Charlie Rose Tries, and Fails, to Figure Out Larry David

Charlie Rose sat down with Larry David over the weekend to talk about his Broadway debut in Fish in the Dark, and he attempted to understand the “real” Larry David but only got these responses: “Who the hell knows?” and “I’m like everybody else. I’m a jerk.” David manages to stay simultaneously uninterested and entertaining throughout the entire interview, in which he pays a visit to his childhood Brooklyn home, junior high school stage, and some of his earliest standup memories. Watch some outtakes from the interview below, in which Rose and his 60 Minutes colleagues look back on interacting with David as if he were some rare and endangered animal spotted in the wild: “It was the most fun thing I’ve had in a long time. I mean…we went in search of Larry David!”
