Brezner’s clients included Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Earl Sweatshirt and comedians Billy Martin and Sean Kelly, among others, but he was also known for an accomplished career in film.

Brezner is credited putting together 20 films including the Dudley Moore vehicle “Arthur,” the Robin Williams vehicle, “Good Morning Vietnam,” “Throw Momma From The Train” and one that he was most proud of, “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” according to Deadline Hollywood.

“Larry Brezner and I produced and managed together for close to 40 years,” business partner David Steinberg told Deadline. “With all the funny people we managed, Larry was the funniest person I ever knew.”
