Lawrence Gene David, an American comedian, writer, actor, director, and television producer, was born on July 2, 1947. For the first seven seasons of the sitcom Seinfeld, which he and Jerry Seinfeld created, David served as head writer and executive producer. He furthered his notoriety by creating and starring in the HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm as a fictitious version of himself. Since the show’s 1999 pilot episode, he has written or co-authored the stories for every episode.
Two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Individual Achievement in Writing in a Comedy Series were given to David in 1993 for his work on Seinfeld. Having previously performed stand-up, he transitioned into television comedy, writing and starring in ABC’s Fridays and temporarily contributing to Saturday Night Live. He has received three Golden Globe nominations in addition to 27 Primetime Emmy nominations. In a 2004 British poll to choose “The Comedian’s Comedian,” comedians and industry insiders ranked him as the 23rd greatest comedy star ever. In 2010, the Writers Guild of America presented him with the Laurel Award for TV Writing Achievement.
Larry David Early Life
On July 2, 1947, Larry was born in Brooklyn to Rose and Mortimer “Monty” David. Ken is the name of his elder brother. His relatives are Jews. Larry first went to the University of Maryland, then Sheepshead Bay High School. He belonged to the Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity in college. He discovered in college that he could make people laugh simply by being himself.
He earned a history bachelor’s degree upon graduation. After graduating from college, David joined the US Army Reserve and took on a number of odd jobs, such as limo driver and store clerk, all the while honing his stand-up routine at night. He wrote for and appeared in the ABC sketch series “Fridays” from 1980 to 1982. From 1984 to 1985, he worked as a writer for “Saturday Night Live.” During his tenure at “SNL,” he notoriously only had one of his sketches air, and it did so at the show’s final time slot at 12:50 AM.

Unfortunately, following his divorce from his ex-wife Laurie in 2007, Larry’s net worth suffered significantly. According to rumours, Larry gave Laurie half of his then-current net worth. A $200–300 million settlement was reached as a result, and it includes potential future syndication earnings from both “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Larry David Personal Life
Laurie Lennard and David were wed on March 31, 1993. Cazzie Laurel (born May 10, 1994) and Romy March, their daughters, are their only children (born March 2, 1996). Using the grounds of irreconcilable differences and asking for shared custody of the couple’s two daughters, Laurie David filed for divorce on July 13, 2007.
David and Bernie Sanders were shown to be distantly connected via a genealogy study on PBS’s “Finding Your Roots” in the summer of 2017. Sanders, according to the comedian, is “a third cousin or something.” This was a surprising coincidence given that David has frequently appeared as Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live” since 2015.
