  • Jerry Seinfeld reveals new collaboration with Larry David

    January 7, 2014 | 11:00 am

    Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have teamed up for a new project, and it’s big. And…well, that’s it.

    Other than the fact that the thing is about “intentional mumbling” and that we will see it “eventually,” Seinfeld revealed little else about the script while answering audience...

  • “Fridays” Finally Freed to DVD by Fan Richard Foos

    By Melanie Chartoff

    October 10, 2013 | 10:08 am

    Once upon a time, some iconoclastic comic actors and wildly original writers were assembled to copy a hit TV show's style, and despite format limits, managed to distinguish themselves in bleeding edge ways. Staggering under the pressure of performing live with little network...

  • Larry David displays his ‘clear’ enthusiasm

    August 7, 2013 | 1:00 pm

    It’s been nearly two years since Larry David’s eighth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” aired on HBO, but there’s good news for fans of David’s quirky, idiosyncratic comedy. The movie “Clear History,” his latest project for the cable network, has much of “Curb’s” same DNA, meaning...

  • The real Susie Essman

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 29, 2013 | 11:04 am

    “Everybody thinks I’m Susie Greene,” actress and comedian Susie Essman said.

    And no wonder. Over eight seasons on Larry David’s largely improvised HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Essman has portrayed a pampered, albeit foul-mouthed Jewish housewife, whose blistering sarcasm...

  • Alan Dershowitz sends ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ episode to Netanyahu

    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.

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has sent an episode of David’s...

  • 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...

  • ‘Dictator’ scribes dish on Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    May 2, 2012 | 11:46 am

    David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer, screenwriters of Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film, “The Dictator,” were bantering in the comic actor’s office as Alec Berg, their co-writer, joined in by speakerphone — he was home babysitting his young daughter. Baron Cohen, star of the...

  • 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.

    One is “bespectacled,” which is fair enough. Another is “bald,” a signifier that...

  • JERRY SEINFELD MADE ME FAMOUS - SORT OF

    By Annie Korzen

    June 26, 2011 | 2:51 pm

    This blog is about thrifty living, and one of my mantras – especially for chronically unemployed free-lancers like myself – is “Say yes to everything.”  I figure a day’s work is better than staying home and re-organizing my spice rack. 

    My agent called one day with an...

    June 21, 2011 | 2:38 am

    So there’s a post over at Slate.com, “America’s Greatest Living Humorists: Parker and Stone, or Larry David?”

    The author, Jeremy Stahl, goes back and forth trying to decide who is our number one funny man:  the creators of South Park, Team America and The Book of Mormon, or the...

    April 11, 2011 | 12:23 pm

    As the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm approaches, I’d like to take this time to thank God for the previous seven.  Every episode has been a gift and I know the eight season will not disappoint.  Going back to his roots, Larry David and his gang have made New York the atmosphere...

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    April 8, 2011 | 6:39 pm

    Paul Reiser eyes his agent warily in an upcoming episode of “The Paul Reiser Show,” the writer-actor-comedian’s new half-hour comedy on NBC, which closely resembles his real life.  In the scene, it’s been some years since Reiser’s megahit “Mad About You” went off the...

  • Larry David: Thanks for the tax cut!

    December 21, 2010 | 10:32 am

    From NYTimes.com:

    THERE is a God! It passed! The Bush tax cuts have been extended two years for the upper bracketeers, of which I am a proud member, thank you very much. I’m the last person in the world I’d want to be beside, but I am beside myself! This is a life changer, I...

  • Emmy Awards: Top Ten Jewish Moments

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    August 29, 2010 | 11:06 pm

    It’s fitting that the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 29 showed a clip of this year’s Oscar ceremony—the one where Steve Martin decreed that in “Inglourious Basterds,” Christophe Waltz played a Nazi “obsessed with finding Jews.  “Well, Christophe,“ Martin added,...

  • Curb Your Enthusiasm Review: October 4th 2009

    By  Eddy Friedfeld

    October 5, 2009 | 1:19 am

    “You know those reunion shows never work…,” Larry David tells manager Jeff Garlin.

    “You criticized and downgraded people for doing reunions,” Jerry Seinfeld tells his former producing partner.

    And yet…

    Larry has hatched perhaps his most daring plot of all- using the...

  • David, ‘Seinfeld’ Cast Reunite, Rant

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    September 16, 2009 | 4:56 pm

    In its last two seasons, Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” pushed politically correct notions of Jewish identity and race to cringe-worthy and hilarious extremes. David, playing an exaggerated version of his misanthropic self, briefly made nice when he mistakenly believed he...

  • Curb to host ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion—- Top 5 ‘Seinfeld’ Reunion Q’s

    By Jay Firestone

    August 27, 2009 | 2:54 pm

    It’s happening.  The cast of NBC’s monster sitcom, “Seinfeld” will reunite during the next season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

    It’s really an “anti-reunion reunion,” says Julia Louis-Dreyfus in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. 

    My guess is if you liked “Jerry,” you’ll love...

  • Jeff Garlin Can’t Curb His Enthusiasm for the Farmers Market

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    July 21, 2009 | 6:36 pm

    Jeff Garlin burst onto the national scene as Larry David’s schlemiel of a manager on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which will begin its seventh season on HBO this fall, but last week his focus was decidedly local – at Third and Fairfax– as he emceed the Farmers Market’s 75th...

    By Tom Teicholz

    December 22, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Larry David, the producer-writer-star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has just finished airing the fifth season of his HBO program. Many people find him hilarious. Others find him annoying in the extreme. Both are right, of course, and David builds his humor out of this particular...

  • Jew’s-Eye View TV

    By Catherine Seipp

    October 4, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Larry David is notoriously prickly. Still, at a recent HBO press conference for "Curb Your Enthusiasm," the television series starring the comedy writer as himself (the second season premiered Sept. 23), he made a game effort to be brightly quotable. "I might be the first bald man to...
