Larry David b. 1947

Two of the most successful television comedies have the talents of Larry David in common. Co-creator and producer of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, the former stand-up comic got his start in the New York comedy-club scene, making his name with dry and off-kilter humor. David's work has been nominated for numerous Golden Globe and Emmy Awards, and Seinfeld won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 1993.
