Around this time last year, SNL presented a commercial parody centering around Totino’s Pizza Rolls, just in time for the Super Bowl. And it was a nasty piece of business, tearing apart the image of the NFL’s biggest game as a day for men and imprisoning Vanessa Bayer’s indefatigable housewife in the kitchen, where she was simply tasked with warming up more disgusting food. So when SNL aired another Totino’s sketch in last night’s episode, we simply assumed it would be a carbon copy of the first one. Boy, were we wrong.
If you're going to have the great Larry David host a full episode of SNL, there are two obvious areas of parody. First, you simply have to give him more to do as Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, whose unlikely showing in the recent Democratic presidential primaries have made David a regular guest star this season. Second, you need to riff on Curb Your Enthusiasm, his (possibly) late, great HBO sitcom that redefined cringe comedy. And in this case, SNL found a a way to combine the two.
Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David has been no stranger to SNL in recent months, between the 40th Anniversary and his Bernie Sanders impression, but this Saturday will be a well-deserved homecoming for the former staff writer. Or not, as David doesn’t really want you to watch anyway, judging by the first promos.
Seinfeld creator Larry David’s SNL cameos as Bernie Sanders (or just plain heckling Trump) have been a highlight of Season 41, and the next step is more than prettay, prettay, prettay good. David will make his hosting debut on February 6, joined by musical guest The 1975.
The iconic and still-relatable Seinfeld famously identified itself as a "show about nothing," but did you know that Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld envisioned the actual series with a specific focus? Or that Elaine didn't even appear in the pilot? Giddy up, it's time for the 19th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which grabs a cup of Monk's coffee to talk about nothing with Seinfeld!
Seinfeld is truly the gift that keeps on giving, whether bestowing all its episodes on modarn platforms like Hulu, putting Jerry and Elaine on the road together, or unveiling surprise stories of the past. Latest from the treasure trove is Jason Alexander’s explanation of Heidi Swedberg’s Susan Ross, whom the cast apparently hated working with, and conspired together to kill off.
A few weeks ago we were over the moon to learn that Jerry Seinfeld and his titular sitcom's creator Larry David would reteam for a "huge" new project in the near future that neither could talk about, though it seems the cat's out of the bag now. Find out what brings David and Seinfeld together again, and whether or not we'll see the finished product on TV in the future!
'Seinfeld' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' creator Larry David can be a tough nut to crack with regard to future projects, given David's most recent underwhelming HBO effort 'Clear History' took the place of a new season for 'Curb,' but is his biggest project yet in the works? Jerry Seinfeld himself claims to have begun work on a new collaboration with former partner David, but what could it be?
We've been tepidly curious of HBO's forthcoming original movie 'Clear History,' which to date has only shown us a brief teaser and photos of stars Jon Hamm ('Mad Men') and an unrecognizable Larry David ('Seinfeld'), but now the full trailer has shown us the light. In addition to an army of celebrity guests, the full 'Clear History' trailer has Larry David back on HBO at his 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
