Larry David Bringing Back 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' For Ninth Season


Larry David HBO

Five years after it last appeared on TV screens, Larry David’s cult classic sitcom ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ is set to return for a very long-awaited ninth season on HBO.

Comedy writer, actor and stand-up performer David has had a standing, open invitation to make new episodes of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ ever since the last episode aired way back in 2011. Running for eight seasons between 2000 before signing off five years ago, it was HBO’s longest-running scripted series and performed consistently strongly in the ratings.

Jennifer Lawrence Admits To Seth Meyers She Used To Have A Crush On Him


Jennifer Lawrence Seth Meyers Larry David

Jennifer Lawrence told Seth Meyers, to his face, that she used to have a crush on him years ago and was once on the verge of asking him out, because she didn’t know that he was engaged.

25 year old Lawrence appeared on ‘Late Night’ on NBC on Tuesday night (December 15th), and made a few eyebrow-raising revelations about her celebrity crushes, which included the show’s presenter himself. In early 2013, when he was the head writer at ‘Saturday Night Live’, Lawrence guest-hosted the show and was hoping to get his number, before a costume fitter informed her that Meyers was already spoken for.

YES! Secret 'Seinfeld' Project Confirmed By Jerry - Everything We Know


Jerry Seinfeld Jason Alexander Larry David

It’s been on the cards. Seinfeld did an AMA on Reddit in which he hinted at a secret project with Larry David – another one of the brains behind the phenomenal success of 90s sitcom, Seinfeld. Then he was pictured talking to Jason Alexander outside the iconic Tom’s Café, NYC.

Jerry SeinfeldWhat the hell is going on Jerry Seinfeld?

Seinfeld was in the mood for answering questions when he appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show. Usually so tight-lipped, it’s hard to imagine he had any other intention of whetting the public’s appetite for a Seinfeld-esque return.

'Seinfeld' Reunion On The Cards? - Jerry And George Spotted Filming At Tom's Restaurant


Jerry Seinfeld Jason Alexander Larry David

Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander helped make Tom's Restaurant a internationally-known hang-out when Jerry, George, Krammer and Elaine used it as their regular haunt on hit 90's sitcom Seinfeld. On Monday, 13 January, Jerry and George (who was played by Alexander) visited their old haunt once again, prompting rumours of a possible Seinfeld reunion.

It wasn't just Seinfeld and Alexander who were there either, as series co-writer and Curb Your Enthusiasm mastermind Larry David was also allegedly spotted at the dinner, as was a camera crew catching their actions - or at least Jerry and Jason's. This was clearly no chance meeting and the presence of the camera crew has only escalated rumours that a follow on or potential spin off for Seinfeld could be on its way, however the more likely explanation is that the two were filming something much less exciting.

For Michael J. Fox, His Parkinsons Is Funny


Michael J Fox Larry David

Michael J. Fox’s new show could have ignored his affliction – he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991 – and it probably woud have still been funny. He’s a funny guy. But for Fox, years of battling the disease have put him in a position to laugh at it, and he thinks you will to.

Michael J. FoxFox's new show is out in September

"There's nothing horrifying about it to me," he says. "I don't think it's gothic nastiness. There's nothing horrible on the surface about someone with a shaky hand. The way I look at it, sometimes it's frustrating, sometimes it's funny. I need to look at it that way." (USA Today)

Pre-tty, Pretty Bad: Larry David Leaves 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Future In Doubt

Larry David has given the strongest hint yet that the eighth season of HBO comedy 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' was the show's last.

Appearing on-stage at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday (July 25, 2013) to promote his new movie Clear History, David indicated that the future of his award-winning comedy was in doubt.

"I don't know, I really couldn't say...Ask me in six months," he said when asked when audiences could expect the ninth season.

Jerry Seinfeld Bemoans Mets Fans' "Terrible Manners"


Jerry Seinfeld Larry David

Jerry Seinfeld – America’s biggest comedian and most probably the Mets’ most successful fan – has condemned the behaviour of the Citi Field crowd, comparing them to five-year-olds as they booed players at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game.

Jerry SeinfeldSeinfeld and that laugh

Talking to New York’s WFAN radio on Wednesday, Seinfeld said: “This is one of the lowest moments of my lifetime of Mets fandom, when the Citi Field crowd was booing (players) that they see as rivals to their Mets team.” He told Steve Somers: “And I’m standing there, I was in shock. I was embarrassed. I thought it was horrible manners.”

Life Imitates Art For Jeff Garlin, Who Is Arrested After A Farcical Argument Over A Parking Space


Jeff Garlin Larry David

Jeff Garlin, he of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame, was arrested over the weekend after a heated argument he was involved in became ugly and things turned violent (thanks mainly to Jeff we think). The actor was arrested and charged with vandalism after coming into conflict with a co-worker, all because of a parking space of all things.

The actor, who plays Larry David's manager and equally unintentionally idiotic friend on the hit HBO series, was arrested on Saturday (June 15) for allegedly going ape on a couple's car after he became involved in a high-strung argument over a parking spot in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, who first broke the story, the Wall-E voice-actor was arrested at about 3pm in Studio City after getting into a war of words that resulted in Garlin allegedly smashing the windows of the other person's Mercedes. Moral of the story is, use public transport in LA.

The actor was arrested and taken to the station where he was booked and spent the night in a cell. He was released at around 8am the following day and has yet to comment on the situation, or mention whether Larry will be using it as a premise for an upcoming episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Curb Your Enthusiasm (For Smashing Up Cars) Jeff Garlin Is Arrested!


Jeff Garlin Larry David HBO

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Jeff Garlin has been arrested for allegedly smashing a couple's car window following a heated argument over a parking space in Los Angeles. The 51-year-old actor, who plays Larry David's long-serving manager in the classic comedy show, was arrested for felony vandalism in Studio City at around 3pm on Saturday (June 16, 2013).

Sources tell TMZ.com that Garlin got into a verbal fight with another person over a parking space, though things quickly became violent and the actor allegedly smashed the windows of the other person's Mercedes Benz. Cops were called to the scene and Garlin was arrested before being released from jail as of Sunday morning (June 16).

Ok so it's never funny when people's car windows get smashed in (no, not even Mercedes drivers) but this one sounds like a scene straight from Curb Your Enthusiasm. Surely Larry jumped out of Garlin's car and tried to placate the situation before accidentally suggesting it was a racially motivated attack? Surely?

'Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee' Season 2 Premieres Today


Jerry Seinfeld Larry David Ricky Gervais

There’s no hidden premise, no hidden meaning. Jerry Seinfeld’s latest project comprises him, a fellow comedian, a car and some coffee. The cars are beautiful things – all vintage and expensive looking – and the chats are nothing less than hilarious and engaging.

Season 1 included gusts like Larry David, Ricky Gevais Jerry’s Seinfeld costar Michael Richards, who played Kramer on the show so masterfully. Seinfeld’s and Richards chat is something to behold; it’s genuine and touching. A real mastery of ‘chat’. Of season two, Seinfeld said: "I know these people, and this is it — this is what they're really like. You walk out on a talk show, you know, 'I'm on here for eight minutes; I want to make sure I tell a funny story or do an interesting anecdote.' You're not just going to be sitting there tapping a coffee stirrer on the table, but you can do that on this show. So nobody feels that pressure to perform, and I do feel like I am capturing their true demeanor and energy." If you like old cars, comedians OR coffee, then you’ll have already seen season 1.

Other highlights include Bob Einstein, who plays Marty Funkhouser in Curb Your Enthusiasm. But what fans will be dying to see is the full unedited content, as the shows are just 10 minutes long. "It's simple to shoot, and we do spend a lot of time reducing what is sometimes a two- or three-hour experience down to what I feel is the juiciest 14 minutes of that. I think editing is one of the great luxuries. I think it's one of the things life really needs,” added Seinfeld.

Jessica Simpson Set For NBC Comedy Pilot


Jessica Simpson Louis C.K. Larry David

After years of making herself look stupid by accident, Jessica Simpson is set to do it on purpose after it has been revealed that she'll star in a television pilot in development for NBC that is loosely based on her life, Reuters reports. 

Following a fairly successful pop career, Simpson became best know for reality TV shows, including MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which followed Simpson and her first husband and fellow pop singer Nick Lachey. She also served as a mentor on NBC's Fashion Star. "The show is inspired by her life as she's going through a new phase in her life becoming a mom," said executive producer Ben Silverman, who is the creator of NBC's reality show 'The Biggest Loser.' "It's a combination of 'I Love Lucy' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,'" he added, referring to the classic 1950s Lucille Ball comedy series and the HBO series by "Seinfeld" creator Larry David.

Given that shows like Louie and Curb your Enthusiasm portray the semi-real lives of people that have created respected work - Louis C.K being a successful stand up prior to his show, and Larry David penning America's favourite comedy, Seinfeld - it's difficult to see how Simpson will be able to capitalise on the genre, considering most of her success has come from her sheer stupidity. However, her seemingly vapid existence could merely have been a well-articulated ruse in order to accumulate hard cash; cash which she might now be spending to portray the real her. Somehow we doubt it, but good luck to her. 

The Three Stooges Review


OK
The Farrelly brothers return to the vacuously silly style of Dumb and Dumber for this gently idiotic comedy that recreates the iconic knucklehead trio that epitomised movie slapstick from the 1930s to the 1970s. Intriguingly, the film is warm and wacky, only rarely dips into today's more cynical, referential sense of humour. Clearly, the Farrellys have a real affection for the Three Stooges, as do the actors who recreate them.

The story starts as we watch Larry, Moe and Curly (Hayes, Diamantopoulos and Sasso) growing up in an orphanage, watched over by Mother Superior (Lynch) and several rather frazzled nuns (including Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David). But when the orphanage is threatened with closure, the clueless trio heads out to raise the cash needed to save it. They immediately run into the shamelessly wealthy Lydia (Vergara), who hires them to bump off her husband so she can run off with his business partner (Bierko). But of course everything goes crazily wrong.

The Three Stooges Trailer


The Three Stooges is a comic caper, following the lives of three men who were left on the doorstep of an orphanage when they were babies. This updated version of the 1930s vaudeville act of the same name sees the familiar characters of Larry, Moe and Curly try to save their childhood orphanage from closure. In the process, they become embroiled in a bizarre murder plot, as well as finding themselves somehow starring in a phenomenally successful reality TV show.

Seinfeld: Season Seven Review


Excellent
Season seven finds Jerry Seinfeld and gang still riding a wave of popularity and impressive creativity. In this season's best episodes, catch-phrases still in wide use were created ("The Soup Nazi" is one of the series' best-loved episodes and a highlight of this box set). Even lesser episodes are still impresive: George's embracing of the calzone as a favorite lunch treat, which becomes boss Steinbrenner's treat as well, is as guilty a pleasure as the series ever put forth.

But most of the episodes exhibit that same intense sense of vague dissatisfaction with life and ironic displeasure with just about everything that became staples of Seinfeld. Whether Jerry's trying to snag a marble rye, Elaine is deciding the "sponge-worthiness" of her sexual conquests, or -- in the season's major running plotline -- George is doing anything to get out of his impending wedding (which he succeeds in in the season finale), the show remains completely watchable and never short of hilarious. Alexander's frustration with fiancee Susan makes him a real centerpiece of the season, as even Jerry himself takes a back seat to George's insane antics.

Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm Review


Excellent
There's a moment in Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm that I became sure that I was dealing with a mockumentary. Larry is in the offices at HBO and, over Larry's shoulder, there was a poster for Lenny Bruce: Swear to tell the Truth. Seeing as the last documentary made by Robert Weide was the Academy-award nominated Lenny Bruce film, that was simply too coincidental to rule out any possibility that the documentary was real.

Of course I had my suspicions before that. The conversations Larry David was having were a little too Seinfeldian in nature. The conflicts a little too contrived. What they said all seemed to flow naturally, as most mockumentary dialogue does (see The Blair Witch Project's bit about Gilligan's Island). The camera shook just the right amount. The colors had that amateurish hue associated when you don't have cinematographers shining lights in people's faces or a very good DV. Knowing Weide's latest works (Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth and being the writer-producer for Mother Night), I couldn't help but crack a smile as I realized that one was being put over on millions of HBO viewers across the country. Its the exact kind of thing that Larry David and Robert Weide would (and obviously do) love.

Sour Grapes Review


Good
Maligned and underrated, Sour Grapes is the feature debut of Larry David, one of the masterminds of Seinfeld. You definitely get that Seinfeld vibe here, but sadly, Weber and Bierko are no Seinfeld and Richards. A decent laugh.
