr Evans said, adding that he gave Simon a kidney in 2004.

“It was wonderful to be in his life and for him to be in my life,” he said, calling Simon a major figure in American culture. R.I.P
