Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your Enthusiasm is an American comedy television series produced and broadcast by HBO that premiered on October 15, 2000. The series was created by Larry David starring 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. Also starring are Cheryl Hines as his wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin as his manager and best friend Jeff, and Susie Essman as Jeff's wife Susie. Curb Your Enthusiasm often features guest stars, and many of these appearances are by celebrities playing versions of themselves fictionalized to varying degrees. The plots and subplots of the episodes are established in an outline written by David, and the dialogue is largely improvised by the actors (a technique known as retroscripting). As with Seinfeld, which David co-created, the subject matter in Curb Your Enthusiasm often involves the minutiae of American daily social life, and plots often revolve around Larry David's many faux pas and his problems with certain social conventions and expectations, as well as his annoyance with other people's behavior. The character has a hard time letting such annoyances go unexpressed, which often leads him into awkward situations. He is also routinely the victim of elaborate misunderstandings wherein other characters believe that he has done something morally terrible or disgusting. The series was developed from a 1999 one-hour special, Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm, which David and HBO originally envisioned as a one-time project. The special was shot as a mockumentary, where the characters were aware of the presence of cameras and a crew. The series itself is not a mock documentary but is shot in a somewhat similar, cinéma vérité-like style. Curb Your Enthusiasm has received high critical acclaim and has grown in popularity since its debut. It has been nominated for 38 Primetime Emmy Awards, and Robert B. Weide received an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the episode "Krazee Eyez Killa". The show won the 2002 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. After the eighth season concluded in September 2011, Curb Your Enthusiasm went on an indefinite hiatus. The series finally returned for a ninth season in October 2017, while a tenth season is in production as of October 2018.

Larry David:
Every time I go to the bathroom I have to have this stop-and-chat with her both before I go and after I go. You know, it's too much.

Richard Lewis:
She means well. By the way, she told me that you go to the bathroom like ten to fourteen times a day. You move your bowels, you piss... Are you alright? She was concerned.

Larry David:
Alright, you see what I'm saying? This is what I'm talking about. This is none of her business! How often I go to the bathroom, what I'm doing in there, how long I'm in there, talking to you about my personal bathroom habits! That's not good, alright? It's too much! It's too much.

Richard Lewis:
But someone's gonna sit there. What, would you rather have a klansman sitting there?

Larry David:
No, I would rather have a stranger, frankly! A stranger sitting there who I don't have to report in to.

Richard Lewis:
She cares about you.

Larry David:
Oh, she cares about me?

Richard Lewis:
Yeah.

Larry David:
Listen, it's none of her business...

Richard Lewis:
She has bowel concern for you and I do too!

Larry David:
I don't need her bowel concern! I drink a lot of water, that's all. I drink a lot of water. Big deal.

Richard Lewis:
A lot of water? You drink more than a porpoise. No one pisses that often without drinking like thousands of gallons a week.

Larry David:
Alright, let's stop talking about this. My bathroom habits are not your concern, okay?

Richard Lewis:
Alright then I won't care about your health. Fine.

Larry David:
You don't need to care about- I'm in very good health! I got a beautiful colon! You wanna take a picture of my colon?

Richard Lewis:
I have a VHS of mine!

Larry David:
Fine, fine, you can put my colon up next to your colon! We'll see who has a cleaner, healthier colon!

Richard Lewis:
I'll have a colon contest with you any time you want!

Larry David:
Any time you wanna have a colon contest, buddy!

Richard Lewis:
You're shitting and pissing almost seventy times a week!

Larry David:
Get the hell out of here! This is ridiculous!

Richard Lewis:
She's right next to you, she's...

Larry David:
I DON'T WANT HER MONITORING MY BATHROOM HABITS, OKAY?

Richard Lewis:
I mean, what are you eating? A lot of grains and fruits and nuts? You're like a Jew squirrel.
