Is any comedian more New York than Larry David? Don't answer that. Joan Rivers and Jerry Seinfeld could argue the case. Yet, no one embodies New York Jewish anxiety and angst better than David has for seven seasons on Curb Your Enthusiasm. So, it's about time this hilarious and insufferable schnook took the show to his hometown, as he did last summer, to shoot several episodes. With New York dwellers Ricky Gervais and Rosie O'Donnell adding vinegar, plus Susie Essman calling him a big four eyed fuck in the middle of rush hour in mid-town, this is going be an epic homecoming.
Season 8 of Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres on HBO July 10th. We might not have our summer of Mad Men, but we'll have Larry right where he belongs - in the midst of hot, sticky, angry New York.
