Garry Shandling - RIP

Legendary comedian Garry Shandling has died suddenly. He was 66 years old.

Shandling will forever be known for his two groundbreaking television shows: It's Garry Shandling's Show, a sitcom that routinely played on the artifice of the format and enjoyed breaking the fourth wall, and most notably The Larry Sanders Show, where he mocked the popularity of late shows by standing in as a Johnny Carson-like figure who was often besieged by backstage problems.

He sadly had a very hard time translating his stature in the film world, most infamously with the bomb What Planet Are You From?, but he eventually found his place with the recurring role of Senator Stern in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His utterance of "Hail Hydra" proved to be one of the most popular quotes in recent time.

He will be missed.
