Was a writer on "Saturday Night Live" (1975) for one season. In that entire season, David got only one sketch that he had written on the air, and it was the last sketch of the night.
Was a cast member of the TV series "Fridays" (1980). Another cast member was Michael Richards, who later played Kramer on "Seinfeld" (1990).
As he grew richer, with a Forbes-estimated fortune of more than $200 million for his role as co-creator of "Seinfeld" (1990), this otherwise hapless, former failed stand-up comic says that he developed an allergy to caviar, which "was the perfect metaphor for my life."
Was the inspiration for the character of George Costanza on "Seinfeld" (1990), although the actual surname is borrowed from Jerry's real-life acquaintance Michael Costanza.
Borrowed the surname, for Elaine's character on "Seinfeld" (1990), from a female Manhattan TV production friend named Terry Benes.
Father of Cazzie David (born 1994) and Romy David (born 1996).
Roger Ebert gave David's major motion picture writing-directing debut Sour Grapes (1998) a zero-star review (a rating he saves for especially bad movies he finds to be "evil"). David got his revenge with his new show "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2000), where a food critic (who just happens to use a thumbs up/thumbs down approach to his reviews) gets his thumbs accidentally broken by David during a dodge ball game. But Ebert loved the show, though he recalls wincing at the thumb-breaking scene.
The popularity of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2000) has resulted in the term "Larry David moment", meaning inadvertently causing a socially awkward situation, entering the American pop culture lexicon.
