Larry David Says 'Odds Are Against' A New Season Of 'Curb'

Another season would be pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

People who don't watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm" are probably thankful that the show is over and their "Curb" fan friends have to stop recommending it in that annoying way friends do. ("You HAVEN'T seen it?")

On Wednesday, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Seinfeld" creator Larry David told Howard Stern that he would love to do another season of his fully improvised HBO comedy series, but that it's not likely to happen. David has maintained that he's on board for more seasons. "I'm so attached to the show that I can't bring myself to say that there won't be [another season]," David told Stern. "I would say the odds are against it."

David, who began his career as a comedian, went on to talk about his early standup experiences -- bombing, dealing with audiences, knowing the very strange Andy Kaufman:

David discussed being a writer on "Saturday Night Live," and how he once got so fed up with his sketches being cut that he walked off five minutes before air time yelling at "SNL" executive producer Dick Ebersol. A day later, he showed up to work as if nothing had happened which, he told Stern, inspired a future "Seinfeld" episode:

The future of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is uncertain, but David is busy enough preparing his new Broadway play, "Fish in the Dark." The comedy, starring and written by David, opens March 5.
