We’re just as shocked as the rest of Hollywood.
As you may have heard, the great Garry Shandling passed away suddenly at the age of 66 on Thursday after being admitted to an El Lay hospital for an unknown reason earlier in the morning.
The Larry Sanders Show star was a Hollywood legend, so it should come as no surprise that his famous friends are devastated by the tragic news.

Garry Shandling is one of the great teachers in my life. He taught me about subtext, honesty, compassion, the best kind of comedy. Much love

Garry Shandling was a very special comedian with a beautifully unpredictable mind. He even voluntarily offered jokes and ideas for Oscars.

Saddened over Garry Shandling. He was a comedy idol of mine. He leaves behind the greatest single-camera comedy of all time. #LarrySanders
