Few shows are as outrageously funny as Curb Your Enthusiasm, and even though it’s been 6 years to the day since the show last aired, it’s clear that nothing has changed. Curb has aged gracefully, and funny is funny, so I can’t imagine the time off equaling any kind of drop in quality. Plus, our best friend Bryan Cranston joined the cast as Larry’s therapist! Curb premieres Sunday, October 1st.
“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.
Asked why he decided to come back, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”
This day just got a little brighter, because one of the funniest shows on television is coming back to HBO. No filming or premiere dates were announced but that’s alright, because everyone’s favorite cynic/comedic genius is back in action. Curb hasn’t aired an episode since September 2011 (!) so the next time we see it it’ll be over five years since it’s been on the air. Some of us got our Larry David fix this year on SNL when he busted out his amazing Bernie Sanders impression (and hosted one of the best episodes of the year) but a full season of Curb is just what the doctor ordered.
Overall, Larry David’s SNL was a welcome surprise, although it probably shouldn’t of been. He’s been great on ‘Curb’ for years, and his brand of humor translated over to SNL seamlessly. The best example of that was the pre taped ‘Bern Your Enthusiasm’ sketch. David played Bernie Sanders (wonderfully as usual) during the Iowa caucus. Watch and enjoy.
