Back in 2009, the seventh season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm was centered around Larry David agreeing to do a Seinfeld reunion in the hopes of resuscitating his doomed marriage. Featuring appearances by Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and Wayne “Newman” Knight, these Curb episodes are the closest thing to a full-fledged Seinfeld reunion to hit the...

Should you be keeping a presumably lengthy list of Larry David’s dislikes, here are some more items to add. In a new promo for CNN’s upcoming The History Of Comedy David declares: “I hate documentaries. I hate being on documentaries. I hate answering questions.” Of course, the clip indicates that he’ll be doing all of those things, but he wants you to know he’s not happy about it.

Over the weekend, Black Lives Matter activists interrupted Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders at a town hall meeting. While Sanders has a long record of being active in the civil rights movement of the ’60s—he was present at the march on Washington in 1963 and he was an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee—the activists who interrupted the candidate believe that

It happened! Bernie Sanders on "SNL" happened, just like we all knew it would! Larry David was there! They were onscreen together! This is what it looked like! It was brief!

Also Larry David played Bernie Sanders in a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" takeoff called "Bern Your Enthusiasm!" It was extremely funny and this is the video!

The last season of Curb Your Enthusiasm was largely built around the famously abrasive Larry David having to interact with the infinitely likable Lin-Manuel Miranda as they struggled to put together a musical based on the life of Salman Rushdie, with the two naturally getting roped into an Alexander Hamilton-style duel. For season 10, David is calling in another famous friend—though he is...

Why was 'Saturday Night Live' so toothless about Donald Trump?

No one had a clearer read on why Donald Trump was invited to host Saturday Night Live than Donald Trump. “The reason they put me there is one very simple reason: It’s called ratings,” the current Republican presidential frontrunner said Thursday on The Today Show.

Trump may overstate his influence in basically every other way, but he is remarkably clear-eyed when it comes to what he has called...

Life is full of awkward moments. Saying the wrong thing, being in the wrong place, or not being socially savvy enough to navigate the waters can lead to awkwardness and embarrassment. For many people, the perfect soundtrack for those feelings is the Curb Your Enthusiasm song (actually titled “Frolic” by Luciano Michelini), which often bookends Larry David’s descent into social pariah status...

She pockets a tip intended for a housekeeper. She uses her mentor’s funeral as an opportunity to advance her own career. And, five seasons into her HBO series, she shows no signs of having becoming a well-adjusted, successful adult, whatever that means. Hannah Horvath, the protagonist of Lena Dunham’s Girls, is not all that inspiring as a role model. But does she need to be? And what is it...

The line between Bernie Sanders and Larry David has been blurred ever since the Seinfeld creator debuted his pitch-perfect Sanders impression on Saturday Night Live.

The television sitcom underwent a renaissance in the mid-to-late 1980s, shocked back to life by the likes of Cheers, The Cosby Show, Murphy Brown, and Newhart. While those series worked within the multi-camera confines of ’70s success stories from MTM Enterprises and the Norman Lear factory, other, woolier programs found devoted cults (if not boffo ratings) pushing at the boundaries of what a...

And yet, this man grinding the rails and doing sweet kick-flips is not 69-year-old Larry David. It’s iconic pro skater Tony Hawk, wearing what can only be described as an extremely...

Bernie Sanders' Refusal to Endorse His Own Son for Congress Is Getting Extremely Weird

There are many things Bernie Sanders might like to talk about—Medicare for all, millionaires and billionaires screwing over poor people, his basketball prowess—but do NOT ask him to endorse his own son’s campaign for Congress. If you do, things will get really strange, really fast.

Here’s the deal: Levi Sanders, who once got extraordinarily mad online over yogurt, is running to represent New...

Here’s something you probably never noticed as Larry David was pissing off strangers, disrespecting the dead, and waxing rhapsodic about baldness: his fashion. Well, that’s probably because it doesn’t insist upon itself so much as exude a “‘what you see is what you get’ confidence,” so you’d be forgiven for not admiring his collection of unobtrusive sweaters and blazers. (Though who can...

The Larry David we see on Curb Your Enthusiasm and the Larry David one might see on the streets of L.A. are different people. Well, sorta. Factor in the comedian’s combative legacy (and his demeanor on morning talk shows), however, and the lines between reality and fiction begin to blur.

It’s safe to assume, then, that any delivery of good news from David would come with a healthy dose of...

Last year, when Bernie Sanders was a fun herald of our gloriously liberal future and not a painful reminder of how little it pays to be hopeful about anything, his passing resemblance to Larry David inspired Saturday Night Live to bring the Seinfeld co-creator on to host an episode of the show—an episode that turned out to be pretty good. Now, with his Curb Your Enthusiasm series finally back...
