Curb Your Enthusiasm1 is an R-rated version of Seinfeld, and is actually the only comedic sitcom to ever make me squirm in my seat. Why? Because of the sole antics of one man … Larry David.

WARNING: Watching Larry David2 get himself into uncomfortable situations on the show Curb Your Enthusiasm can be extremely painful.

Larry David

When Larry David gets himself caught in bad situations, he rarely gets out of them. More likely than not, his character digs himself deeper and deeper into trouble throughout the course of the show.

It took a few episodes, but I finally realized that I actually enjoy this uneasy feeling I get watching him in stupid predicaments.

If you too, want to feel this discomfort while watching TV, then you should definitely watch Curb Your Enthusiasm. Start from season 1 though.

Larry David Being A Jerk

Five Things to Look out for in Curb Your Enthusiasm:

  1. An annoying theme song “Frolic” that grows on you (I get a chuckle out of it now)
  2. An annoying main character (Larry David is annoying looking as well)
  3. Great writing with plot twists like Seinfeld (but still a show about nothing)
  4. Very DRY humor (no laugh track; so it’s up to you to figure out what’s funny)
  5. Documentary-style filming (with acting that’s just “good enough” for TV)

And, as an FYI, Larry David was the primary inspiration for the George Costanza3 character in Seinfeld.

Product Description

The Pants Tent episode is the best.

Free 2:32 clip on iTunes.

That theme song “Frolic” even has an annoying name.
