Did You Know?

Goofs

Early on, after Larry and Jeff exit the initial HBO meeting and are walking to the elevator, you can clearly see Larry reach for the elevator button, hesitate, then move his finger up a couple inches and press it into empty metal above the button. This was presumably done to prevent the elevator doors from opening during filming of the scene. See more »

Absolutely Hilarious!
25 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this special for the first time on the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" season one DVD. As an avid fan of "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" I was very excited to see the "prequel" to the HBO series. It did not disappoint. It was immediately obvious to me why HBO decided to pick up the series. It was absolutely hilarious! I can, however, see why Larry David was a failed stand-up comedian. His sense of humor is not for everyone, but if you are a fan, you will love this. People often talk about his offbeat sense of humor, but his facial expressions are also hilarious. There is one scene that I watched five times in a row and laughed so hard, I got a cramp in my side. I'd like to tell you more, but I don't want to give anything away. All I can say is ENJOY!
