Legendary comic Richard Lewis died yesterday and I was so saddened to hear the news. He was beloved by all, including me. I had just watched Season 13, Episode 3 of Curb Your Enthusiasm when I heard the news. In the episode, Richard plays a fictionalized version of himself and he and Larry David, creator of Seinfeld, were arguing about who was going to live longer. It’s a really funny (and now bittersweet) scene, which you can watch below.

Remarkably, Richard and Larry have known each other since they were kids. Larry touched upon this fact in his statement on Richard Lewis’ death: “Richard and I were born three days apart in the same hospital and for most of my life he’s been like a brother to me. He had that rare combination of being the funniest person and also the sweetest. But today he made me sob and for that, I’ll never forgive him.”

If you’ve never watched Curb Your Enthusiasm, I highly recommend you do; it’s hilarious. I’ve been meaning to write a post on some of the show’s funniest travel scenes so I’m including them below. Richard isn’t in these scenes but if you’re like me, you will probably relate to some of Larry’s awkward and bizarre thoughts.
