Best joke teller ever, miss you already!
I will miss Bob. Super Dave always made me laugh. A terrific comedian that left so many joyful memories.
RIP to the greatest Stuntman of all time…I started watching Super Dave back on Bizarre, I still love the show, and am proud to say i have the best of DVD’s (they never get old). I know you are up in heaven doing many stunts for the man upstairs…Thank you for still keeping us laughing for many many years to come.
So clever So funny So deadpan So very missed! R.I.P.
RIP Super Dave! Man, you were funny as hell!
Thank you for cheering me up when I was feeling low, your sense of humour was shared by millions of people and you will continue to make people smile for years to come.
So sorry to hear that Bob died, he was an incredible comedian and one of my favorite scenes was in “Modern Romance” where he played the sports gear salesman!
Thank you Bob for all the laughs
RIP Funkhouser! Curb won’t be the same without you
Dear Super Dave,
thanks for all of the laughs over the years, my brother and I grew up watching you and still quote your lines to each other to this day. Will never forget your most dangerous stunt when you told Mr. T he got his hair cut in a pet shop!
Miss you Bob, so many great characters SD and especially Oceans 13 condolences to your family.
Rip Bob. Thanks for years of laughs. Condolences to the family.
You will be missed in this household. My children and I still laugh uncontrollably at the stunts I watched with my parents as a child. Your time on Curb and interviews with Norm and others have brought a great deal of joy to my life. You truly are one of the greats of all time
Americans can’t usually “take the piss” out of themselves, but Marty/Super/Bob is an absolute exception. As an Aussie fan (i.e-has obsessively searched the depths of the net, to find old clips of Super Dave, and show my ten year old – how cool “I” am) I am sincerely sorry to learn of the passing of a classy, inspirational legend of real comedy.

PS You left your (Blank) in the sink.
❤️ , miss the man.
Good day bob,
I require one “game-worn” jumpsuit and helmet. I wish to impersonate you bob, as such I’ll require an extended crotch to fit my large specimen.
I loved Bob Einstein’s work, especially Funkhouser; he was a genius.
I am very sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing him with us.
My daughter Allyson Turner adored Bob and he did so much for her by making her laugh every time she spoke to him which could have been almost every day!! He will be missed by many. I appreciate the how special his friendship was to het
RIP Super Dave. Damn, you made me laugh so hard. Please say hi to Mike Walden and Fuji Yakahito for me.
I so loved Bob’s brand of humor. He was one of the few comedians that actually made me laugh out loud. I discovered Super Dave many years ago and will continue to watch episodes on-line for years to come. Thank you Super Dave!!!
Absolutely loved Marty Funkhouser and Super Dave, who we got to know here in the UK through the Clive James show. He was my favourite character on Curb and had the best deadpan delivery….my condolences to all his family and friends. Miss you Bob and thanks for the laughs …..
Having no clue that Bob had passed just a few days ago, I was in the middle of watching his last episode with Jerry Seinfeld on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The genius of his whit still has me laughing in tears. So as I ended the episode to rehash through the years of Super Dave and Smother Bros. episodes that I grew up on, I ran across this website with this very difficult news. I have nothing that can ease your pain as far as words go, but have one thing to leave. Thank you for the time that you allowed him to bring smiles to this face. I have had a very difficult life through the years and his bits carried me through some very difficult passages. Thank you for sharing his life with us, and I pray that Bob finds rest, but that his humor carries smiles too many more for years to come.
You were a funny guy. We’ll miss you.
Super Dave never dies ! My stunt hero and life humour guide. RIP from the UK.
He struck a chord with me personally through comedy and sincerity. Hearing his views, conversations, comedy no doubt brightened many people’s lives. Profound even through watching him or listen to his interactions with others; I believe he did transcend age, gender and background with positivity and a warm heart.
So sad to hear that he passed. Very funny guy and tremendous talent. You will be sorely missed
I found Bob through the Lebatard show a few years ago and loved him, but never watched super dave until a couple days ago. It is the funniest show i’ve ever seen. Bob was truly one of a kind, I hope he’s lip-syncing with the big man now.
Just found out that Bob Einstein passed away. Loved “Super Dave Osborne” (my son and I were big fans–I am 75), always made me laugh–always made you feel good. Will miss him. Condolences to his family.
I enjoyed Bob so much on the Bizare show shot
In Toronto in the 80’s. Doing the Super Dave Stuff
Avery funny man
Even Chuck Norris is afraid to perform Super Dave’s stunts!
Thanks to Bob Einstein for making me laugh so many times. Thinking of Super Dave makes me smile inside.
He did things in a deadpan, low key manner. That made him so believable and loveable. That was his genius. He just seemed like a very good person. I hope his family have fond memories.
Thanks for all the laughs Bob. You definitely left your mark.
My condolences to the Einstein family.
Broken hearted. Loved this guy.
So I knew you only as “Super Dave” for the first many years. No matter if it was Carson, Letterman, Kimmel or Conan you always stood out and made me laugh out loud. Only found out a few years ago that your brother is The great Albert Brooks. Besides the obvious reason he would want to change his last name, I figure he thought “hey I can always write and be as funny as Mel Brooks” but I’m never gonna be as funny as my big brother Bob Einstein 😉.. Love to all your Family & Thanks for all the years of entertainment and laughs. May you R.I.P. sir..
Thanks, Bob!!! You were a clever genius and I enjoyed and appreciated your work!!
I was doing an event in BH. I worked peripherally with Bob’s lovely wife Roberta who found out I was a Super Dave fan. She was very sweet to have SD surprise call me and (I can’t believe I did this) told him I wanted to meet him to which he said he’d come by on Thursday. I said “no, that doesn’t work for me. I’m leaving Thursday. Can you make it Tuesday?” HE DID! He was most gracious and had one of his SD watches sent to me with a personal card and I still have both.
I used to wear a Super Dave Crew hat and people asked if I was “really on Super Dave’s Crew”. It was never “Are you on Dave’s crew” The character had genuine power and elicited awe, respect. Loved all of his characters.
What a great guy. I’m so sorry for his family. This year has started sadly.
I was introduced to Bob Einstein through Curb. I loved him. His Super Dave character and just his delivery in general were second to none. The world lost one of its funniest people, but the world was left a funnier place thanks to him. May he rest in piece.
I never appreciated him enough as a kid watching SuperDave. Marty Funkhouser was my favorite and hearing Bob on the radio or a Podcast was so much fun. A life well lived.Thank you.
I loved him as Officer Judy and during the rest of the last century, but lost track of him in the digital age. I am so sad to hear of his passing, but so happy to learn he left “Curbs” and “Coffees” out there waiting for me. He was a delight. RIP
Bob made me laugh many times. He will be greatly missed. I loved everything he did.
I first seen The Super Dave Osborne skits on the show Bizarre with John Byner when I was about 14 years old. I’ve been hooked on Super Dave every since. He was a funny guy. That’s one person I would have loved to have a beer with. R.I.P. You will be missed!
I don’t watch much TV or late night talk shows, and Marty Funkhauser on Curb was the first I became aware of Bob Einstein. I also enjoyed his interview in “When Jews Were Funny”–what a great documentary that is. Anyway, having never before been aware of who Super Dave was, my curiosity took me to YouTube last week. The laughter in our household has not stopped since, and last night we watched some Letterman collections where he “reads” from his books. (I’m having a drink with my son-in-law!) I can’t remember laughing harder or longer, and that sudden punch-in-the-gut kind of laugh Super’s stunts always deliver is unique and therapeutic.
Thank you Bob Einstein for all the joy you brought to the world, you will be missed.
Very sad to hear he’s gone. Thank you for all the laughs for all these years. You were Super.
Super Dave, You were our comedian. For those of us who came up in the 70s and 80s you were who we loved and laughed with together. Our parents don’t quite get you. But, that is OK because some of their old comics we just don’t quite get, either. You were a legend and trailblazer in your own distinctive class. You were the one who mixed comedy with culture so adroitly with all of your characters that people just could not turn you off, even if they did not understand. We all kept watching just to see what you would say left or who you would shoot that devastating stare at without blinking or missing a cue. It is ironic that I came back to you and Super Dave in the last two years, watching the same gags over and over and laughing every single fucking time. I was one of the people on your many Youtube videos making the comment, “We want more Super Dave”. We knew you remained sharp and witty and with it and 100% on all the time from your Curb appearances and if anyone could bring Super Dave back to the air and make it… Read more »
He was the funniest man I ever knew hands down. A true comedians commedian and brilliant writer. He came into this world with an Oy!—and leaves with a gevalt. The world will be dimmer with out you in it my friend.
The world will miss you Super Dave!! You will never be forgotten!! RIP Super Dave!!
I have spent a lot of time this week watching old clips on YouTube of Bob. He was truly one of a kind. His quick comedic mind was perfect on talk shows then podcasts. My condolences to all of his family. I would just like you to know how much joy he gave me in my lifetime.
I grew up watching Bob as Super Dave, especially when he was a guest on late night talk shows. He’s been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and it’s hard to imagine a world without him. His humor was so subtle, I’d find myself laughing at something he did days after I watched it. Although I didn’t know him personally, he always seemed like a very kind person – a kindness that was only matched by his talent. My heart goes out to his family during this difficult time.
Super Dave, loved watching you every second, always hilarious! What a great sense of humor, he was an entertaining and happy influence to so many lives. Thank you Bob Einstein!
Fond memories of laughing at Super Dave Osborne – and still makes me laugh!
Thank you Mr Einstein.
