Comedian Richard Lewis lists his pedigreed home in Hollywood Hills for sale


Stand-up comic and actor Richard Lewis has put his Hollywood Hills West home of nearly three decades on the market for $1.559 million.

Lewis, who bought the property in 1989 for $720,000, isn’t the only one connected to the Mediterranean-style home. Past owners and residents include actor-singer Eddie Albert, actor-dancer Gene Nelson and prolific voice-over actor Charles Judels.

The Mediterranean-style house, built in 1926, sits up from the street and has a canopy-topped front patio.


Within more than 2,500 square feet of white-walled space is a living room with a fireplace, a dining area, an updated kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Glass doors off the media room/lounge open to a balcony with another fireplace.

The master retreat — with a built-in reading nook and a separate office — takes in a view of the city.

A two-car garage sits off the entrance to the home.

Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad of Rodeo Realty hold the listing.

Lewis, 69, gained fame for his appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman” as well as his HBO specials. Among his television and film roles is the sitcom “Anything but Love” and the film comedy “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” (1993).

He has had a recurring role on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself, since its first season.
