Larry David is a seasoned American actor, comedian, writer and a producer. He owes a large chunk of his fame to his stint as a co-writer and co-creator of probably the best sitcom in the 90’s, ‘Seinfeld’. Larry David started small doing several odd jobs while struggling as a writer. Eventually, he got a writing stint in the early 80’s for the show ‘Fridays’ and eventually went on to be a writer and an actor for the comedy sketches to be featured on ‘Saturday Night Live’. And then in the late 80’s, he and Jerry Seinfeld came up with the idea for a sitcom named ‘Seinfeld’ and it became an instant classic, garnering quite a lot of fame all over the world.
During his career, Larry David also acted in some notable films such as ‘Second Thoughts’, ‘Radio Days’, ‘Whatever Works’ and ‘Three Stooges’. But his best roles remained the ones he did on TV as a guest and he somehow had a much more fulfilling career as a writer rather than an actor. Some of his best appearances on TV include ‘Entourage’, ‘Hannah Montana’, ‘The League’ and ‘Clear History’.
There were also some failures for which Larry was severely criticized for, such as his appearances in the series’ ‘Bowtie’, ‘Shaq’, ‘The Seder’ and ‘The Group’.
