The Larry David Story (HBO documentary) -- premieres ??



A two-part documentary about Larry David, titled “The Larry David Story,” will premiere on HBO Max on March 1.

The HBO original doc captures David’s rise to comedy stardom, from his start in standup to co-creating “Seinfeld” to leading 11 seasons of the ground-breaking “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“Twenty-five years old, I didn’t know what I wanted to do,” David says in the trailer. “Well, what do you do when you’re talking and people are laughing? You do comedy.”

David continues: “I never thought of myself as being funny. Anything I was associated with that could be successful was a shock.”

Along with Jerry Seinfeld, David helped launch “Seinfeld” to becoming one of the most successful television shows of all time.

“My mother would call me up and go, ‘Larry, do they like you? Do they tell you you’re doing a great job?'” David says. “Yeah, Ma, they like me. The show is No. 1 in the country.”

Leaving “Seinfeld” after its seventh season, David created “Curb Your Enthusiasm” in 2000 after a one-hour HBO special titled “Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm” in 1999. The 11th season of the half-scripted comedy, in which David plays a fictionalized version of himself, premiered in fall 2021.

“I’m a total fraud. And the ‘Curb’ outlet for me is this guy I wanna be,” David says. “He’s completely honest, just the opposite of who I am, and it’s a thrill.”

Both parts of “The Larry David Story,” titled “American Jewboy” and “The Jewish Fountainhead,” respectively, will premiere back to back on March 1 at 9 p.m. on HBO Max.

I will certainly watch. I always enjoy a Larry interview, but hope they can also include those who know him well in addition, his friends and family. My dream interview would be his ex-wife. Don't know what sort of terms they are on.

This seems like the opposite of pretty, pretty, pretty good: HBO has scrapped The Larry David Story just hours before it was set to premiere on the premium cabler.

“The Larry David Story is being postponed,” HBO announced on Twitter early Tuesday. “Instead, Larry has decided he wants to do it in front of an audience. Stay tuned for more info.”

The two-part doc was set to premiere tonight at 10 pm.

So he really does have total control over at HBO. Dude can literally do whatever he wants whenever he wants.

Kind of shitty to pull the plug 8 hours before itís set to air. Oh well. I wonder if we will ever see this version of it.

Well that's disappointing. I'm sure the live version will be good, as he's usually a good interviewee (assuming that's how they would do it?), but I would imagine they had a lot of clips intermingled in the recorded version.

This sort of mirrors David's refusal to follow through with his stand up special as depicted in the HBO Larry David Special that preceded CYE. Nice going bald asshole!

That's a douche move.
Eh, I wasn't gonna watch anyway. I like Larry, but don't care about his personal story.
