#Fact
1Supported and campaigned for Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential election.
2Worked as a store clerk, limousine driver, Bra salesman and television repairman early in his career.
3Has a bachelor's degree in History from the University of Maryland and in Business Administration from the Robert H. Smith School of Business.
4Many of the stories in 'Seinfeld', such as George returning to a job he quit a few days prior, are based on things that really happened to him.
5Did not start performing stand-up until he was in his thirties.
6Served in the U.S. Army Reserve.
7Borrowed the surname, for Elaine's character on Seinfeld (1989), from a female Manhattan TV production friend named Terry Benes.
8The popularity of Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000) has resulted in the term "Larry David moment", meaning inadvertently causing a socially awkward situation, entering the American pop culture lexicon.
9Father of Cazzie David (born 1994) and Romy David (born 1996).
10When he was a stand-up comedian, he once walked on-stage and surveyed the crowd. Sensing no connection with them, he said, "This just isn't going to work," and promptly walked off the stage without performing any jokes.
11He carries a pad of paper and a pencil with him wherever he goes to record his ideas, which typically come from his real-life interactions with people.
12Once neighbors with Kenny Kramer.
13Was a cast member of the TV series Fridays (1980). Another cast member was Michael Richards, who later played Kramer on Seinfeld (1989).
14Despite his Brooklyn upbringing, has always been a New York Yankees fan. However, he's friendly with Boston Red Sox owner John Henry - a neighbor from Martha's Vineyard - and attended his wedding.
15Graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in history.
16Close friend of writer Damien Furey.
17Roger Ebert gave David's major motion picture writing-directing debut Sour Grapes (1998) a zero-star review (a rating he saves for especially bad movies he finds to be "evil"). David got his revenge with his new show Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000), where a food critic (who just happens to use a thumbs up/thumbs down approach to his reviews) gets his thumbs accidentally broken by David during a dodge ball game. But Ebert loved the show, though he recalls wincing at the thumb-breaking scene.
18Was the inspiration for the character of George Costanza on Seinfeld (1989), although the actual surname is borrowed from Jerry's real-life acquaintance Michael Costanza.
19Was a writer on Saturday Night Live (1975) for one season. In that entire season, David got only one sketch that he had written on the air, and it was the last sketch of the night.
20As he grew richer, with a Forbes-estimated fortune of more than $200 million for his role as co-creator of Seinfeld (1989), this otherwise hapless, former failed stand-up comic says that he developed an allergy to caviar, which "was the perfect metaphor for my life."

#Quote
1This notion I hear that [Woody Allen] doesn't direct, I mean, that's kind of ridiculous. He gets what he wants.
2If I tried to flirt with a woman and she didn't know who I was, she would run away.
3[on ever remarrying] It would be a silly thing to do. Why would I do it? Why would I want that contract? I already have kids. The best situation is being a single parent. The best part about is that you get time off, too, because the kids are with their mom, so it's the best of both worlds. There's a lot to be said for it. You get married, you have kids - you should plan this from the beginning. We're going to have these kids, then we'll get divorced when they're four. All right, six.
4When I was living in New York and didn't have a penny to my name, I would walk around the streets and occasionally I would see an alcove or something. And I'd think, "That'll be good, that'll be a good spot for me when I'm homeless".
5I don't think anyone really is interested in reading about my emotional state. It's not even interesting to me.
6I didn't cringe when I saw myself - I mean, sometimes I did, but it wasn't a big cringe-fest for me.
7I couldn't be happier that President [George W. Bush] has stood up for having served in the National Guard, because I can finally put an end to all those who questioned my motives for enlisting in the Army Reserve at the height of the Vietnam War.
8Even though the National Guard and Army Reserve see combat today, it rankles me that people assume it was some kind of waltz in the park back then.
9Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man - there's your diamond in the rough.
10Actually I walk around with the Emmy wherever I go, but I'm very casual about it.
11Trying on pants is one of the most humiliating things a man can suffer that doesn't involve a woman.
12[after winning the Golden Globe for best comedy series] This is a sad day for the Golden Globes. It is, however, quite a good day for Larry David. I suspect the wife will be a little forthcoming tonight.
13I guess I still feel that I'm a comedian; if I had to pick one thing that I feel like I could do, it would be that. That doesn't mean that I like it, but I feel that's what I am.

1Acerbic, neurotically dark humor
