Curb Your Enthusiasm Actor Bob Einstein Has Died Age 76

Einstein, a two-time Emmy Award winner, died on Wednesday.

Einstein was known for his recurring role on Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, where he played Marty Funkhouser.

The news was confirmed when Einstein's brother, actor Albert Brooks, tweeted his condolences.

Einstein also created the character Super Dave Osborne, a stuntman whose stunts would routinely end up never going to plan. The character popped up across all sorts of shows from its inception in the early '70s up until 2013. Einstein's Super Dave even had his own sketch show that ran for five seasons from 1987 to 1991. In 2000 Einstein starred in the straight-to-DVD feature The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave.
