Larry David back for more laughs
Larry David cancels a Girl Scout cookie order from the daughter of a beleaguered sports owner.
That one sentence alone does a good job selling the eighth-season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which airs Sunday on HBO Canada.
Curb Your Enthusiasm, of course, is a fictional account of the life of the quirky and prickly Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld. David plays a version of himself in Curb, which tends to be packed with celebrity guest stars who also often play versions of themselves.
Guest stars peppered through the eighth season include Ricky Gervais, Michael J. Fox, Jonathan Ames, Rebecca Creskoff, Gary Cole, Ana Gasteyer, Michael Gross, Harry Hamlin, Larry Miller, Robert Smigel, Aida Turturro, Jo Anne Worley, Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner.
Those last two people – Wilson and Buckner – are former Major League Baseball players who show up in the middle episodes of the eighth season, when the setting for Curb shifts from Los Angeles to New York.
