I ran across an Oct. 1949 L.A. newspaper story about the 6 yr. old son of comedian, Parkyerkarkas, hospitalized with Polio. Stewart Robert Einstein, otherwise known as Bob Einstein, Super Dave. I’m glad it turned out OK back then. He left a lasting legacy of smiles.
Your comedy inspired what I do now. Thank you for making me smile and laugh. I’ll always remember you sir.
i first remember seeing bob as superdave on Showtime. i laughed so hard that i almost peed myself, and that was when i was about 19. he had such great reactions and a knack for being so straight faced that it was a blast watching the reactions of the people he was dealing with. he will be missed for sure. one of the best comics in the world, and to think that he originally didnt want to go into show business!
Loved him as Super Dave and Funkhauser on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Never a dull moment…You will be missed!
Loved his Work! Made me happy and enlightened for nearly 50 years. Will be sorely missed! Condolences.
Just showed my 5 and 8 year old a slew of vintage Super skits. Man, that was fun. They “get it” just like I did when I was watching him on Byner’s shows… So fantastic to see Bob on Curb then after all those years. I had not know it was in fact Super Dave until I looked him up. So wonderful to confirm. Finally, with Jerry in C and C, what a great way to highlight such a wonderfully funny and gentle man. .. Rest in peace and may your afterlife suit be made of pure genuine Saskachewan Sealskin… Condolences to the Super Einstein family. Know that especially my 5 year old boy, Kien, is thrilled to watch Dave now any time he can.
I grew up watching Super Dave, and cherish every skit and self destructive stunt that was perfect every time. The confident nature of Super Dave will always be a sweet memory in my 43 year old mind. Thank you, Mr. Einstein !
I spent many nights with my father watching super Dave. Truly funny always. Mr. Epstein you brought much joy to many people and I thank you.
Bob Einstein was truly an inspiration to us all. His career in comedy lasted for over half a century, during that time, he created some of the most memorable and funniest characters of all time. From Super Dave Osborne and the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour to Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development. Bob provided nothing but sheer entertainment to us all. He will be sorely missed. May he Rest In Peace..,
I was at Sebring in March 2019 for the famous endurance race and spray-painted onto the concrete barrier at Turn 10 (a funky place to be sure) were the words: “Super Dave’s Bar & Grill.” Wish I could post a pic. The man is gone, the legend lives on…
Bob defined the difference between being a mere comedian and a comedic genius. He was sui generis: brilliant, unique, hysterically funny.
Remember how much I laughed at Seinfield netflix episode. Great comedian. My condolences to his family.
His two drives for coffee with Seinfeld left me gasping with laughter!
Nothing is better than his Funkhouser character on Curb. Loved him even more as a guest on 2 episodes of Sienfeld’s Comedians in Cars. When he passed, I searched for more of his earlier work on YouTube but sadly there aren’t a lot so those of you who have had the opportunity to have seen him in the 60s and 70s, you are indeed lucky. He and his humor will be missed! RIP.
Watching Super on those Showtime episodes. Laughed so hard I snorted and had tears come out my eyes. Good Lord what a talent. RIP Mr. Einstein.
I thought his character, SD, was a wonderful creation. He seemed to be a guy that would be
a joy to invite over for dinner with my family.
“Super Dave Osborne” was the best. After all these years, watching SD skits again, they are just as funny as the first time I watched them. RIP Mr. Einstein.
There are a few funny people I seek out during life’s tougher moments. Bob was – and will continue to be -one of those people. I can think of no greater gift. Rest In Peace.
Curb will never be the same without Marty Funk. I just watched Palestinian Chicken this morning and laughed my ass of. RIP Bob.
So funny, unique, endearing. He is missed.
I was fortunate enough to meet this man many years ago it only to find that he was (is) as regular and down-to-earth of a guy than anyone you would meet. I sadly just found out about his passing recently I don’t know how that missed me. But what a wonderful wonderful man he was !! His career spans many decades of working constantly, constantly, constantly, and probably with illnesses. When most young people can’t even hold a job more than one week. This man is of a breed and an era that is fading away faster and faster. His surviving family, loved ones and fans can rest assure that he is reunited with his father he lost back in 1958 at such a young age, Mr.Harry Einstein left too soon, and so did Bob ! I Can’t stop watching the 2 comedian in cars episodes we’re he looks healthy happy and enjoying himself, I watch it often, now only to realize he must have been sick and in some form of discomfort while filming those episodes, but it didn’t stop him one bit from bringing joy and laughter one more time to the world. And thanks so much to… Read more »
I’m 28 and from England, so I’m only aware of Bob from Curb. His larger than life character and humour shines through so clearly. Every scene he is in is perfect and hilarious. A great man. Enjoy your onward journey, Bob. All the best to your family and friends.
I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing, he brought such great joy every moment he was present in our lives.
I’m sure it is small consolation, but please know that many hold you and Bob in their thoughts.
Always made me laugh. What a talent
Loved you Super Dave. I remember going to my aunt & uncle’s with my parents sitting by the fire place watching Super Dave with them. Everyone would just be belly laughing. Thanks for the great memories. God bless to you and your family.
He made me laugh so much on “Curb”, I’ll miss him. Prayers for him and his family.
Sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I fell off my chair watching him and Seinfeld on CCHC. The joke about the electric chair got me laughing for ten full minutes straight. Rest in peace, condolences to his family, and thanks for a great career.
My condolences for your loss to both family and friends. There were few funnier or quicker than Bob and a light is missing in this world.
Here’s hoping that someone produces a documentary on this brilliant comedian to share with future generations.
I’ve been a fan since I first saw Officer Judy on The Smothers Brothers Show. I’m sad he’s gone, but his memory will live on in his genius comedic work.
He truly was a gifted human being; I loved watching him on Curb! My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
First of all I want to say to the moderators and of the site if they are still on as well as his family: I apologize for your loss. One of my deepest regrets was never sending him any kind of message or comment before it happened. I first saw him on the Super Dave Osborne Show when I was 3 years old. It was in the mid 90s, long after the show had been cancelled and I was mostly watching reruns. At the time like many kids, I thought the stunts Super Dave did, the ones that went spectacularly wrong, were real. But when I grew up and found out otherwise, I wasn’t disappointed. If anything the dummy work and the effects made it all the more funnier and the fact that you guys probably spent thousands, maybe millions of dollars on elaborate sets, only for them to be destroyed as part of the humour, gave the comedy more heart. Even to this day I couldn’t stop watching the stunts without laughing to tears. That was his gift to the world. And to the man himself wherever he is. Mr. Einstein, Super Dave no one will forget about you… Read more »
Sorry for the los, Bob was a great actor. He will be missed.
The Einstein Family
My condolences for your loss.. what a funny funny man bob was. I am too young for super Dave and the smothers brothers etc.but his time on Curb was priceless… sooo funny. As Larry David said truly a shock. I was really looking forward to seeing him in season 10 but as Larry said he was too sick to film season 10. I have gone back to the curb episodes w Marty in it and just laughed and laughed… in memory of bob, whenever I am in the Curb mood will watch one with him in it. RIP Bob.. gone way too soon and yes still shocked he is gone.
To Bob Einstein’s family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Whenever I saw Bob on TV he made me laugh and made my day brighter. If I happened to be in the other room and heard his voice from the TV I would come running so as not to miss hm. I will not forget him.
Some of my favorite memories with my Dad in the 80s was watching Super Dave and laughing our heads off. I only wish my Dad could have seen Bob play Marty Funkhouser on Curb. He would have loved it.Thank you Bob for all the years of laughs. My heart goes out to Albert and the rest of the Einstein family. May your memories bring you comfort and peace.
Thank you for all the laughs Bob. Super Dave will always remain a strange, hilarious and amazing part of my childhood and beyond. Words are not enough to thank you.
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
