Even when he has things to promote, Larry David doesn't usually turn up on a ton of talk shows, but the writer/actor went on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his new HBO movie Clear History and it proved to be exactly the kind of uncomfortable, funny experience you come to expect a Larry David interview to be.
Check out the rest of the interview below:
Welcome to the latest installment of Tragedy Plus Time. Each segment will focus on a particular ‘life crisis’ – sometimes globally tragic, sometimes more of a personal affair – and we’ll explore how many of the comedians we know and love have dealt with it.
One of my biggest failings as the class clown growing up was never having a really good response to being made fun of.

After every season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David says, "I never want to do this again," but the President of HBO claimed that this didn't happen for the first time ever after the most-recent season, and was quoted last year as saying he's "cautiously optimistic" about a Season 9 of the long-running pay-cable show.
