Among those sharing fond memories and paying tribute to Mahoney were 'Bojack Horseman' actor Paul F. Tompkins, Emily Gordon, Sara Benincasa, and Janet Varney.

"Like everyone, I'm struggling to accept that he's suddenly gone. He was a brilliant editor and a wonderful human being." As reported by Deadline, Mahoney, who was born on March 7, 1977, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts-- kicked off his career with writing credits for 'The Offensive Show' and 'Highway to Oblivion'.
