First appearing on The John Byner Comedy Hour before becoming a regular character on shows like Van Dyke and Company, Bizarre, and his own show, Super Dave Osborne was an Evel Knievel parody played by longtime comedian Bob Einstein.
Dave always set himself up for incredibly dangerous stunts (which were masterminded by his incomprehensible sidekick, Fuji Hakayito), only to get horribly maimed in the process. It was very obviously a dummy getting hurt, and we all loved his hilarious schtick, so here’s 15 great moments from the living legend’s career.
His started off innocently enough…
Then there was the time where he got wrecked by a wrecking ball
Or when he was a living archery target
Let’s never forget his car wreck stunt
Or when his “roller-skis” went horribly wrong
Remember that time he jumped from the top of a building?
Super Dave’s stunts only got more insane from here…
