Bob Einstein, whose career as a comedy writer took a quirky turn into television acting as the hapless daredevil Super Dave Osborne, and later as a friend of Larry David’s on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” died on Wednesday at his home in Indian Wells, Calif. He was 76.

In a panel discussion by “Curb” cast members at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles in 2010, Mr. Einstein recalled that Mr. David had called him two years earlier to tell him what was going to happen in the first episode of the coming season. “He said, ‘Your mother dies,’ and I said, ‘Well, unfortunately, it’s the truth, she just did die.’ And he said, ‘I’m not changing the script,’ and hung up.”
