The American stand-up comedian was a master of entertaining audiences of all types. He performed countless shows throughout his career, making thousands of people laugh with his jokes. He not only acted in several movies over the span of his career, but he also made a name for himself in American comedy due to his talent and passion.

Roman comedy was an essential part of his life and he continued to pursue it until the later years of his life when he became less active. Not only was Roman a stand-up comedian, but he was also a skilled writer, actor, and producer. Now, Roman Levin’s daughter Judi has spoken to TMZ about her father’s death. According to Judi, Roman passed away in the hospital after suffering a heart attack on Saturday morning.
