Is Larry David done with Broadway? Well that’s what the co-creator of Seinfeld told the New York Post.
Apparently the comedian and actor feels that he is not so good at the second part of his job Description. David figured this out while starring in his own Broadway play, “Fish in the Dark.”
“I suppose on paper I’m a real actor, but not in my head, ” he told the Post. “Much to my horror, my acting teacher of 40 years ago, Bill Esper, showed up one night. He seemed to enjoy my performance, but he’s probably a good actor himself. I was inspired to become a comedian because I was a bad actor.”
David went on to praise the man who succeeds him in the Broadway play, Jason Alexander. Ironically, Alexander’s character on Seinfeld, George Costanza, was largely based on Larry David himself.
