He was driven to the Johns Hospital in Santa Monica by the Los Angeles Fire Department. Larry was reportedly in good health and his death was sudden and shocking especially when he was on and about the industry just few days ago.
He had retweeted his picture with Kathy Griffins and Bob Odenkirk which Kathy had originally posted on her Twitter. She also expressed her grief on Twitter about Garry’s death and tweeted that she would miss their talks the most. Comedy stars like Fred Willard and Mike Giambra also tweeted their heartfelt grief about Garry’s death.
Shandling was perhaps most famous for his HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. A show he was so dedicated to that he refused some real time TV shows for it. The show was about a fictional character hosting a TV show and it is considered a classic among most comedians.
Many late night show hosts did not register his death in their monologues but Conan O’Brien paid a beautiful tribute to the late comedian. He said that people were going to be hearing a lot of things about Shandling in the next few weeks but he remembered him as a witty, funny and sensitive guy who was great at what he did.
Conan then narrated a story from his own life when he had been down and Garry had helped him get back on the horse again. He narrated the story very elaborately and one can imagine why he was so disturbed about his friend’s death.
Seth Meyers admitted that he had never met the legend but he was remembering him with his guest of the night Olivia Wilde who had gotten to know her husband Jason Sudekis because he had VHS tapes of the Larry Sanders Show.

Seth narrated in his monologue that Garry’s show was the reason Seth had become afraid and wary of hosting a late night show. He added that Garry Shandling was definitely a legend and there was no denying that the world had lost a great person.
