Richard Lewis, who appeared alongside Einstein on the HBO hit, posted a tribute on Twitter, praising the late actor's "excruciatingly brilliant!" performance. A brilliantly amusing man.

Einstein played Super Dave, a stuntman far more ambitious than he was agile.

HBO told the site that Einstein was meant to be part of the upcoming tenth season of Curb but was unable to do so due to his health.

Marty Funkhouser will go down as one of the all-time great comedy characters.

In a memorable episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", David invites Funkhouser to a new Palestinian-owned chicken restaurant in Los Angeles. At the time, he was on board The Smithers Brothers Comedy Hour's writing team, along with Steve Martin. But his second Emmy came in 1977, as a producer for Van Dyke and Company. Genius runs deep in the Einstein family.

Yet he told Seinfeld that originally he "hated [show business] so much" because fellow comics were making jokes at his dad's funeral.

But after he did a TV performance on a local cable show for a friend, pretending to install the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he caught Tom Smothers' attention.

Einstein is survived by his wife Roberta and daughter Erin.
