TV show description:
In this loosely autobiographical series, Seinfeld co-creator Larry David is a passive-aggressive, multi-millionaire living in Los Angeles.
Larry’s problems often arise from his petty neuroses and obstinence, much to the frustration of his put-upon wife Cheryl (Cheryl Hines). Larry’s friends include recovering alcoholic and stand-up comedian Richard Lewis, sex-obsessed manager Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin), Jeff’s often-angry wife Susie (Susie Essman), and Larry’s father, Nat (Shelley Berman).
Other semi-regular characters include Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein), and actors Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen and Wanda Sykes. The series is heavily improvised, with the actors working with only general scene outlines rather than scripts.
