Bob Einstein Career
Einstein got his start writing for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour for which he won an Emmy Award. The writing team also included Steve Martin and Murray Roman. He also appeared on the show as Officer Judy.
Super Dave Osborne
Einstein created the goofy stuntman Super Dave Osborne character, who first made an appearance on The John Byner Comedy Hour, a 1972 TV series. The character would, later on, become a regular on the 1980 television series Bizarre (also hosted by Byner) and was a frequent guest on Late Night with David Letterman. Einstein got his variety show named Super Dave in 1987 running until 1991 on the Global Television Network in Canada (where the show was produced at the network’s Toronto studio) and Showtime in the United States. In 1992, an animated series Super Dave: Daredevil for Hire aired on Fox. Einstein later extended the “Super Dave” franchise by starring in the 2000 movie, The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave.
On 12th November 2009 in an edition of TNA Impact!, he was the booker of the night. He made Super Dave’s Spike Tacular, a four-episode sketch series on Spike TV reprising his Super Dave character, once again engaging in outrageous stunts.
Einstein has starred in other recurring roles such as Marty Funkhouser in Curb Your Enthusiasm and Larry Middleman in the third season of Arrested Development. He was also featured on the Comedy Central show Crank Yankers as obnoxious district selectman Tony Deloge. Einstein was also on The Man Show where he did Century Club with Adam and Jimmy. In Ocean’s Thirteen he played Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon)’s father, Robert “Bobby” Caldwell, a master robber and con artist whose day job is an FBI agent.
Einstein featured on the second season of Anger Management as Charlie Goodson’s very angry neighbor, and his character in the show instantly got an unflattering nickname based on a feminine hygiene product.
Einstein has voiced two characters from The Life & Times of Tim, playing the Elephant Trainer in Tim & the Elephant in the second season, and the bookie in Pray for the Jets in the third.
Einstein was the first comedian to appear twice on Jerry Seinfeld’s Web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
