Best known to today’s viewers for playing the hilarious Marty Funkhouser on Curb, Einstein was a perfect foil for Larry David. He appeared in nearly two dozen episodes of the series dating from 2004 to the most recent season. HBO said he was scheduled to appear in the upcoming 10th season of Curb but was too ill.
Einstein’s younger brother, actor-director Albert Brooks, tweeted today, “R.I.P. My dear brother Bob Einstein. A great brother, father and husband. A brilliantly funny man. You will be missed forever.”
But he might have been foil best to John Byner on the old series "Bizarre."
