Oh, wow. Garry Shandling’s final appearance on his friend Jerry Seinfeld’s web show ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’ will absolutely give you goosebumps. The pair hauntingly discuss their own mortality plus Garry revealed he had a health issue. See for yourself, here.
This will totally break your heart. Garry Shandling revealed a major health issue to his friend Jerry Seinfeld on his show before passing away suddenly at age 66 on Mar. 24. The duo talk about other famous deaths, why it’s good to die in your 60’s, and make light of an illness that may have taken Garry too soon. We have the shocking video, right here.
Episode 4 from the 7th season of Jerry’s hilarious web show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee made the hairs on our neck stand up, because it totally foreshadows Garry’s stunning death from a massive heart attack on Mar. 24. Even the title of the episode is ironically It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive. Shivers.
The craziest part is that in the episode, which aired just two months before Garry’s untimely death, he reveals that he’s got a major health problem. “So it turns out I had a hyper parathyroid gland that was undiagnosed because the symptoms mirror the exact same symptoms an older Jewish man would have, which is lethargic, you get puffy, you get heavy, you think you kind of want a divorce but you’re married.” Garry was amazing for being able to turn even something serious like an illness into a joke, but this time it kind of creeped us out.
On top of that, the pair talks about another amazing comic lost way too soon: Robin Williams, who died at age 63 of suicide. After expressing how stunned and heartbroken they were, Jerry says that the 60’s are the best time to die. “You have to die in your 60’s for them to say he was young,” he explains. Garry died at age 66.
