How Phil Hartman's Kids Keep Their Dad's Memory Alive


The comedy world was shaken in late May 1998 when the news broke that SNL and Newsradio star Phil Hartman had died — especially given the tragic circumstances.

The murder-suicide was made all the more tragic by the fact that the couple's two children were home that violent night that made them both orphans.
