Larry David's Quotes

  • I guess I still feel that I'm a comedian; if I had to pick one thing that I feel like I could do, it would be that. That doesn't mean that I like it, but I feel that's what I am.
  • [after winning the Golden Globe for best comedy series] This is a sad day for the Golden Globes. It is, however, quite a good day for Larry David. I suspect the wife will be a little forthcoming tonight.
  • Trying on pants is one of the most humiliating things a man can suffer that doesn't involve a woman.
  • Actually I walk around with the Emmy wherever I go, but I'm very casual about it.
  • Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man--there's your diamond in the rough.

Interesting Facts about Larry David

  1. As he grew richer, with a "Forbes"-estimated fortune of more than $200 million for his role as co-creator of Seinfeld (1989), this otherwise hapless, former failed stand-up comic says that he developed an allergy to caviar, which "was the perfect metaphor for my life.".
  2. Was a writer on Saturday Night Live (1975) for one season. In that entire season, David got only one sketch that he had written on the air, and it was the last sketch of the night.
  3. Was the inspiration for the character of George Costanza on Seinfeld (1989), although the actual surname is borrowed from Jerry Seinfeld's real-life acquaintance Michael Costanza.
  4. Roger Ebert gave David's major motion picture writing-directing debut Sour Grapes (1998) a zero-star review (a rating he saves for especially bad movies he finds to be "evil"). David got his revenge with his new show Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000), where a food critic (who just happens to use a thumbs up/thumbs down approach to his reviews) gets his thumbs accidentally broken by David during a dodge ball game. But Ebert loved the show, though he recalls wincing at the thumb-breaking scene.
  5. Close friend of writer Damien Furey.
  6. Graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in history.
  7. Despite his Brooklyn upbringing, has always been a New York Yankees fan. However, he's friendly with Boston Red Sox owner John Henry - a neighbor from Martha's Vineyard - and attended his wedding.
  8. Was a cast member of the TV series Fridays (1980). Another cast member was Michael Richards, who later played Kramer on Seinfeld (1989).
  9. Once neighbors with Kenny Kramer.
  10. He carries a pad of paper and a pencil with him wherever he goes to record his ideas, which typically come from his real-life interactions with people.
  11. When he was a stand-up comedian, he once walked on-stage and surveyed the crowd. Sensing no connection with them, he said, "This just isn't going to work," and promptly walked off the stage without performing any jokes.
  12. Father of Cazzie David (born 1994) and Romy David (born 1996).
  13. The popularity of Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000) has resulted in the term "Larry David moment", meaning inadvertently causing a socially awkward situation, entering the American pop culture lexicon.
  14. Borrowed the surname, for Elaine's character on Seinfeld (1989), from a female Manhattan TV production friend named Terry Benes.
  15. Served in the UIS.Army Reserve.
  16. Did not start performing stand-up until he was in his 30s.
  17. Many of the stories in Seinfeld (1989), such as George returning to a job he quit a few days prior and pretending he never left, are based on things that really happened to him.
  18. Has a bachelor's degree in History from the University of Maryland and in Business Administration from the Robert H. Smith School of Business.
  19. Worked as a store clerk, limousine driver, brassiere salesman and television repairman early in his career.
  20. Supported and campaigned for Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential election.
