Larry David Doesn't Actually 'Get The Appeal' Of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

Larry David is opening up about his long-running career and more in the new issue of GQ magazine.

Here’s what the 72-year-old show creator had to share:

On his grumpy demeanor: “People are under the wrong impression when it comes to me being happy or not. I think most people think that I’m miserable. Or that I’m a very disgruntled person. But I’m not. I have a very good disposition.”

On Curb Your Enthusiasm: “I really don’t get [the enduring appeal], other than—and it’s not very profound—it’s funny. And when something’s funny. People like it.”

On feeling under accomplished in stand up comedy: “I suppose it’s always been somewhat unresolved in my head. That I didn’t do it the ‘right way.’ I used to think, when I was younger, that this was what I was meant to do. That this was my calling, stand-up. I guess it still kind of bothers me that I haven’t conquered the form the way I thought I would.”
