Stand-up comic Robert Schimmel passed away in a Phoenix hospital last Saturday after battling with injuries he sustained from a rollover accident last week.
The vehicle accident occurred last August 26 when the vehicle that he was riding on his way to Arizona rolled over multiple times after his daughter, who was driving at the time, swerved hard to avoid an oncoming car.
Aliyah, Schimmel’s daughter, is now in stable condition after the crash.
Schimmel, 60, is known for his raunchy comedy style from his appearances on the Howard Stern Show and his HBO specials.
Despite his raunchy and sometimes offending humor, Schimmel is one of the most beloved comedy personalities in Hollywood.
He has been an inspiration to a lot of people especially after his victory over Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2000.
Before the accident, Schimmel was also waiting to be scheduled for a liver transplant after getting cirrhosis due to a Hepatitis-C infected blood transfusion.
Schimmel is survived by his six children.
Our prayers and condolences go out to his family in their time of grief.
