Larry David has scored great reviews for his Broadway debut.
Larry David’s new comedy Fish in the Dark opened at the Cort Theatre on Broadway on Thursday, with the Curb man playing Norman Drexel – a manufacturer of urinals. Norman is a socially awkward character, he’s petty and silly. Sound familiar?
Larry David has scored excellent reviews for his play Fish in the Dark
Norman is seemingly indistinguishable from his brilliant character on HBO’s Curb and it’s therefore no surprise that the audience, and most of the critics, have lauded this new play.

Larry David proves, once again, why he's one of the world's best sports fans.
The Los Angeles Kings capitalized on the New York Rangers' hangover from an energy-sapping seven games series with Chicago by scoring a 3-2 win over their east-coast rivals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The final few minutes were frantic and the Kings were unusually scrappy, though managed to hold on in a game that Rangers veteran Brad Richards knew was a missed opportunity.

"We had a chance to win," Richards told Sports Illustrated. "We had a great opportunity. Now we made it hard on ourselves."
Something big's on the horizon.
It’s been on the cards. Seinfeld did an AMA on Reddit in which he hinted at a secret project with Larry David – another one of the brains behind the phenomenal success of 90s sitcom, Seinfeld. Then he was pictured talking to Jason Alexander outside the iconic Tom’s Café, NYC.
What the hell is going on Jerry Seinfeld?
Seinfeld was in the mood for answering questions when he appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show. Usually so tight-lipped, it’s hard to imagine he had any other intention of whetting the public’s appetite for a Seinfeld-esque return.

Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and apparently Larry David too, were reunited at the restaurant made famous by the classic 90's sitcom
Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander helped make Tom's Restaurant a internationally-known hang-out when Jerry, George, Krammer and Elaine used it as their regular haunt on hit 90's sitcom Seinfeld. On Monday, 13 January, Jerry and George (who was played by Alexander) visited their old haunt once again, prompting rumours of a possible Seinfeld reunion.
Jerry Seinfeld was spotted with his two former co-workers
It wasn't just Seinfeld and Alexander who were there either, as series co-writer and Curb Your Enthusiasm mastermind Larry David was also allegedly spotted at the dinner, as was a camera crew catching their actions - or at least Jerry and Jason's. This was clearly no chance meeting and the presence of the camera crew has only escalated rumours that a follow on or potential spin off for Seinfeld could be on its way, however the more likely explanation is that the two were filming something much less exciting.
