Comedian and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Richard Lewis dies at the age of 76.

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Richard Lewis has died at the age of 76 at his home in Los Angeles.

The comedian, who had been suffering from Parkinson's Disease for the last three years, had a fatal heart attack on Tuesday night.

"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," Curb creator Larry David said. "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."

Co-star Cheryl Hines said: "Through the years I learned who Richard really was and the gifts he gave,. Yes, he was the comedian I fell in love with, but he was also one of the most loving people I know.

"He would take time to tell the people he loved what they meant to him - especially in recent years. In between takes on Curb, he would tell me how special I was to him and how much he loved me. To be loved by Richard Lewis. A true gift."

Lewis, who can currently be seen in the 12th and final season of Curb, is survived by wife Joyce Lapinsky.
