David passed on peacefully today in his home and doctors have ruled the reason for death because of natural causes.

Please keep us in prayer and respect our privacy at the moment, as we are shocked and devastated by this loss, the statement concluded.

Comedian Discussed Career ONLY A Week Before His Death, Recalled Bombing On First Open Mic Night

Only a week before his passing, Arnold discussed his comedy career with Jalen Rose for his weekly NY Post column, and recalled bombing during his first open mic night.

Arnold noted that you gotta bomb (first) and (see) in the event that you still wish to accomplish it.

However, after serving in the Navy, he was inspired by D.L. Hughley to come back to comedy years later.

And the following point you understand, I was a comedian, he told Rose. And thats when I realized: You gotta bomb. You have to go on it in the facial skin and you also still surely got to wish to accomplish it.

The Ohio native began his career at the Montreal Comedy Festival before eventually appearing on Jamie Foxx Presents Laffapalooza.

His first Netflix stand-up special was 2019s David A. Arnold: Fat Ballerina. He followed that up with another special, It Aint For The Weak, that was made by fellow comedian Kevin Hart, in July of the year.

Arnold is survived by his wife Julie Harkness and their two daughters Anna-Grace and Ashlyn.
