Garry Shandling, 'Larry Sanders Show' Star, Dies at 66

24 March 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Garry Shandling, the influential stand-up comedian and star of "The Larry Sanders Show," has died. He was 66.

TMZ was the first to report the news on Thursday afternoon, writing that Shandling was rushed to a Los Angeles area hospital earlier that day, where he later died. The cause was an apparent massive heart attack, according to the site, though Shandling's representatives have yet to confirm that report.

Shandling broke new comedy ground with his 1980s series "It's Garry Shandling's Show," which frequently broke the fourth wall and inspired the irreverent style of other, later series, including "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." He followed that up with another influential comedy, "The Larry Sanders Show," which spoofed the behind-the-scenes workings of a late-night talk show, and earned him much critical acclaim, including multiple Emmy nominations for acting, and one win for writing.
