hilarious satire of political correctness
2 December 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

Larry David is a genius when it comes to making comedy come from a misunderstanding, and no where is this gift of his more apparent than in episodes of Curd Your Enthusiasm like this one. Here, we see Larry's career and lifestyle being damaged by one of these said misunderstandings that is not only sparked by a humorous set of miscommunications, but also a hyper sensitive reaction towards a word that is deemed highly offensive, leading to a rumor that he is actually a dangerous, wife beating misogynist. This is amusingly politically incorrect satire cloaked in a suit of well constructed situational comedy and classic Larry David wit.
