Johnny Depp, Warren Beatty and comedienne Sarah Silverman were among the stars who attended a memorial service for late comedian Garry Shandling on Sunday (24Apr16).
The Larry Sanders Show star died last month (Mar16) after suffering a heart attack, and he was remembered by friends and family during a service at Los Angeles' Wilshire Ebell Theatre, which was hosted by Judd Apatow and featured a dedication by a Buddhist monk, who praised the late funnyman for his commitment to the faith.
Apatow paid tribute to his friend and mentor by saying, "Why are we so upset about Garry? Because he opened up to us. He revealed his truth, his pain, his struggle, his fight to lead an ego-less life... He worked so hard to become the man that he became and an amazing friend to so many of us...He's like a comedy buddha."
Other speakers at the event included Silverman and Depp, while rocker Ryan Adams performed My Wrecking Ball in honour of the late star. Silverman, a friend of the funnyman who often played basketball with him, added, "My mind knows that he is gone but my body, my bones are positive that he's just in Hawaii (his favourite vacation spot)."
