The Cast The show will bring back familiar faces like Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, and Jb Smoove, as well as a few others. 2. The Teaser This is quite possibly the best date announcement ever. 3.

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. »

Larry David Is Back and as Unhappy as Ever in ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Trailer (Watch)

10 September 2017 6:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judging by the new trailer for “Curb Your Enthusiasm” just released by HBO, everyone’s favorite misanthrope hasn’t changed one bit.

Larry David shushes a crying woman at a funeral. He knocks over a woman spraying perfume in a department store. He chases away two people who are kissing in front of him. “You’re allowed to be happy, but not in front of me,” he tells them.

“A grave injustice has been done here. We are no better than the beasts in the field!” he intones to a judge before committing the ultimate sin in court: Saying “yoo-hoo” to the judge, who’s none too pleased.

“You can’t yoo-hoo a judge?” David retorts.

It falls to “Curb” star Richard Lewis to deliver the ultimate judgment: “You’re devoid of anything that’s remotely caring or empathetic.” To which David naturally responds, “That’s a great compliment.”
