Wittels, who wrote, executive produced and starred in the hit NBC comedy, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles yesterday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Wittels was also a stand-up comedian, a drummer for the band Don't Stop or We'll Die and a writer for The Sarah Silverman Program and Suits.

He coined the term 'humblebrag', publishing Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty in 2012.

Parks and Rec star Amy Poehler remembered her colleague at Variety's unite4humanity event last night, saying: "Today, I lost a friend. I lost a dear, young friend in my life who was struggling with addiction."
