Curb Your Enthusiasm (TV Series)

1999 –

Comedian Jeff Garlin was in studio from The Goldbergs and Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Howard says no one can believe he hasn’t seen Curb Your Enthusiasm yet.  Robin said she definitely can’t believe he hasn’t seen it yet as it’s so good.  Howard said he met Larry David once who told him he was a big fan of the show.  Jeff had a stroke during the first season of the show, and he says if you watch that season you’ll see him looking like Baron Von Stroke.  If it would have happened in the 3rd or later season, Larry would have been more confident, and they would have used his handicap as a joke on the show.  Now he’s doing yoga, meditating and not eating any sugar and is doing great.  He said he was woke up dizzy and communicating all of a sudden like Silent Running.  He’d had back surgery, and was on meds, but went to hospital and they confirmed he’d had a stroke.

Jeff started Curb Your Enthusiasm with Larry David after he’d done Seinfeld and Sour Grapes.  They were coming up with an idea for an HBO special, and Jeff’s idea was to make a show about the making of an HBO special, and that would be the special.  The HBO executive heard the pitch and said “How can I NOT do that?” and then it was turning out so well they made it into a series.

Jeff Garlin was in studio in 2014, and he talked doing a movie with Julia Roberts called Full Frontal, and she was really rude to him.  When he asked what her problem was with him, another actor said she said when she saw him, she thought he’d be someone she’d see at dinner at not like, and he’s thinking “what the fuck does that mean?”  Then he had a scene with her where he made a joke that made her laugh and she liked him after that, but he says it’s too late-he has no use for her.   She was making Mona Lisa Smiles and  doing press for it when he told this story and it made big news in The New York Daily News and The Enquirer.  Later, Julia was plugging Ocean’s 11, and was asked about Curb Your Enthusiasm. She said “There are only two types of people in the world, ones, who watch the show, and ones who don’t and the ones who don’t are idiots.” and then Jeff found out that George Clooney had said that, and she was just repeating what she’d heard.
