Watch Larry David's Classic Gripes in New 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Trailer

11 September 2017 6:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the six years since Curb Your Enthusiasm's last episode, Larry David's distaste for everyday minutiae has only sharpened. The hilarious new Season Nine trailer unfolds like a greatest hits package. The famous crank angrily slaps an almost-empty shampoo bottle, becomes outraged over a broken shoelace, gets into a verbal altercation with a judge and tells a sobbing woman at a funeral to "shut up."

In what could be the funniest scene, David bickers with an office employee (Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein) for taking two days off work for constipation. »

Sky Atlantic have finally confirmed when they'll start airing the ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm...

A while back, HBO let everyone know that they'd start showing the long-awaited ninth season of Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm on October 1st. That's at the back end of next week, so UK viewers were starting to get a bit frustrated with Sky Atlantic, who'll be the ones airing it over here in the UK, as they hadn't yet revealed when they planned to do so.
