Curb Your Enthusiasm

Series 8 - 7. The Bi-Sexual

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Talk-show host, comedian and vocal lesbian advocate of gay rights Rosie O’Donnell meets Larry David at a New York art gallery. It turns out they both fancy the same woman, and the object of their affections is stringing them along.

Cue a Larry David tirade about the selfishness of bisexuality (“Half the population isn’t enough for them?”), though that doesn’t stop him and O’Donnell pursuing this free-spirited temptress. David, however, is forced to admit that his rival has “the lesbian advantage”.

It’s the kind of wholly idiotic situation only Larry David would ever confront and it leads him into a vortex of barmy situations, including a fight with a sushi bar owner about the depth and sincerity of his “dismissive” ritual bow and an illustration of the dire consequences of a refusal to have lunch with an old man.
