Bernie Sanders made his “surprise” appearance on Saturday Night Live and it surprisingly wasn’t in the Bern Your Enthusiasm sketch . Instead, we’re taken back to a steam ship in the Atlantic Ocean and placed in what seems like a Titanic situation. The ship is sinking and it’s women and children first, much to the chagrin of Larry David .
Larry David’s monologue ahead of SNL wasn’t some sort of protest or anti-version of your typical monologue. Instead, it was the anti-monologue because this is Larry David . He’s not going to go out and praise himself like a normal guest, he’s not going to sign and dance, and he’s certainly not going to place some sort of unrealistic goal on the show .
If you remember back to Super Bowl 49 , SNL had a fun lead in to aid the game’s appearance on NBC. And part of it was an ad for Totinos Pizza Rolls and the Totino’s Activity Pack For Women . Some took it to be a moment that highlighted the problem of women in television ads, especially during the Super Bowl.
This was Larry David’s first time hosting Saturday Night Live , which somehow sounds right and wrong at the same time. (It’s also the first time anyone named Larry has hosted. Poor Larry Storch and Larry Hagman never got their shot.) It’s kind of a shame David hasn’t hosted until now, because he seems like someone who should be at least a five-timer by now.

No episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm would be complete if Larry didn’t flip out at some minor injustice in his cushy life. The idea that somebody as comfortable and privileged as a “rich prick” like Larry David can still boil over with anger at the most trivial of things is what carried Curb through its eight seasons.
It’s safe to say that Larry David hosting SNL was pretty, pretty good idea . You’ll also never have to hear that for a while, so rejoice. But we need to relive Saturday night one more time because David is hilarious and Kevin Roberts is still the “coolest b*tch in town.” That’s likely why this rehearsal footage was shared online.

Listen, the bestsellers are a lie: Trying not to sweat the small stuff is fine, but sometimes you just need to recognize that even the smallest, most minute little bothers are excruciating and awful. And even though the more enlightened among us (ugh, those people, am I right?) say you need to let go and let someone — maybe close your eyes and take a few deep breaths?

Bernie Sanders candidacy has been a godsend for SNL because they keep getting the chance to invite Larry David back on the show . Having a guy like David around to sub in for a bit part in a sketch helps to elevate it to a watchable level. Also he’s not bad at performing as Bernie Sanders.
While many wait and wonder if Curb Your Enthusiasm will ever return, show creator and star Larry David has found a semi-regular outlet for his comedic impulses by playing Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live , the show where David’s career was almost smothered to death in its crib when he worked as a writer during the 1984-85 season.
Aaron Sorkin is making the publicity rounds for his new movie, Molly’s Game . As a result, he’s game to talk about his past projects, including what it was like to leave The West Wing , and have famous grump Larry David give him advice about how traumatic it would be.
As Sorkin tells the Hollywood Reporter , when NBC announced that he was leaving the show, David called him within an hour, and told him emphatically to never watch the show again:
Now, Larry David had left Seinfeld a couple seasons before it ended, and Larry David said, “Listen, whatever you do, you can’t ever watch the show again, because either it’s going to be great and you’re going to be miserable, or it’s going to be less than great, and you’re going to be miserable.
Yung Jake doesn’t want to break the Internet. But sometimes it feels like he’s trying to.
He released a mind-melting, awe-inspiring interactive HTML5 music video in 2012 called “ E.m-bed.de/d .” The video uses pop-up windows to take over your screen, aping the look and feel of a normal browser viewing YouTube, with insane reactions generated at random, based on line-cursor placement.

Larry David bumming around SNL has inspired some of the season’s best sketches and a blossoming relationship. Not between Larry David and shrugging (they’ve been going steady for decades), but the Curb Your Enthusiasm creator’s daughter and current SNL cast member Pete Davidson.
Unless you’re a big fan of Hannah Montana , you were probably introduced to Cazzie via her Instagram , where she takes the kind of photos you’d expect from someone who’s related to Larry David.

It’s no secret that Larry David — or at least the fictional version of Larry David presented in Curb Your Enthusiasm — is pretty, pretty, pretty bad at being chill when he needs to be . That’s why we love him. Who else would take people to task for minor infractions such as not picking up after one’s dog or messing with the cashew to raisin ratio in trail mix (what the hell were you thinking, David Schwimmer’s dad?).

Curb Your Enthusiasm funnyman Larry David has a theory on what he believes may be helping Broadway hit Hamilton continue to garner success — just a case of white people trying to be “hip.” The comedian told Daily News columnist Mike Lupica on his podcast, The Mike Lupica Show , that many whites who have seen the play just want to “solidify their liberal bonafides” on Tuesday.
Bernie Sanders will likely hang on to fight with Hillary Clinton until the Democratic National Convention this summer, but his time is likely shorter on SNL . To open the season finale of the show, Larry David returned to play Bernie Sanders one more time and it might turn out to be his final ride as the senator from Vermont.
NBC is awfully fond of Maya Rudolph and is of the firm belief that you should be too. (Can you blame them? Maya Rudolph is a delight! ) She’s been a fixture of the network on Saturday Night Live , Up All Night , and a one-off (well, sort of) variety show . Tuesday sees the series premiere of Maya’s new variety offering for the Peacock Network with Martin Short as her partner-in-crime, and it’s been revealed that the first episode of Maya & Marty will have an avalanche of guest stars.
Did you catch last night’s celebrity-stuffed premiere of Maya & Marty ? Of course you did, celebrities were there and you wouldn’t want to let them down by not watching at home, would you? One of the broadcast’s celebrity interactions featured Larry David having a friendly (well, maybe not that friendly) conversation with Martin Short’s uniquely named celebrity interviewer alter-ego Jiminy Glick.
Larry David is a lot of things. Comedy great, co-creator of Seinfeld , creator and star of Curb Your Enthusiasm , (available to stream anytime on HBO Now ). While he’s the master of the uncomfortable comedy moment, he’s also known for one notorious trait: he is a talker. Sometimes (most times) it does far more harm for him than good, but every so often, he’s able to use his ability to dig his way out of a hole, instead of burying himself deeper like he usually does.
Next month will mark the fifth anniversary of Curb Your Enthusiasm ‘s last episode . And by I mean last, I mean the latest episode, since Curb hasn’t really ended officially. This is typical Larry David, “ehhhh” decision-making at its best. To him, bringing back his beloved show is like the character Larry making a decision on which pair of pants to buy, and that’s why we love him.
