In 1998, he wrote and directed a movie called ''Sour Grapes'', which was a failure. In 1999, he made a one-hour long special for {{Creator/HBO}}, called ''Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm''. The special was a FauxDocumentary about him preparing for an HBO special, and eventually weaseling out of it. It was originally envisioned as a one-time project, but it was so successful, that in 2000, David created ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'', where he plays himself as a selfish, annoying, neurotic JerkAss. As of 2012, ''Curb'' had eight seasons, with [[BritishBrevity ten episodes each]], due to David writing all the episodes. In 2009, he played the main role, a misantrophic LemonyNarrator, in the Creator/WoodyAllen film ''WhateverWorks''. In 2012, he appeared in the ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' movie, playing a nun. In 2013, he wrote and starred in the HBO film ''Film/ClearHistory''. In 2015, he returned to SNL for guest appearences, playing presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and hosted on February 6, 2016, becoming the first cast member from ''Fridays'' to host ''SNL''[[note]]originally, Michael Richards was supposed to host back in 1994, but was replaced with Nancy Kerrigan[[/note]] and the second ''SNL'' writer after ConanOBrien[[note]]who was only hired as a writer and, despite appearing as a background character in most sketches, was never hired as a cast member[[/note]] to come back and host.

* SoMyKidsCanWatch: He guest-starred in an episode of ''Series/HannahMontana'' along with his daughters, because they're fans of the show.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: In ''Seinfeld'', apart from George, Kramer was based on David's neighbor Kenny Kramer, and Elaine is a CompositeCharacter, partially based on women who David and Jerry Seinfeld dated. Several ''Seinfeld'' plots were based on David's real-life experiences, such as George quitting his job and trying to return as if nothing had happened (David did that when he was a writer at SNL).
** Even worse was when Jason Alexander wanted to change an element of what George did, basically saying that ''no one'' could be that selfish. David replied out that he had done exactly what George was written as doing in real life.

He began his career as a [[StandUpComedy stand-up comedian]], and was a writer for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' between 1984-85, without much success. Most of the sketches he wrote were either aired after Weekend Update (which is where a lot of mildly funny and/or experimental sketches [i.e., the short films -- at least until Andy Samberg's Digital Shorts broke that rule] go), left to rot in the dress rehearsal tapings, or not even considered for broadcast. Prior to his unhappy stint on ''SNL'', Larry David was a cast member on the ABC knock-off of ''Saturday Night Live'', ''Fridays'' (which was where he first met Michael Richards -- the actor who would later be known as Cosmo Kramer), where Larry David was more involved in the sketches (he was one of the repertory players, along with Richards). His recurring characters on ''Fridays'' include Rabbi Feinberg of the Matzoi Rabbis (along with Bruce Mahler)[[note]]the Matzoi Rabbis were a pair of rabbis who taught people self-defense, often breaking stacks of matzo bread and were depicted as kung-fu masters and James Bond-style secret agents in two separate movie parodies[[/note]] and Sully Muller (a temp worker who covers jobs that don't normally call for a temp worker, like a speaker for The National Organization for Women, a lawyer during a high-profile murder trial, a member of TheBeatles, and the U.S. Secretary of State). David also played Larry Fine on ''Fridays''' take on TheThreeStooges (Moe was played by Bruce Mahler and John Roarke was Curly), which have the trio as bumbling burnouts trying to get high off everything from marijuana to cocaine.
