28 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the standouts in a terrifically funny show. Without giving too much away, Larry winds up with a prostitute in his car, and the rest is unrivalled comedy. One of the many great things about HBO shows is that the characters and situations feel real and vivid, whereas conventional TV (ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) often feels artificial by comparison. This is very true of Curb Your Enthusiasm, a showcase for Larry David, who has a rare gift of taking an already funny situation and making it much funnier with his unique wit. The scene in which he introduces his "friend" the prostitute to the snooty gold club employees at the baseball game is surprising and hysterically funny, and also very reminiscent of Seinfeld. While the comedic qualities of Curb Your Enthusiasm are too plentiful to list, the free and unstructured nature of the dialogue and interactions, much of which is improvised, is perhaps its greatest strength. This episode is so funny it makes for a good ab workout.
