A comedian and TV producer who was one of the co-creators of the comedy series “Rel” has died. People magazine reports that Kevin Barnett died unexpectedly while vacationing in Mexico. He was 32.

Barnett’s death was confirmed in a tweet this morning by Last Podcast Network, where Barnett co-hosted the weekly podcast “Roundtable of Gentlemen.”

The LPN tweet reads:

“Dear Last Podcast family,

“It’s with a heavy heart we inform you of the passing of Kevin Barnett. The joy he brought to our lives is the greatest gift we have ever received. Remind your friends you love them because you never know when you’ll see them again. We love you KB.”

No cause of death was announced.

Barnett was a co-creator of the Fox series “Rel” along with Lil Rel Howery and Josh Rabinowitz. The show, which starred Howery along with Jordan L. Jones, Jessica Moore and Sinbad, premiered last September on Fox.

Barnett also was a producer on “Unhitched” and a consulting producer and writer on “The Carmichael Show.”

In his final social media post, Barnett posted a photo of himself in Mexico three days ago on Instagram — you can see that post below …
