Larry David Talks Going From “Poor Schmuck” To “Rich Prick” In ‘SNL’ Monologue – WATCH VIDEO
Larry David opened his “SNL” monologue by talking about how he went from being a “poor schmuck” to being a “rich prick.” See the video below of David’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
David talked about how he auditioned many years ago for “SNL” and was terrible. He then noted from those days to now he went from being a “poor schmuck” to being a “rich prick… without hardly a transition. David even joked about how women go out with him because he’s successful, not because they have fetishes for bald men.
This marks David’s debut as the hist of “Saturday Night Live,” though it’s hardly the first time he’s been on the show, and his affiliation with “SNL” goes back more than 30 years. More recently, as Gossip Cop has noted, David has been on “SNL,” doing a spot-on impression of Bernie Sanders that even includes the Democratic presidential candidate’s mannerisms. David’s hosting duties come just three days before the New Hampshire Primary, where Sanders is expected to easily beat Hillary Clinton.
But David’s connection goes back to Season 10 of “Saturday Night Live.” He was one of the sketch comedy series’ writers for the 1984-1985 season. It was at “SNL” where David first worked with then-cast member Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who he would cast just a few years later as Elaine on “Seinfeld.”
