Larry David’s season finale of CURB tap dances off the screen while brilliantly taking advantage of the classic Dave Chapelle bit, Wrap It Up! All 1,000 puzzle pieces of the plot, including the “five-foot fence,” and Maria Sofia, are placed together “splendidly.”
What made this season truly special is that in a world full of politically correct comedy, Larry David continues to push people’s buttons. He equally goes after Donald Trump, Mormons, and the holocaust while still leaving room for poop jokes and spreading “penis awareness” (I never thought I’d combine all of those elements into one sentence). If that wasn’t enough, he has real-life Alex Vindman in a cameo role to make the outrageous jokes he sets up even funnier.
Watching CURB is like getting an awkward hug from someone you like. You kinda want it to end, but deep down, you’re happy to see the person, so you let it continue. I don’t know if Larry David is coming back for another season. But if this was the final episode, I’m glad David got to make his show one last time without being played off the stage.
Season 11 of CURB is now available on HBO Max.
