Curb your enthusiasm! Here's why HBO CANCELED 'The Larry David Story' hours before premiere
Larry David requested HBO to push the release of the documentary that covered his journey from a standup comedian to a television star
It hasn't been long since HBO announced a documentary series on Larry David. Titled 'The Larry David Story,' the HBO miniseries is a deep dive into the comic's past, covering his journey from an "unfunny Brooklyn kid" to the co-creator of 'Seinfeld' and star of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.
Told in two parts, namely 'The American Jewboy' and 'The Jewish Fountainhead,' here's the official synopsis of 'The Larry David Story': "For over three decades, award-winning producer/writer/comedian Larry David has been one of TV's defining talents. Now, this insightful two-part documentary finds the 74-year-old sitting down with friend/director Larry Charles for a peek behind the proverbial curtain, as David gets candid about his personal and professional highs and lows, from his humble beginnings as an unfunny Brooklyn kid to becoming America's favorite misanthrope. In between reflecting on his bumpy road to success – and hit series “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” – David shares his thoughts on everything from metaphysics to parenthood. Genuine, hilarious, and eye-opening, THE LARRY DAVID STORY shines a new light on the infamous cynic who remains a singular voice in comedy today."
However, HBO has pushed the release date of 'The Larry David Story' after the legendary comic and TV star requested them to do so, wanting to screen it to a live audience. Breaking the news hours before the premiere, the network has asked fans to stay tuned for more information.
Sources close to David say that he intends on making the screening an interactive session and that it could include a live stage version of the show. 'The Larry David Story,' apart from giving us a peek into the lives of one of the funniest men on the planet, will also be a blunt tell-all tale. However, the move doesn't come as a shock to those in showbiz, with one veteran even calling David "the most neurotic person they've ever met."
We end this story with a simple but disappointing note for the fans: Curb Your Enthusiasm.
