R.I.P. My dear brother Bob Einstein. A great brother, father and husband. A brilliantly funny man. You will be missed forever.

I'm so sorry you have lost your brother. I lost mine too and I understand the pain. It's as though your childhood is gone. ?

I’m in shock.
I knew him forever. ♥️to his loved ones. His long career is hard to match. His role on #curbyourenthusiasm was excruciatingly brilliant! Our cast and crew will be devastated.
He was so loved. He told me how much he loved LD and Curb. RIP buddy. @HBO pic.twitter.com/G8f5PoffuF

Two weeks ago, @DavidLevien and I standing around on set with @kevinpollak telling Bob Einstein jokes. We said that night, and have said many times, that nobody made us laugh harder than Bob Einstein. He was the best joke teller of all time. Working with him on o13 was an honor.

Bob Einstein's career in weirdo comedy did not begin with 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' Watch. In this clip, none other than country music star Glen Campbell, wearing his Wichita Lineman album cover outfit, interviews Barry The Mechanic (played by Bob). https://t.co/ohC4Gk858Q pic.twitter.com/cnwgWKc09m

RIP, Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave Osborne, aka Marty Funkhouser. Marty didn't appear on Curb until s4, yet Einstein and Larry David had a rapport that made it seem like he'd been there forever. https://t.co/KKF6UE8xPz
