As TMZ first reported, Schimmel was the passenger in a serious car accident after his daughter, who was driving at the time, swerved to avoid an accident. She's still in the hospital, but we're told she'll be ok.

Schimmel is perhaps best known for his work on "The Howard Stern Show."

I had the pleasure of meeting him during one of his shows in Boston about 10 years ago. Very funny man and a gentleman off stage. RIP, Mr Schimmel

I wish his family the best through these tough times.

Robert was pretty funny and his parents were/are very funny people at least in the skit I saw on Youtube. I am very sorry that he has passed away and I hope that his family can get through.

Robert Schimmel was the funniest comic out there. He'll be sorely missed. His albums are the best, especially "Comes Clean".

I remember seeing Robert many years ago in his first large headlining show in Las Vegas at Ballys Casino. He was so happy, that he greeted every one that was entering the show. He was funny as hell that night. He was one of the greats.
