The comedy world took a major hit this week.
David A. Arnold died from natural causes this week at his home.
He was only 54 years old.
Arnold was really just enjoying having made it to the big time.
While he had success before, his two Netflix comedy specials really put him on the map.
He had just started a national tour titled “Pace Ya Self.”
He broke into the business in 1997 as well as working with some of the bigger names in comedy over the years.
His first Netflix special was in 2020 called, “David A. Arnold: Fat Ballerina,” followed in 2022 by “It Ain’t for the Weak.”
Arnold had only performed three shows of his national tour at the time of his death.
His family stated, “It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of our husband, father, brother and friend, David A. Arnold.
“David passed away peacefully today in his home and doctors have ruled the cause of death due to natural causes.
“Please keep our family in prayer and respect our privacy at this time, as we are all shocked and devastated by this loss.”
