TOAN Magazine Throwback Thursday: Curb Your Enthusiasm is Making a Comeback — In Honor of the Re-Up, Check Out Our Favorite Curb Moments
If you’re just starting to hear the name Curb Your Enthusiasm buzzing around for the very first time, lets get you hip. Curb is a comedy series created by Larry David (of Seinfeld) and produced and broadcast by HBO. The show is filmed in a sort of vérité style, and premiered way back on October 15th, 2000. It aired 80 episodes over eight seasons, the last of which aired in 2011. My main man Larry David stars as a fictionalized version of himself. The series follows Larry in his life as a semi-retired television writer and producer in Los Angeles and later New York City, where he becomes a Broadway star!
The plots and subplots of the episodes are established in an outline written by David and the dialogue is largely improvised by the actors. Similar to Seinfeld, the theme of Curb episodes generally revolve around the trivial detail of daily life and David’s many faux pas and troubles with social conventions and expectations. In simple, all of those little things in life like not using a blinker to signal a turn or the infamous “chat and cut” in line, that piss you off, Larry David does NOT let them slide.
That being said, Curb Your Enthusiasm is a TOAN FAVORITE and we dedicate this weeks Throwback Thursday to the return of Curb for a 9th season! We celebrate the announce of the return by sharing a few of our favorite Curb moments. Enjoy!
