Richard Lewis reveals a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease

NEW YORK — Comedian Richard Lewis is retiring from stand-up after four surgeries and a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.

The 75-year-old “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star, who is known for wearing all black and exploring her neuroses on stage, posted a video Monday to Twitter explaining her various health issues.

“For the past three and a half years, I've had a rough patch,” he said, adding that he had been suffering from back pain, and he had shoulder and hip replacement surgery.

He also got a brain scan because he drags his feet when he walks. Doctors diagnosed him with Parkinson's. “Luckily, I got it at an advanced age, and they said your progress is very slow if at all, and I'm on the right medication, so I'm fine,” he said. “I'm done with stand-up. I just focus on writing and acting.”

Lewis' big screen credits include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “Leaving Las Vegas” and “Vamps” and TV appearances in everything from “7th Heaven” to “George Lopez” and “BoJack Horseman” to “Dr. Katz , Professional Therapist.”
