[no bio found]
- The popularity of _"Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2000)_ (qv) has resulted in the term "Larry David moment", meaning inadvertently causing a socially awkward situation, entering the American pop culture lexicon.
- Father of 'Cazzie David' (qv) (born 1994) and 'Romy David' (qv) (born 1996).
- 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.
- Close friend of writer 'Damien Furey' (qv).
- Is a New York Yankees fan.
- 'Roger Ebert' (qv) gave David's major motion picture writing-directing debut _Sour Grapes (1998)_ (qv) 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)_ (qv), where a food critic (who just happens to use a thumbs up/thumbs down approach to his reviews) gets his thumb broken at the end. Ebert loves the show, though he recalls wincing at the thumb-breaking scene.
- Was a writer on _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) 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.
- As he grew richer, with a Forbes-estimated fortune of more than $200 million for his role as co-creator of _"Seinfeld" (1990)_ (qv), this otherwise hapless, former failed stand-up comic says that he developed an allergy to caviar, which "was the perfect metaphor for my life."
