Bob Einstein RIP

No one lives forever -- except, perhaps, Shirley MacLaine. This is where we ring down the final curtain for Filmdom's finest.

Bob Einstein RIP

Postby Richard M Roberts » Wed Jan 02, 2019 10:55 pm

Bob "Super Dave Osborne" Einstein has passed away today at the age of 77. He was a member of a very funny family, that includes younger brother Albert (Brooks) Einstein and father Harry Einstein (aka Parkyakarkus). Bob was also a great comedy writer, who worked on the CBS Smothers Brother Comedy Hour, and the short-lived, but underrated Dixck Ven Dyke variety show VAN DYKE AND COMPANY.

But his greatest fame was playing Super Dave Osborne, a great, deadpan take-off on Evil Knievel. Here's one of his TONIGHT SHOW WITH JOHNNY CARSON appearances:

Rest in Peace Bob.
