Just a few hours ago, law enforcement officials pronounced comedian, writer, and actor Harris Wittels deceased. Early reports point to a drug overdose as the cause of death.
Harris was prolific in his comedy with anything from Humblebrag, Parks and Recreation, The Sarah Silverman Program, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Eastbound and Down, the band Don’t Stop or We’ll Die (who was scheduled to play at the end of this month at UCB Sunset), and so much more all have his name proudly attached to them.
His passing is incredibly sudden as Wittels performed last night at The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail as well as many of the shows that he wrote for still being active and now is no longer with us.
May he rest in peace and may all of us remember him and his extensive comedic works.
