The idea for Curb Your Enthusiasm was generated from a TV special titled Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm, which supposed to be a one-time project and collaboration between David and HBO. The network loved the special and soon produced the first season of the show which premiered in 2000. The show stars Larry David as a fictionalized version of himself. What makes the series special is that David establishes the plot and the subplot of each episode, but the actors themselves are required to fill in the blanks and improvise their lines for the most part.
Since its debut, Curb Your Enthusiasm gained widespread critical acclaim and a loyal fan base. Through the years, the show became one of the most appreciated in the decade and already has a cult status. Besides David, the show also stars Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman and J.B. Smoove as members of the regular cast.
Besides the core cast, numerous other celebrities made their appearance on Curb Your Enthusiasm starring as themselves or fictionalized versions of themselves. The guest stars included the main cast of Seinfeld, Rosie O’Donnell, Ben Stiller, Jimmy Kimmel, David Schwimmer, Shaquille O’Neal, and many more.
