Bob Einstein, a.k.a. Super Dave Osborne and Larry David Pal, Dies at 76

Sway Einstein, whose profession as a satire essayist brought an idiosyncratic transform into TV going about as the hapless adrenaline junkie Super Dave Osborne, and later as a companion of Larry David's on "Control Your Enthusiasm," kicked the bucket on Wednesday at his home in Indian Wells, Calif. He was 76.

His director, Lee Kernis, said the reason was a malignancy.

Mr. Einstein played Marty Funkhouser, Mr. David's buddy and infrequent for, on "Check Your Enthusiasm," the long-running fictionalized form of Mr. David's life on HBO. Mr. Einstein's wellbeing blocked him from taking a shot at the arrangement's tenth season, which is currently underway.

"Never have I seen a performing artist appreciate a job the manner in which Bob did playing Marty Funkhouser on 'Control,' " Mr. David said in an announcement. He included, "There was nobody like him, as he let us know over and over."

In a board talk by "Control" cast individuals at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles in 2010, Mr. Einstein reviewed that Mr. David had called him two years sooner to disclose to him what would occur in the first scene of the coming season. "He stated, 'Your mom passes on,' and I stated, 'Well, shockingly, it's the reality, she simply beyond words.' he stated, 'I'm not changing the content,' and hung up."

Not at all like Marty Funkhouser, Super Dave was something of an animation character — a stupid, vacant farce of swagger-filled doubles like Evel Knievel. Wearing a generally white jumpsuit and crash cap, Super Dave endeavored risky tricks that steadily tumbled and seemed to cause him incredible substantial damage.

"I bargain out of a reality that isn't genuine," Mr. Einstein said in a meeting with The New York Times in 1995. "I'm sad. I don't comprehend what that implies. I don't generally recognize what I do."

Mr. Einstein had been on the composition staff of "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" in the late 1960s before he originally showed up like Super Dave, on a scene of "The John Byner Comedy Hour" on CBS in 1972.

The character returned during the 1980s in "Peculiar," another TV arrangement facilitated by Mr. Byner, and proceeded through different other TV manifestations, including "Super Dave's Vegas Spectacular" in 1995 and "Super Dave's Spiketacular" in 2009. He likewise showed up every now and again on late-night syndicated programs.

His more youthful sibling, Albert, in the end, changed his name to Brooks and turned into a prestigious comic and producer; a second sibling, Cliff, is a promoting official.

"A splendidly entertaining man," Mr. Streams composed on Twitter. "You will be remembered fondly until the end of time."

Mr. Einstein reviewed his childhood as a skirmish of minds among him, his dad and Albert.

"It was a clever method to grow up," he disclosed to The Times. "There weren't an excess of finish suppers in that house. On the off chance that you get that sort of model, you're either going to make your life humor, or you will dismiss all that no doubt about it."

His dad kicked the bucket in 1958 after performing at a Friars Club broil for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

Mr. Einstein did not go into the entertainment biz promptly. In the wake of moving on from Chapman College in California, where he played ball, he joined a publicizing organization, where he composed and coordinated TV advertisements. That drove him to an appearance on a syndicated program in Los Angeles, where he was given in an outline a role as the man in charge of putting the stars in the walkway on Hollywood Boulevard — an assignment that made him powerless to remuneration.

Mr. Einstein's dry conveyance aroused the enthusiasm of Tom Smothers, who offered him a vocation on the arrangement that he facilitated with his sibling, Dick. Mr. Einstein composed for "The Summer Brothers Smothers Show" in 1968 and "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" from 1968 to 1969. While there, he at times played Officer Judy, an honest, humorless cop who once rode a cruiser in front of an audience to give Liberace a ticket. "Do you realize how quick you were playing?" Mr. Einstein inquired.

All through the 1970s, he composed for shows facilitated by Pat Paulsen, Ken Berry, Sonny and Cher, the Hudson Brothers and Lola Falana. He likewise showed up on TV and incidentally in motion pictures, including as a donning merchandise businessperson in his sibling Albert's film "Present-day Romance" (1981).

Mr. Einstein won two Emmy Awards, the first in 1969 for composing for "The Smothers Brothers" (on a staff that likewise included Steve Martin and Mason Williams) and the second in 1977 for remarkable parody assortment arrangement, for "Van Dyke and Company," a temporary arrangement featuring Dick Van Dyke.

He likewise won a CableAce Award in 1992 as the star of the Showtime arrangement "Super Dave."

He is made due by his better half, Roberta; his little girl, Erin Einstein Dale; two grandkids; and his siblings.

Mr. Einstein said that he didn't initially observe Super Dave as a job he would play, on and off, for a large portion of his vocation. Without a doubt, he and the essayist and maker Allan Blye, who helped him make the character, tried out different performers for the part.

"There was never an arrangement," Mr. Einstein revealed to The Times. "We needed to have a not too bad individual who was loaded up with certainty for positively no reason. We had no clue we'd follow 10 seconds, significantly less 10 years."
