“Curb” is coming to the cheap seats.
As the show’s creator and star, Larry David, might say: “Pretty good. Pret-ty, pret-ty, pret-ty good.”
The irreverent quasi-autobiographical comedy by the co-creator of “Seinfeld” is currently in its seventh season on HBO. The series has generated heaps of buzz this season because one plot line has the "Seinfeld" cast – Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George – reuniting.
Despite the show’s popularity, it has sometimes become a lightening rod for criticism.
Last month, the Catholic League panned an episode that featured David accidentally splashing a portrait of Jesus Christ with pee – saying it was offensive to Catholics.
"Was Larry David always this crude? Would he think it's comedic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother?" Bill Donohue, the League’s president, had asked.
"Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself,” HBO said in a statement.
“The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious."
