Standup comedian Robert Schimmel, who beat cancer, has died from injuries he suffered in a recent car incident. He was 60. Ten years ago, Fox picked up a Schimmel-fronted sitcom to series but the comedian was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which led to the project ultimately getting scrapped by the network. Schimmel, who was a frequent guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and on Howard Stern’s radio show, was a passenger in a car driven by his 19-year-old daughter on Aug. 26 when they two got in an accident. The daughter, Aliyah Schimmel, is hospitalized in stable condition.
