Ranking Larry David’s Best Enemies On ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

12 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Noah Hawley says that Fargo may go the route of Louie with irregular seasons

28 June 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

As you know, most television series produce a season each year and typically it works out fairly well. There are some out there, either members of the audience or the show's creators, who wish that certain shows would be allowed to just pump the breaks every so often and refuel. In the case of Louis C.K. with Louie or Larry David with Curb Your Enthusiasm, they're lucky enough not to have... Read More »

Even ‘Late Night’ Host Seth Meyers Was Surprised By Donald Trump’s Political Ascendancy

26 June 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Seth Meyers knows a thing or two about American politics – at least, he sure knows how to write about them in a way that’s both deeply funny and very informative – but even the “Late Night” host was surprised by the year-long political ascendency of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“I’ve been wrong at every turn about how I thought this would all go down. I was right about [how] it would be Hillary, and then wrong about everything else,” Meyers recently told IndieWire, when asked if he could have possibly foreseen the wild way this year’s presidential election would shake out.

For the late night talk show host (and former “Saturday Night Live” head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor, another venue in which he often trafficked in political humor), the first moments of Trump’s campaign seemed like prime fodder for a joke or two, especially his »

Lorne Michaels on ‘SNL’s’ Future, Seth Meyers’ Partisanship, Recruiting Larry David and Not Apologizing for Trump

24 June 2016 7:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lorne Michaels is ready to get away from it all.

Not permanently, of course. Michaels has never been more powerful in television, as he oversees NBC’s late night crown jewels and produces buzzy comedies like IFC’s “Portlandia.” But after overseeing six episodes of NBC’s “Maya and Marty,” which came straight off the “Saturday Night Live” finale, he’s ready to take a two-week vacation. Then it’s back to scouting for new “Saturday Night Live” talent and prepping for the show’s 42nd season.

But before he hit the road, Michaels talked with IndieWire about the state of his ever-growing empire, which is gearing up to take on a historic election season.

Among the highlights: “Saturday Night Live” will likely produce several live primetime “Weekend Update” editions during the lead-up to the November election, just as it did in 2008 and 2012. Also: Michaels agrees that NBC’s “The Apprentice »

‘SNL': Lorne Michaels Shares Wild Story of How Larry David Came to Play Bernie Sanders

24 June 2016 5:57 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Larry David doing Bernie Sanders is probably the best televised impression of this election cycle, and the “Saturday Night Live” role kind of just cast itself. “Here’s what happened: In the first debate, I was at the host dinner, a bunch of people from the writing staff were in my office watching the debate,” “Saturday Night Live” executive producer Lorne Michaels told TheWrap. “While I was at dinner, a friend of mine emailed me and said, ‘Bernie Sanders is Larry David.'” Turns out, it was a common thought that evening.

Matchmaking Dad Takes Out an Ad to Get His 48-Year-Old Son Hitched: 'If You Like to Wear Heels, It May Not Work'

24 June 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last week, Baron Brooks couldn't figure out why his phone wouldn't stop ringing and why his Facebook page had suddenly been flooded with messages from available women wanting to date him. It would have been a nice problem for a single Jewish guy to have, except for one thing: The women were calling because they'd seen Baron's picture in a $900 ad taken out in an Idaho newspaper by his father, Arthur Brooks, 78, of Beverly Hills, California, who is determined to "marry off" his son and get a few more grandchildren. When Baron, 48, a Salt Lake City health food broker, realized what had happened, »

The “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” star is set to tape his Glick segment tonight, TheWrap has learned exclusively. The airdate for Seinfeld’s turn is subject to change, so let’s just call it “upcoming,” like our source did. Thus far, Glick’s “Maya & Marty” victims have been Drake, Ricky Gervais and Larry David.

Watch: Margaret Cho Calls Jerry Seinfeld a ‘Japanese Girl’ in ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ Teaser

21 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Crackle has released a teaser clip of the next episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” a runaway hit for the online content distributor.

In the passenger’s seat this week is Margaret Cho, your friendly neighborhood radical feminist, and politically incorrect comedian. Cho is known for speaking her mind and ignoring the critics, so this episode will surely be a doozy. The sneak peek features Cho doing her signature Korean accent, a caricature for which the Korean-American comedian has come under fire. Her parody of Kim Jong Il on “30 Rock,” which earned her an Emmy nomination, was criticized as minstrelsy by Time Magazine.

Luckily for Cho, Jerry Seinfeld’s car is a judgment-free zone, where she can mimic her people all she wants.

Jeff Garlin may have his hands full with the ABC TV show “The Goldbergs” and a new movie he wrote and directed for Netflix called “Handsome,” currently in post-production, but he can’t wait to make time to act in the the next season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“Anton was one of a kind,” Doremus told Variety. “Such an old soul who was one of the most sincere but also funniest people I have ever met.” Yelchin starred as a young student who falls in love with Felicity Jones’s character in the 2011 drama. He died early Sunday morning after being pinned by his car in his driveway.

“He taught me what being a humble and hard working artist is all about,” Doremus said. “His laugh was the best sound in the world, it was so contagious and comforting. He was always up to something to make you laugh especially if you were getting frustrated or being too serious. »

Longtime 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Ep Talks "Getting the Band Back Together" for Season 9: "It Won't Be Long"

17 June 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Now that Larry David has announced the return of Curb Your Enthusiasm, fans of his beloved HBO series have a lot of questions. Jeff Schaffer, who is David's right-hand man for the newly announced season nine, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter to answer some of them.   Namely, why now? The Seinfeld creator — who has spent his time since Curb pouring ideas into HBO's Clear History, Broadway's Fish In the Dark and a multitude of Saturday Night Live appearances, among other things — has always been carrying around his notebook and jotting down ideas, says Schaffer.  "You go out

Bingo! The 500 year old game in the movies and on television

17 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bingo has been around for year. Hundreds of years. After a quick Google search, we discovered the the age-old game was first played by the Italians in the 1500s. Of course, it didn’t become widely popular until may years later – not until the year 1929 in fact when Edwin Lowe visited a carnival in Atlanta at found an intriguing game being played. Originally calling it Beano, Lowe took the game to New York where it quickly became bingo after a player yelled out the iconic word after realising that he had won.

In the near 100 years since the game was first played, it has continued to steadily grow – whether it be old aged pensioners in retirement homes, or young people discovering the game via new online bingo sites following the rise of online gaming. The continued interest in one of the world’s oldest and loved games could have a »

Why Jb Smoove Thinks Larry David Is A ‘Different Animal’ Than Jerry Seinfeld

16 June 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

J.B. Smoove is having a very good summer. The comedian is thrilled about the recent announcement that HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will return for a ninth season, and he cannot wait to see himself on “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Jerry Seinfeld’s runaway hit of a web series, which premiered today on Crackle with Jim Gaffigan in the passenger’s seat.

“I don’t know what’s more fun, hearing that ‘Curb’ is back, or actually shooting the season and hearing it comes on tonight, you know what I mean?” the comedian told IndieWire by phone on Wednesday.

Known for his singular cadence, Smoove got his start on HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” wrote for “Saturday Night Live” in the early aughts and became a household name with shows like “The Millers,” “’Til Death” and Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Some fans may know him best from “Curb,” but Smoove was well known to other audiences long before that.

“’Curb’ definitely opened crazy new doors and new avenues for me, a new demographic, if I may say that,” said Smoove. It also changed what was expected from him on other projects: “People are more lenient, they’d rather see your take on things since you come from an improv based show.”

Earlier this week, Smoove hinted that “Curb” might be returning for a ninth season during an appearance on “The Rich Eisen Show,” saying Larry David had gauged his interest during one of the pair’s bi-monthly phone conversations. Smoove said he would make himself available. “It’s still fun to see Larry’s damn face, always good to see Larry.”

David is not the only “Seinfeld” creator in Smoove’s life, though he is admittedly much closer with David. Smoove first met Seinfeld while doing an episode of his short-lived reality show, “The Marriage Ref.” A car fanatic, Smoove was a big fan of the web series. “Every season I’m like, ‘Damn! When is Jerry gonna call me to do this damn show?’” Call he did, and the two Jerries had a grand ‘ole time.

“My real name is Jerry, his name is Jerry. Jerries are a very particular animal. Jerries are actually the leopard of the animal species. We have a very particular pattern of things we do, a very particular style,” Smoove said.

The show has been a surprise hit. (In early episodes, almost every comedian ribs Seinfeld about doing a web show). Now in its eighth season, the previous season took the internet by storm when President Obama appeared on the first episode.

Filming is fast and pleasant, according to Smoove: “Jerry picks you up in the car, you talk about the car for a few minutes. You get in the car, you go get coffee, you sit there and you talk about life, love, career, kids, wife, anything.” That’s a pretty accurate description of what happens in each episode.

The result is a very candid conversation between two comedians at the top of their craft about what they see as the world’s greatest profession. “The comedian is that person who can take tragedy and still be able to give an audience something to go home with,” said Smoove.

The two “Seinfeld” creators are more different than they seem, according to Smoove. “Larry’s a little more neurotic, Jerry seems very outgoing and has lots of energy. You can tell when his eyes light up, certain things he loves,” Smoove said. “Larry is very observant. Larry will walk around a party with his hand in his pocket and just sit there and nod his head and watch people.” After working with both, Smoove can see why the two worked so well together. “It’s the little nuances in life, the little bits of humor that people can relate to,” he said. “That’s what made ‘Seinfeld’ so amazing which also makes ‘Curb’ so amazing.”

Curb Your Enthusiasm” finds humor in the cringeworthy situations Larry David gets himself into. Almost every character on the show is a foil for Larry’s neuroses, but not Leon, the character Smoove plays. “Larry gets something from Leon that he can’t get from anybody else on the show. He gets honesty, he gets someone who has his back, someone who agrees with him, who can say: ‘You’re damn right, Larry.'” Some people claim the show is too painful to watch. “You know why? Because it’s too real,” says Smoove.

Smoove’s episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” will air sometime in the next eight weeks. It appears Seinfeld is just as secretive as David when it comes to his shows. Smoove has no idea what is in store for Season 9 of “Curb,” because “Larry is very secretive.” Even if he weren’t, Smoove says he never looks at the 6-7 page script outlines for the improvised show, because he “think[s] it would take the edge off the funny.”

What he can say about “Comedians in Cars” is that things will definitely get personal. “They’re gonna see a deeper side of Jb.” If his deeper side is as unique as his funny side, it’s going to be a very interesting ride.
