Mar 25, 2016  •  Post A Comment

In an ominously titled episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” just two months ago — “It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive” — Shandling talked about funeral arrangements, his fading health and the possibility of dying young.

Shandling died suddenly Thursday of a massive heart attack, as we reported previously.

The New York Daily News notes that Shandling said in the episode, which came out Jan. 20: “What I want at my funeral is an actual boxing referee to do a count, and at 5 just wave it off and say, ‘He’s not getting up.’”

Shandling also joked about his health, saying: “I had a hyper-parathyroid gland that was undiagnosed because the symptoms mirror the exact same symptoms that an older Jewish man would have. You know, lethargic; you get puffy, you get heavy. You kind of realize you want a divorce even though you’re not married.”
