Comedian David A. Arnold Dies At 54

David A. Arnold, an actor, writer, showrunner, and seasoned stand-up comedian, passed away on Wednesday, according to his family. He was 54. 

“It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of our husband, father, brother, and friend, David A. Arnold,” the comic’s family wrote. 

The announcement just said that the person had died of "natural causes," which is vague. 

"It Ain't for the Weak" was Arnold's second Netflix comedy special, produced by Kevin Hart's company, Hartbeat. 

Arnold's hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, served as the location for the July special's filming at the Hanna Theatre.

Arnold enormously impacted the L.A. stand-up events, and his appearances on Comedy Central and BET often drew large crowds and garnered positive reviews from critics. 

Arnold featured his wife, Julie L. Harkness, and their daughters, Anna-Grace, and Ashlyn, in his animated brand of comedy.
