On October 17, 1999, HBO aired a mockumentary special called Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm. Curb Your Enthusiasm's “Larry David” is an \"idealized\" version of the real Larry David. Sure, there are some obvious similarities between TV Larry and real-life Larry, but David told Rolling Stone that it wouldn’t be smart for him to be TV Larry all the time. Larry David didn’t want to be married on Curb Your Enthusiasm if he wasn’t married in real life. Larry David himself once put the odds of a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm at 6-1.
