Comedian Matt Lucas was among those to pay tribute to the star.
His agent Peter Mansfield told the PA news agency: "His family were very sad not to be able to be in the same room as him, touching him, in the last week because of coronavirus. And a huge thank-you to the donor and the donor's family". They began their careers in the early 1960's.
Large, whose real name was Edward McGinnis, was born in Glasgow but spent much of his youth living in Manchester before moving to Portishead, near Bristol, as an adult.
The Little And Large star was best known for his partnership with Syd Little.
Eddie Large has been remembered as "an incredible talent and an outstanding comedian" after his death at the age of 78.
Little and Large was watched every week by audiences of more than 15 million people, and Eddie was interviewed by presenter Iain Lee at Somerset Hall in Portishead in 2017. Totally and naturally amusing. He had the best years on TV. "Mine and Hazels hearts go out to Patsy and the family".
Film director Edgar Wright remembered spotting the duo as a child and wrote: "In the 80's my family were on the M5, overtaking a vehicle with a massive Little & Large decal on the back".
Boxer Frank Bruno said he had happy memories of working together over the years saying: "RIP Eddie Large of Little & Large we spent loads of quality time together including pantomimes and TV appearances".
Sir Lenny recalled "midnight matinee Great Yarmouth" in 1978.
He added: "When they get eight million now they're having champagne parties, but that's just the way of the world". I'd never heard laughter like it. Dunno how they did it, but Eddie's energy and electricity and impressions and props and improv were hugely impressive.
