He’s only getting better with age.
And no, I didn’t name a bottle of wine Thor. I’m not crazy. My mother had me (Big Bang Theory fans will fill-in-the-blank here). The “he” in the sentence above refers to the genius comedic writer and actor Larry David.
Seinfeld savants have been cognizant of Mr. David’s writing prowess since the late ’80s and throughout the nineties in the sitcom world. However, Larry David has been experiencing a renaissance of sorts with the public (even though he really didn’t go anywhere) for his HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm, a successful stint on SNL as Bernie Sanders (spot-on) and a Broadway writing and acting debut in Fish in the Dark. Part of this renaissance is that with his HBO show and play, Larry David has been in front of the camera and on-stage.
Add in nostalgia for the timeless brilliance of Seinfeld’s unique brand of humor and an old guy humorously telling it exactly like it is (and then some) in completely absurd (yet entirely relatable) situations on Curb Your Enthusiasm and those are the main reasons why Larry David is experiencing a Betty White-like resurgence in recent years.
Plus, Larry David is insanely funny as an actor and a writer!
And he’s still going strong…
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
