One of my personal idols passed on yesterday. Shelley Berman was 92.

In his comedic career, Berman won three gold records and he won the first Grammy Award for a spoken comedy recording in 1959. He was perhaps most notable for his role as Larry David’s father on Curb Your Enthusiasm, a role for which he received a 2008 Emmy Award nomination.
