Comedian Bob Einstein has passed away at the age of 76. He was perhaps best known as “Marty Funkhouser” on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and as the titular stuntman on Showtime’s The Super Dave Osborne Show.
The brilliant comedic actor had recently been diagnosed with cancer.
We’ve included social tributes from his brother, Albert Brooks, and from Curb cast members.
Check out clips below of Einstein on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and The Super Dave Osborne Show.
I’m in shock.
I knew him forever. ♥️to his loved ones. His long career is hard to match. His role on #curbyourenthusiasm was excruciatingly brilliant! Our cast and crew will be devastated.
He was so loved. He told me how much he loved LD and Curb. RIP buddy. @HBO pic.twitter.com/G8f5PoffuF
