Bob Einstein, Marty Funkhouser on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' Dead at 76


Crushed to hear about the passing of Bob Einstein, who hilariously played Marty Funkhouser, Larry David's raspy-voiced best "friend" on "Curb Your Enthusiasm." He had been battling cancer and was 76. RIP, Little Orphan Marty.


Had no idea he was Albert Brooks's older brother until reading his obituary. Apparently Albert decided to change his actual last name for some reason ... 


P.S.


Reps for Olivia Newton-John -- who is battling another recurrence of cancer -- adamantly deny tabloid reports that she's at "death's door." 

P.S.


He was also great on David Letterman (et al.) as the hapless stuntman Super Dave Osborne!

don't cha just love it when naked men wrastle each other in front of the fireplace until they're all hot and sweaty?

What? What?

It is always sad to hear of a person of note passing.
