Garry Shandling Dead at 66

Comedian, actor, writer, and producer Garry Shandling has died at a Los Angeles area hospital today. Shandling, 66, did not appear to be suffering from any illness. A spokesman for the LAPD said they received a 911 call from Shandling’s home on Thursday saying the comedian suffered from a “medical emergency,” Variety reports. He later died at an L.A. hospital.

It was just a few days earlier that Shandling retweeted Kathy Griffin’s photo of himself, Kathy, and Bob Odenkirk, all having a great time.

It is with a heavy heart that we say bye to such a joyous person. Shandling really had a way of lighting up the room and he will be missed dearly. Our condolences to his family and loved ones.
