David A. Arnold, a stand-up comedian and the creator and showrunner of Nickelodeon's "That Girl Lay Lay," died unexpectedly on Wednesday. He was 54.


"It is with great sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of David A. Arnold, our husband, father, brother, and friend," Arnold's family said in a statement. "David died peacefully today in his home, and doctors have determined that the cause of death was natural causes." Please keep our family in prayer and respect our privacy at this time as we are all shocked and devastated by this loss.”


Insiders in the industry were taken aback by Arnold's death. He was affiliated with Kevin Hart, who produced Arnold’s second Netflix standup special, “It Ain’t for the Weak,” which debuted in July. The special consists of routines centered on Arnold's family life, including marital squabbles and entitled children. It came after his Netflix standup debut with "Fat Ballerina" in 2019. In late April and early May, Arnold was a part of the Netflix Is a Joke comedy festival.
