Garry Shandling


Born - 29 November 1949, Chicago, Illinois, USA
Died - 24 March 2016

Rubber-lipped, big-haired American comedian, a massive TV star in his native country, often with spoofs of other shows. His popularity never really crossed to Britain in the same measure. Films are largely irrelevant to his career, but there were a few, often cameos as himself: The Night We Never Met (1993), Love Affair (1994), Mixed Nuts (1994), Hurlyburly (1998), What Planet Are You From? (2000), Zoolander (2001), Run Ronnie Run (2002), Trust the Man (2005), Iron Man 2 (2010), The Dictator (2012) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), his last. He died from pulmonary thrombosis.
