From 8/23 press release: HBO Renews CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM For A Twelfth Season
HBO has renewed the Emmy® and Golden Globe-winning comedy series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, starring Larry David, for a twelfth season.
Originally debuting on HBO in 2001 and with 110 completed episodes to date, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life. The series also stars Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Vince Vaughn, and Ted Danson.
Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming quote: “Larry outdoes himself season after season and always manages to come back when the audience needs him most. We’re thrilled for him, Jeff Schaffer, and our phenomenal cast to continue making us laugh and cringe in equal measure.”
Larry David quote: “Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life. In researching this multi-faceted, multi-talented man, I discovered that there’s more to him than I ever could have imagined: He speaks six languages, brines his own pickles, and spearheads a national movement to install a bidet in every home. I’ve also been told from numerous sources that he is the most generous of lovers. I am so excited to once again transform into this force of nature. I only pray that I can do him justice.”
The comedy series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life can precipitate a catastrophic chain of events. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and improvise lines as they go.
Season 12 Credits: CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is created by Larry David; executive producers, Larry David, Jeff Garlin, Jeff Schaffer; co-executive producers, Laura Streicher, Jennifer Corey.

DESPITE THE LAUGHS, THE MONEY AND FAME, LARRY DAVID SAYS HE STILL COULDN’T WALK UP TO A WOMAN IN A BAR – “60 MINUTES” SUNDAY
He’s made untold millions laugh. He’s a celebrity worth many millions of dollars. Yet Larry David says he couldn’t walk up to a woman in a bar and say hello. That’s what the famous comedy and television star tells Charlie Rose in a dynamic and humorous interview to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, March 1 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Asked by Rose whether his success as the co-creator of “Seinfeld” and the star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” changed him, perhaps has given him confidence, he says, “It gave me something that I didn’t have, but not in the way that people think… like a total transformation.
“It wasn’t that at all,” he tells Rose, saying he is still the guy in certain ways that he always was. “I still… to this day, I still couldn’t walk up to a woman at a bar and say hello… I don’t have that.” Watch the excerpt.
David shows plenty of confidence acting each night in previews of his own hit comedy play, “Fish in the Dark,”” which opens on Broadway next week. But he tells Rose of his childhood, where he says he never joined anything and his mother showed little faith in him.
“In junior high school and high school I did not participate in anything,” says David. “I didn’t even know, I swear to you, I didn’t even know there was a prom.”
This lack of confidence was compounded by the fact his mother didn’t have high ambitions for her son. “A mailman… she wanted me to work in the post office… that was her dream,” he tells Rose. “It said a lot to me. It wasn’t only that she said that. That’s how I felt about it.
“Zero, zero belief in myself. And it’s changed somewhat, but there’s still a lot of that in me,” says David.
Rose’s profile includes footage from the new play and clips from David’s television program. 60 MINUTES also takes David back to his old apartment and his junior high school in Brooklyn.
