"Another giant talent taken too soon," added Michael Price, Wilmore's fellow writer on The Simpsons.
"I had the privilege to work alongside Marc Wilmore on three shows (PJs, Simpsons, FIFF) for the better part of the last 23 years and he was THE funniest person in every room. And a wonderful man. He is irreplaceable."
