Larry David's Steve Martin Tribute Speech

Follow by Email
Larry David at the Mark Twain awards 2005.


daflotsam : "I don't really like mystery". Somehow he makes even a seemingly simple sentence full of depth and humor.

Brandon : "I'm really quite a treat." 

Alex Marqués : Larry David is pure brilliance

Randy Bailin : The success of Seinfeld was about 70% Larry David. He was the head writer and the character George was basically Larry David (he didn't want to be in front of the camera). Curb Your Enthusiasm is Seinfeld on steroids without a studio audience.

Pat Tanackered : Suddenly I want to re watch curb

Drunk Sloppy : larry david is the only person you'll ever hear of to walk on stage during standup… scan the audience… and just say "nah" and walk off stage without without having done anything.  lmfao it suits him so well. LEGEND.

FRED ROGERS : curb seems so real, that when larry does anything, you think it is an episode of curb

Nathaniel Graham : Steve Martin should be ashamed of himself!

LaidIsGentleMen : I love how he throws in some very Steve Martinesque-type bits like "Can't hear you!".

Advocatus Diaboli : holy shit, that was pure gold.

Brandon Reese : Only Larry David could pull off this at a tribute speech! Goddam legend

Unfunny People In Cars Getting Stuff : Pretty, pretty good.

Reck Ssel : Having said that...

HeartlessGentleman : They should reenact this, with this being the narration.

Quincy Peabody : OMG.. I didnt know what a horrible person that Steve Martin is

Kimbob aLoola : "I don't really like mystery" hahahahahahahahahahahhaha this guy xx

Linda McDonald : Laughed too hard!!  Typical Larry.  He'd be PERFECT for a ROAST! lol!! 

chodeshadar18 : Wow Bernie Sanders is one funny guy!

reezlaw : I end up in tears every time... he's a genius, and Steve is laughing his ass off too

Nimesh Nambiar : Larry david makes me cry in laughter. Never heard of anyone who could do that. What a guy! and love Steve Martin too. This is vintage moment for me, two of my comedic icons!

Dani ele : Thats right I shimmied

Jonathan V : Funniest man alive

Susanne Galun : Larry David is a genius!

Grunthos The Flatulent : Is that George Steinbrenner? Sure as sugar sounds like him

MissLil Nova : Oh wow. You don't see Larry in a suit often. Or ever.

KinnArchimedes : I like the premise of this bit.

U. Yorubulut : i ve watched this about 1000 times.

Swag Dragon : that was amazin he killed it

dnatz58 : Can honestly say this is one of the funniest things I've seen on YouTube. Gotta check out more Larry David.

Marius Bancila : George Constanza + Jerry Seinfeld = Larry David

Testa : Whoever did not get to see Steve Martin live at the pinnacle of his stand up career missed the greatest comedian in history. If the standard is how hard an audience ever laughed during a stand up performance. (His movies don't come anywhere close to his stand up at his peak when it was new to the world) I've never witnessed anything like it. Everyone in the room was gasping for air from laughing so hard. He tapped the source of comedy. The god of comedy. Not one joke was told and people were dying from laughter.

Gregory Post : Honestly want to see a Steve Martin/Larry David buddy sitcom. They would be wonderful.

Short Fuse : i'd love to see a roast of larry david....come on comedy central...get on it!and can it with the justin bieber,james franco,charlie sheen bullcrap....roast people who deserve it not a bunch of hacks and nobodies

KEVIN PIASTRA: COMEDIAN : he's not describing steve, he's describing mel gibson

ddtnbn : Do you ever get down on your knees and thank God you have access to him and his dementia?!

Melinda S : dirty jew .. oh my !!! 📢

AdrianMutu87 : masterful

MrHappyBollox : I never thought I'd say this but I think it's time to boycott Steve Martin :/

GyroLamb : he acts like George here

Spaghettipolicy : Classic Larry David

NorthWriter : Watching Seinfeld is like drinking strong coffee. Watching Curb Your Enthusiasm is like mainlining espresso.

She Is Too-Nice : An utter riot

Mini tron : If Larry David doesn’t get a Mark Twain award it will be the crime of the century.

elijahthesamurai : After 2 minutes I totally phased out and stopped seeing Larry David and could only hear Jason Alexander as George Costanza doing this whole bit

Potatocrunch94 : Larry should also get the award.

James Brown : The little sniff before displaying his incredulity is genius.

technoway : I posted that six years ago, and yet this is still so fresh in my mind, I thought it was a year ago. This still makes me laugh very hard. I think the Mark Twain committee should figure it out eventually.

Brad Whitcomb : ...a very drunk and likely coked-up Robert Downey Jr.

Jack Fanburg : What is so good a about this speech is that I visualize Steve Martin actually enacting Larry's recollection.
