‘The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour’ pushed the boundaries of network television in the ’60s — and was canceled before its contract was over.

Tommy Smothers, one half of the boundary-pushing comedy folk duo the Smothers Brothers, has died at age 86. His younger brother Dick Smothers, with whom he delivered eyebrow-raising political satire on network TV in the ‘60s, shared a statement on his brother’s Tuesday (Dec. 26) passing with The Hollywood Reporter and the National Comedy Center

Tom Smother

According to the statement, Tommy Smothers died

“peacefully… at home with his family” following a “recent battle with cancer.”




“Tom was not only the loving older brother that everyone would want in their life, he was a one-of-a-kind creative partner,” Dick Smothers said in the statement. “I am forever grateful to have spent a lifetime together with him, on and off stage, for over 60 years. Our relationship was like a good marriage – the longer we were together, the more we loved and respected one another. We were truly blessed.”
