    Incredible wit. I loved him as Super Dave on Bizarre. RIP Bob.

    I loved the Super Dave character.

    Bob Einstein was Albert Brooks' brother.

    Fun fact: Albert's birth certificate actually does say Albert Einstein. ("Your last name is Einstein, and we're gonna name you Albert. No pressure, kid.")

    RIP
    Sincerely yours,
    Upset

    Well, they say it goes in three's. Bob Einstein, Daryl Dragon and Gene Okerlund ,all born in 1942 within months of each other, and all pass on the same day at 76.

    3 in the same day is unusual, though, IIRC. Weird that they were all born the same year, too. Thanks for that info!

    This is maybe Super Dave's most famous stunt:

    Oh, man! I didn't know that this was who this was! I remember hearing of him back when Robbie Knievel successfully conquered the Caesar's Palace fountains in 1989.
