Lawrence Gene "Larry" David (b. July 2, 1947) is an American comedian. David started his Saturday Night Live career as a writer for part of the show's tenth season. David would later ascend to fame as the creator of the sitcom Seinfeld, which included SNL alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus (whom David met while at SNL). His SNL experiences would serve as fodder for the show; in particular, an episode showing character George Castanza (played by Jason Alexander) quitting and returning to work as though nothing had happened was based upon an actual incident that took place between David and then-executive producer Dick Ebersol. He later created the series Curb Your Enthusiasm, in which he starred as a fictionalized version of himself.
David came to greater prominence at SNL during season 41, where he made multiple cameos as presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. He also hosted once during that season, the February 6, 2016 episode. He hosted again on the November 4, 2017 episode of Season 43.
