Larry David uses MAGA hat as ‘people repellent’ in Curb Your Enthusiasm season premiere

January 21, 2020

As if Larry David’s noggin weren’t famous enough already, now he has found a new and original use for it: In the season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO on January 19, David covered his bald pate with one of Donald Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) caps—and the move was the exact opposite of an endorsement for the president’s reelection.

Instead, David referred to the cap  as a “great people repellent”—a way to discourage unwanted encounters with friends and fans; and put a quick stop to conversations, HuffPost reports.

He was so pleased with the results, he said, “It’s really coming in handy.”

Fans loved the gambit. On Twitter, one viewer said, “This episode was a master class in political humor. Not preachy or accusatory, but hilarious fan that both sides should be able to laugh at. I know I did. #CurbYourEnthusiasm”

Another said, “Larry wearing a MAGA hat as a way to make someone cancel all future involvement with him has got me sucked right back into #CurbYourEnthusiasm

Pretty, pretty good: Larry David narrates the ‘Go the F**k to Sleep’ sequel for grownups

September 20, 2019

When the news broke that Larry Davidbest known for his writing, producing, and acting on the TV series Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm—would be narrating Adam Mansbach’s latest profanity-filled “bedtime story for adults,” most people thought the casting choice was, umm … “Pretty, pretty good.”

Mansbach is the author behind blunt parenting favorites “Go the F**k to Sleep” and “You Have to F**king Eat.” The third installment in his series of “children’s books for adults” is “F**k, Now There Are Two of You” from UK-based Dreamscape Media—described as “an honest look at the reality of welcoming a second child,” according to a report by HuffPost.

David’s narration is a monologue from a potty-mouthed parent to a firstborn child about the new addition to the family. Given the comedian’s reputation as someone who isn’t overly sentimental about parenthood, it’s a match made in heaven, the news outlet raves.

“When I heard that Larry David was going to voice this book, I jumped up and down with joy—which was awkward, because I was getting a vasectomy at the time,” Mansbach stated in a press release. “David’s a f**king national treasure, and he did just as fantastic a job as you’d expect. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Among those who have previously narrated the books are actors Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston, Jennifer Garner, and LeVar Burton.

Both the print version and audiobook of “F**k, Now There Are Two of You” will be available on October 1.
