The Super Bob Einstein Movie

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO

Whether you knew him as the argumentative family-oriented Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, or out-there stuntman Super Dave Osborne — or even as the robotic surrogate on Arrested Development — you knew that Bob Einstein was proudly marching to the beat of his own bizarrro drummer. This doc celebrates his unlikely Hollywood career and packs testimonials from an impressive roster of comedians, including Steve Martin, David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Larry David, his brother Albert Brooks, and J.B. Smoove. "It was Bob's world," marvels Susie Essman, "we're only living in it." Why not spend 75 minutes on Planet Bob? —Dan Snierson
