A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed his death and stated they had received a “medical emergency” call from Shandling’s home earlier on Thursday.

His death has come to a sad shock to many as he appeared healthy and had recently been socializing with Kathy Griffin.

Garry started as a stand-up comedian on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and became famous for his neurotic observational type of humor that saw him sell his written scripts for shows such as “Sanford and Son”, “Welcome Back, Kotter.” and his show “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show”.
