One of the most famous stand-up comedians in the United States, comedian, actor, and writer Richard Lewis has died at the age of 76. In April last year, the artist announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, which is why he is retiring from his career.

The actor died at his home in Los Angeles after a heart attack. This was reported by his biographer Jeff Abraham.

Lewis gained popularity in the United States in the 1980s for his humor. Viewers are familiar with the actor primarily for his roles in the films and TV series Anything But Love, Curb Your Enthusiasm, in the films Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Once Upon a Crime, Drunks, Leaving Las Vegas and others.

In the sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm, the actor and writer starred alongside Larry David, playing a semi-fictionalized version of himself. The 12th season of this show was recently released, which, unfortunately, was the last for Lewis.

Comedy Central named the actor one of the 50 best comedians of all time, and GQ magazine included him in the list of the most influential comedians of the last century.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, 49-year-old Canadian actor Kenneth Mitchell, known for his roles in Star Trek and Marvel films, died after five years of struggling with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. He is survived by his wife and two children.
