Larry David doesn't want you to come to his new play, "Fish in the Dark," going into previews at the Cort Theatre on Feb. 2. He doesn't want himself to go to his new play. He doesn't want to because he hates Broadway, hates the theater, is doing this whole thing only to meet a woman, and knows he almost certainly won't anyway (although he did meet a woman -- the other clip here elaborates on that encounter.) 

What was so perfect about Larry David's appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" Thursday was a.) Dave didn't ask him whether there will be another season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (thank you, Dave, for not wasting everyone's time on the weariest most thread-worn question in show biz) and b.) Larry spent most of the interview un-selling his show. 

It was the unique un-selling proposition: Don't go to this play because it will be so bad, and the lead actor -- some guy named Larry David -- is so terrible. 

In any event, great interview. Go here for the full encounter, or just check out these two clips.
