Curb Your Enthusiasm Bernie Sanders SNL


“Curb Your Enthusiasm” was parodied on “Saturday Night Live,” with Larry David, the show’s creator, doing his Bernie Sanders impression. In the sketch, Bernie has a supporter at a rally who coughs into her hand before wanting to shake his hand, but he refuses, much like David would. Watch the “SNL” spoof of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” with Bernie Sanders in the video below.

Like “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Sanders’ Larry David ticks off his crew of friends like Jeff and Susie for not shaking the constituent’s hand. He’s also unhelpful to a woman who crashed her car and focuses on minutiae, like his character on the HBO show.

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” was the next show David created after “Seinfeld” ended in 1998. The show ran for eight seasons, spread out over 11 years and was critical success. Loosely based on his own life, David played Larry David, a semiretired comedy writer and producer, who had worked on “Seinfeld.” Much of the show focused on him creating embarrassing social interactions with others.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, David unveiled his spot-on impression of the presidential candidate in mid-October during a “Saturday Night Live” parody of a Democratic debate, which also featured Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton. From the outset, audience members and TV viewers alike were absolutely blown away with how uncanny David’s impersonation of Sanders was, from mimicking the Brooklyn accent and the wispy white hair and glasses to his exaggerated facial mannerisms and hand gestures.

Check out the video below of the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” parody on “SNL” with Larry David as Bernie Sanders.
