‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ is pretty, pretty, pretty Jewish

It has been a wretched several weeks, filled with non-stop death — of celebrities, like Prince and Muhammad Ali, and mass killings, such as the terrorist acts in Tel Aviv and Orlando. So, we are overdue for some lightness. That would be the announcement that “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will be returning to HBO for its ninth season, after a five year hiatus. Larry David, the show’s creator and star, has hardly been on sabbatical. The mere existence of Bernie Sanders, who turned out to be his doppelgänger, was enough to revive his career.
