Chuy Bravo, who sat alongside Chelsea Handler and made audiences laugh on the E! late-night series Chelsea Lately, has died. He was 63.

Bravo passed away Saturday in Mexico City, according to published reports. His cause of death was not disclosed.

After learning of his death, Handler shared a tribute on Instagram Sunday afternoon.

“I loved this nugget in a big way, and I took great pleasure in how many people loved him as much as I did and do. @chuybravo gave us so much laughter and I’ll never forget the sound of his laughter coming from his office into mine. Or his ‘business calls’ with his ‘business manager,’ or his shoe rack with all his children-sized shoes,” the comedian captioned a collage of photos of the pair.

Born in Michoacán, Mexico in 1956, Bravo moved to California when he was 15.

In addition to appearing on Chelsea Lately, he had roles in the films The Honeymooners and Buscando Nirvana.
