Bob Einstein came into the limelight when he was cast as Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm. HBO liked Larry David’s sitcom so much that it’s been on the air for nine seasons. A tenth season could be in the works, but who exactly is the guy who was cast to deliver such deadpan humor? Even before his time on the show, he had an interesting career, and he has a well-known brother too.
The late actor passed away in 2017, but before that, he portrayed Larry’s Jewish widowed father. He usually tends to make mistakes that Larry calls him out on. During his comedic career, Berman was awarded three gold records and he won the first Grammy Award for a spoken comedy recording in 1959.
In addition to that, the Chicago native taught humor writing at the University of Southern California for more than 20 years.
