Comic and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' regular Richard Lewis diagnosed with Parkinson's

  • Comic actor Richard Lewis, a longtime regular on the HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," says he is under a doctor's care for Parkinson's disease but that despite giving up his standup act "everything is cool" as he focuses on writing and acting. Lewis, 75, disclosed his diagnosis in a brief video posted to Twitter on Sunday, saying he learned he had Parkinson's, a chronic degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, two years ago after he began walking stiffly and shuffling his feet. Lewis said the Parkinson's came on top of a series of shoulder, back and hip surgeries for various orthopedic ailments over the past 3 1/2 years, following an earlier decision to take a break from live performances.
