    October 9, 2013 | 4:28 pm

    I have one big answer to the depressing findings of the Pew poll, but you’re not going to like it.

    The Pew Research Center’s landmark new survey of American Jews came out last week, and the American Jewish community reacted about the way Sandra Bullock does when her tether snaps...

    May 20, 2013 | 10:28 am

    Comedian Larry David has been called a lot of things over the course of his long and successful career, but we’re pretty sure “peace maker” has never been one of them. Until now. Well, almost sort of, anyway.

  • Uncle Leo, helloooooo

    By Jonathan Kirsch

    January 3, 2013 | 2:06 pm

    “Seinfeld” was never really “a show about nothing.” Rather, not unlike the Bible, it was a work of the imagination that had something to say about nearly everything.

    One episode, for example, focuses on the moral ambiguity of old people stealing from a chain store.  The culprit...

    To sell...

  • Contrary to type, Larry David’s not at all neurotic

    July 26, 2011 | 10:22 am

    Three adjectives are often used to describe Larry David, the star and creator of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which recently premiered its eighth season after two excruciating Curb-less years.

    Jeff Garlin loves being Jewish. He's a borscht-eating, challah-noshing, temple-going, "big bowl of Jewish," as he so proudly describes himself.

    A proud Jew at home, Garlin also plays one on television.

    Best known as Jeff Greene on the hit comedy series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which...
