Larry David Talks About his Return To Stand-Up Comedy With Rolling Stone
Who would’ve thought that you’d go from seeing Katy Perry to Larry David on the cover of Rolling Stone within a few weeks? Just in time for Curb Your Enthusiasm’s 8th season kick off, a cover story on the neurotic comedian/writer (also half responsible for the birth of Seinfeld) appears on the cover of Rolling Stone’s latest issue, which hits stands on July 22.
David had a lot to say in the piece about the two shows that brought him fame and about life as a divorcee. However, it’s what he had to say about his regained interest in performing stand-up comedy that caught our attention.
When discussing his pre-Seinfeld stand-up career, David revealed that he’s currently writing material for his return to the stage. “I think it would be a great experience to be able to go up and have an audience of fans. It would be very different for me, and it’s something that I’ve never experienced,” David admitted. It comes somewhat as a surprise that David hasn’t performed on stage in a while. Then again, between Curb Your Enthusiasm and the occasional movie appearance, it’s not like he’s had that much free time on his hands. Either way, we’re excited about the possibility of seeing David perform stand-up comedy again.
While the new Rolling Stone issue with David on the cover hits stands on July 22, you can read excerpts from his interview online. The cover story also interviews David’s Curb… co-stars, his close friends, and even his ex-wife Laurie. Curb Your Enthusiasm airs on Sundays at 9pm on HBO.
