Comic Joey Bishop of the 'Rat Pack' Is Dead

Comedian Joey Bishop was 89 years old. His publicist and longtime friend says he died last night of multiple causes at his home in Newport Beach, California.

Bishop found success in nightclubs and movies, and on T-V, where the stone-faced comic hosted a late-night talk show.

In addition to Sinatra, the Rat Pack included Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin and Peter Lawford.
