Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Third Season (DVD)
(HBO Comedy Series) Larry David has a charmed life--success, famous friends, a patient wife, a dedicated manager and a trendy new restaurant...so what's his problem? See Larry spike some brownies, recommend a deranged nanny, thwart an Alanis Morissette concert, rob a grave and get a kid drunk. Along the way he encounters Martin Scorsese, Cheri Oteri, Richard Lewis, Krazee-Eyez Killa, and the Holy Family...and manages to piss them all off.]]>
The third season of HBO's comedy sensation offers more of the same. "Not that there's anything wrong with that," to quote Larry David's other television series, a certain little sitcom called Seinfeld. Consequently, Curb Your Enthusiasm's junior year means more Larry (Larry David) and more of his hilariously embarrassing mishaps. It also means more of his patient spouse Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), avuncular manager Jeff (Jeff Garlin), Jeffs foul-mouthed wife Susie (Susie Essman), and assorted celebrity pals, including Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, Wanda Sykes, Paul Reiser, and Martin Short, all playing themselves (or, like Larry, versions thereof).
The theme that (loosely) ties these 10 episodes together is Larry's involvement in upscale eatery Bobo's, in which Danson and Michael York (yes, that Michael York) are co-investors. As expected, the restaurant will serve to complicate Larry's life in every conceivable way--and vice versa. But the funniest (and most profane) episode must surely be "Krazee-Eyez Killa," starring Chris Williams (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) as the fidelity-impaired gangster rapper to whom Wanda has become engaged. This riotous installment, which sends up Jewish, Italian, and African American gangsters alike, won an Emmy for Robert B. Weide's direction and features that old master-of-direction himself, Martin Scorsese, who first appeared in "The Special Section" (in which Larry bribes a gravedigger to relocate his mothers gravesite). It's also the episode in which Larry gets a hair stuck in his throat. That hair, which once belonged to someone rather close to him, will remain lodged there for the next several episodes, until a "divine intervention" in "Mary, Joseph and Larry" dislodges it once and for all--along with the last of Larry's dignity. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Many will remember him as the co-founder of Seinfeld. He proves here how valuable he was in the comedic relationship with Jerry Seinfeld.
Larry David plays a character of himself, one he describes as himself if he had no social skills. That results in many hilarious and cringeworthy moments that keep you coming back for more episodes.
I dont know how he does it but he finds a way to outdo himself. I love every season equally and recommend Curb to everyone i talk to who is a Seinfeld fan. Some people might not find him funny but if you enjoy Seinfeld you will love this even more - yes its possible!
Unfortunately, I find too much of myself in Mr. David's portrayals but continuing Seinfeldesque story lines keep you coming back for more. Some of the profanity and sexual themes feel uncomfortable to me, and I think, to Mr. David's character but I still laugh and keep coming back for more.
