Daily Star Sunday - - BUSHELL ON THE BOX -

LARRY David began the new series of Curb Your En­thu­si­asm in a shower wrestling with a stub­born bot­tle of gel. He ended the show in the same shower get­ting chinned by his man­ager’s mis­sus.

He’d had a lucky es­cape. In the course of one episode, he up­set two les­bians, had a mul­lah slap a bounty on his head (just for writ­ing Fatwa! – The Mu­si­cal) and learnt all about the gen­tle art of “foist­ing”.

Curb thrives on the comic con­se­quences of petty griev­ances, as Larry ne­go­ti­ates the mine­field of mod­ern moral­ity.

Should a bloke hold a door open for a butch les­bian, for ex­am­ple? Will she be more an­noyed if you do or if you don’t?

And when she tells you she’s get­ting mar­ried but that she, rather than her femme fi­ancée, will be the bride, isn’t diplo­matic si­lence more ap­pro­pri­ate than ar­gu­ing the point?

Larry can’t help him­self. He cheeses off more peo­ple than Pat Phe­lan, bust­ing PC taboos with glee, but al­ways suf­fers for it. Email me at: garry.bushell@ dai­lystar.co.uk or write c/o Daily Star Sun­day,
