Curb Your Enthusiasm fans will best remember actor Bob Einstein from his impact on Larry David's long-running HBO comedy series.
Einstein was 76.
Bob Einstein, a two-time Emmy winner who has recurred on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm since its launch and created the wacky Super Dave Osborne character, died today in Indian Wells, CA. He was 76 and recently had been diagnosed with cancer.
