In a statement, HBO praised Lewis’ comedic talent, calling him a “genius” and expressing their condolences to his family, friends, and fans. Lewis’ wife, Joyce Lapinsky, also thanked everyone for their support and requested privacy during this difficult time.

Richard Lewis will always be remembered for his unparalleled humor and contributions to the entertainment industry.
