Joey Bishop, the comic who hung and swung with the legendary Rat Pack, died at his Newport Beach home. His death was announced by publicist Warren Cowan.

He was the group’s last surviving member. Peter Lawford died in 1984, Sammy Davis Jr. in 1990, Dean Martin in 1995, and Frank Sinatra in 1998.

Tabloid Baby has some cool pix.

And the Orange County Register has some final words — both from the man, and his rabbi.
