What originally began in 1999 as a one-time one-hour special on HBO about "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David's return to stand-up comedy, has turned into a critically acclaimed smash-hit that has spanned 5 seasons(2000,2001,2002,2004,2005) and has earned itself quite a few awards. The show is mostly about the daily life of Larry David and his wife Cheryl(played by Cheryl Hines) and all the hilarious trouble he gets into by pissing people off.Other characters that play key roles in the show are "Jeff Greene"(played by Jeff Garlin Larry's agent, and Jeff's loud-mouth expletive-laden wife "Susie Greene"(played by Susie Essman). If you like(d) "Seinfeld" you'll either LOVE or HATE "Curb Your Enthusiasm" due to the fact that the two shows are quite different.
Larry David has written and appeared in EVERY "Curb Your Enthusiasm" episode.

One of the best shows on TV, and the funniest show ever created, technically a sitcom, but the show does not feature a laugh track, which makes it 4000 times funnier, and doesn't stall the show, as most laugh tracks do. Contains a visual style that takes some getting used to, but once you do it will look normal. The humor is side-splittingly hilarious and will remain so even after multiple viewings.

Fun Fact: David originally wanted to call the show "Soup's too distracting" after being asked "Soup or Salad" at a restaurant and proclaiming to the waitress "Soup's too distracting"
curb your enthusiasm is funnier then anything anyone has ever created, this includes seinfeld.

The greatest television series of all time. The comedy follows the hilarious life of Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld.
I watch Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO.

The best show on television. Many people beleive that if you are not Jewish, you wont get it. That aint true. Hilarious show! Gotta love Larry David.
Curb Your enthusiasm is the best show on television

Ah, Jesus is using the nail from the passion of the christ to put up a mezuzah.
a tv show that shows that the life of rich sucessfull people is not perfect, and, even if youre a genius, you also can be an asshole, like larry david it`s a great show.
