Before last night’s “Ricky Gervais meets Larry David” program on Channel 4 here in the UK, I would think Larry David was a virtual unknown in this country, with Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthuisasm both buried in past midnight slots by the BBC on the off chance that someone might find something foreign funny. What with him never having a catchphrase or being seen in heat magazine, they probably thought the UK wouldn’t take to his work. Anyway, I went to buy season 3 of Curb today (because my boss keeps promising to lend it to me but always “leaves it at home”! yeah right, she probably thinks I won’t give it back to her. and now if I ever do it get it from her I won’t! Out of spite!! Grrrr!!) and lo and behold, The first three seasons of Curb your Enthusiasm sit atop the Amazon UK DVD chart, which is updated daily. I haven’t seen advertising that effective since… Kerry Katona told me to get down to Iceland.. or something!
