Einstein's brother, comedian Albert Brooks, called his brother "a brilliantly amusing man" in a tweet mourning Einstein's death. "You will be missed forever", Brooks tweeted.

Today the world mourns the loss of Bob Einstein, the actor and comedian who created the daredevil character Super Dave Osborne, starred as Larry Middleman on Arrested Development, and played Marty Funkhauser on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Einstein usually - though not always - emerged from the stunts unscathed, as he used a dummy to simulate various crushings, burnings, buryings and other near-death experiences.

Super Dave Osborne first appeared on The John Byner Comedy Hour in 1972 and made his way through numerous comedy shows in the 1970s.

"Curb" co-star Cheryl Hines also wrote, "♥️ thanks for all of the laughs on Curb Your Enthusiasm. His role on #curbyourenthusiasm was excruciatingly brilliant!

Einstein, whose younger brother is Albert Brooks, began his career in advertising before being discovered by Tom Smothers.

As a producer on Van Dyke and Company, he took home an Emmy in 1977 when the show won outstanding comedy series.
