Super Dave Osborne Creator & “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Star Bob Einstein Dead at 76.

2019 is off to a rough start. On a day where we’d already lost legendary wrestling broadcaster, “Mean Gene” Okerlund, some more sad news to pass along as Bob Einstein, creator of the comedic stuntman Super Dave Osborne, and Larry David’s pal “Marty Funkhouser” on Curb Your Enthusiasm, has passed away Wednesday at the age of 76 after a bout with cancer.

Einstein was already an Emmy-winning television writer before achieving onscreen stardom as an actor. As Super Dave, he had his own Showtime series in the late ’80s and early ’90s that’s seen as a forerunner to Jackass.

After playing college basketball at Chapman University, the 6’4″ Einstein was discovered by Tom Smothers of Smothers Brothers fame, and is the older brother of actor and director Albert Brooks.
