‘SNL’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Parody With Larry David As Bernie Sanders Is Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Great

The last new episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm aired on September 11, 2011. That is simply unacceptable. Larry David has remained busy, starring in Broadway musicals, touring Civil War battlefields with his unimpressed daughter, and making balls jokes on J.B. Smoove’s birthday card, but all he’ll say about another season of Curb is that he hasn’t “given up hope.”

(There’s also that long-rumored movie.)

Until then, we’ll have to make due with SNL‘s “Bern Your Enthusiasm,” which was pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty great. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a Curb parody, with Larry as Bernie Sanders, Bobby Moynihan as Jeff, Cecily Strong as Susie, and Jay Pharoah as Leon. It ranks right up there with “Lincoln.”

He’s not wrong about the coughing into the hand thing…
