    I like Curb Your Enthusiasm but Larry David’s stand up really doesn’t do much for me. The monologue was not a good look.

    It’s cute that he worked with Pete Davidson a few times though because I think his daughter is dating him.

    • Pamela says:

      Agree so much. I like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but his stand up is just not good.

      I don’t think the Holocaust is something that should ever be joked about, but even so, his joke just wasn’t even funny. It wasn’t so much “tasteless” to be as much as it was just lame. There was nothing clever or witty about it. Makes it almost worse that he joked about something so horrific, and it wasn’t even worth it.

    Trying too hard, not funny.
    I’m not gasping or clutching my pearls. I’m not laughing. It was meant to be funny. It wasn’t.

    If Peele doesn’t win after all of the acclaim his film received I’m going to call BS on the Oscars.

    • Mia4s says:

      The Oscars are BS. Always remember that. However the Academy might consider it good from a PR standpoint to vote for him. The zeitgeist if you will. But never confuse that for the Oscars being about “merit”.

    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      Horror isn’t Academy’s favorite genre though. A handful of horror movies ever won an Oscar outside of technical categories. And by outside…, I mean – they also won for acting. The only scary movie that comes to mind is Silence of the Lambs, which won “the important” Oscars like Best Director, but it’s not a horror, so if Peele won, it truly would be groundbreaking.

      • Jerusha says:

        Silence is only the third film that won all five top awards-Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay. Following It Happened One Night and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        Rosemary’s Baby has only 1 Oscar – for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. It was completely snubbed – it didn’t even get the nomination for its amazing score (Rosemary’s Lullaby is an iconic horror melody). And given my name, how could I not mention Psycho? – it was nominated in some categories, but it didn’t win anything and Anthony Perkins was completely snubbed for the Best Actor nomination as was Bernard Herrmann for the score (who doesn’t know the melody from the shower scene?) Academy just doesn’t like horror movies.

  4. MM says:

    Instead of making holocaust jokes he should bring awareness and talk about the Palestinian apartheid and genocide going on so history doesn’t repeat itself.

  5. Adele Dazeem says:

    I feel like Larry David humor is not ‘ageing well’ as some say. What I found to be so funny and irreverent a decade ago just isn’t cutting it these days. His show has jumped the shark in my book.

  6. sunnydaze says:

    That monologue was horrible. Also, I had to laugh my butt off at the baby steps bit where Miley was trying not to pretend that was her whole persona two years ago. Hopefully by doing that bit she realized what an idiot she must have looked like.

    • Jerusha says:

      I actually thought Miley was the best part of the show, apart from AB’s Tony Bennett.

      • sunnydaze says:

        I agree, her performances weren’t bad, but I did find it amusing that entire bit was exactly how she dressed/behaved as part of that whole phase she went through (I think there are literally several photo shoots of her humping teddy bears and sucking on pacifiers while wearing pigtails and glitter). I don’t think that sketch was meant to be an ironic commentary on the absolute ridiculous persona she adopted for a few years there, which is kind of a wasted opportunity.

    • courtney says:

      I havent watched this yet and since its obviously NSFW ill wait but I must say the most disgusting, vile monologue award still goes to louis CK for child molestation thoughts. he is so abhorrent.

  7. jferber says:

    I’ve watched a few episodes of his show this season and have to say I found him unfunny, aggressive and particularly shitty towards women. I won’t watch anymore. What’s wrong with him?

  8. Joannie says:

    I️ didnt find anything he said offensive or in bad taste. People should lighten up.

  9. Calla Lily says:

    The problem wasn’t so much that Larry David’s monologue was offensive or in bad taste–it just wasn’t funny, and that was the real crime.

  10. MM says:

    Israelis giving millions to Palestinians? You must be joking right? OMG you are truly brainwashed….

  11. Shiny Halo says:

    Oy Vey Ist Mir. Not Oy Vey Schmear. Jesus Christ. Plus, he’s gross.

  12. benchwarmer says:

    I thought that was the funniest monologue I’ve ever heard. I wasn’t offended by the holocaust jokes either. I love him on Curb. Funniest show I’ve ever watched.
