Garry Shandling was a popular American standup comedian with average body measurements. His body was quite toned as the actor, comic and director was the fan of sports and trained regularly several times per week. That’s why the sudden heart attack, which caused his death, was surprising for many people, who knew Garry.
Garry Shandling was born in Chicago. Later his parents moved to Tucson, Arizona because of Gary’s brother illness. But his sibling passed away at the age of 10 in spite of his parents’ attempts to help a boy. Garry Shandling studied electrical engineering and then tried his hand as a comedian writer after his meeting with a comic George Carlin. Encouraged by Carlin, Garry used to develop his talent of a comedian and then started to perform on the stage, having been recovered from a car accident. He hosted two popular comedy shows, “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show” (four seasons) and “Larry Sanders Show” (six seasons, and he got numerous awards for it). Garry Shandling used to host Grammy Awards ceremony.
Garry Shandling personal life was always a mystery to his fans. He had no children and had never been married. The comedian was a great fan of box and used to arrange box workouts 4 times per week. He was also a basketball fan and had a basketball court at home. Garry Shandling was also rumored to be the lover of yoga. So, he was in great shape. That’s why his sudden death was shocking for his friends.
Garry met his friends several days before his death. His friends didn’t notice any signs of heart disease then. But the day before death Garry consulted a doctor and complained on the pain in his chest. The doctor advised him to stay at home and go to a hospital if his pain didn’t disappear in a day. But the next day in the morning Garry Shandling died from a massive heart attack. He lost his mind, while phoning 911 and asking for a help. Paramedics broke the door into his house and found the star unconscious on the floor. He was still alive but died on the way to a hospital.
As his fans remembered later, Garry complained on his hyper-parathyroid gland. Probably, that health disorder caused his heart attack, although Garry wasn’t diagnosed any heart illness and was considered as a healthy athletic person.
So, take care of your health in time!
