Richard Lewis, a comedian and actor, reportedly revealed on Sunday that he has had Parkinson’s disease for the past three and a half years.
The 75-year-old “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star discussed his recent health issues in a new video he posted on Twitter. These issues lead to a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis.

Despite the diagnosis, Lewis looked to be in excellent spirits as he expressed his love for his wife, their cats, and more in the video posted on Twitter. Lewis’ stand-up career is over, although the cancer has advanced very slowly.
He is instead concentrating on acting and writing.
It seems that he had already decided to cease touring before any of his health issues manifested themselves.
