Top Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes all telly addicts should watch

Show creator, Larry David 

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “the 19th greatest television series ever made” and beloved by comedy fans across the globe (each of its 9 seasons has scored over 70% on Metacritic), Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO) is one of the funniest comedy shows of the 21st century. 

The Seinfeld co-creator’s unique show, in which he plays a fictionalised and grumpier version of himself, has been running since 1999. The stellar cast, which includes Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin and Susie Essman, each improvise their dialogue within a tightly constructed outline of the story written by David himself. Naturally, this leads to some genuinely hilarious comedy gems, as well as cringeworthy moments of embarrassment that are all too relatable within every scene. 

Spanning 17 years right from the turn of the 21st century, Curb Your Enthusiasm is premium binge watch viewing! There are so many hilarious moments from each of the seasons, but what are the top five episodes from the overall series that all telly addicts should watch? In no particular order, let’s find out!  

The Doll - Season 2
“The Doll” is awkwardly hilarious and the perfect example of what a top form Curb episode looks like. Each of the story threads within this episode are hilarious on their own, but the fact that they all converge nicely to give a satisfying ending is what makes this episode one of the best. 
Larry and best friend Jeff are basically trying to make both Susie Essman and the wife of the president of ABC happy with a doll, so the pair have to veer back and forth between them. It’s pure farce, but we get some classic moments of Susie losing it with Larry (who can blame her?) and a hilarious case of mistaken identity for Larry (who ends the episode making a beeline for a bathroom window!). 

The Shrimp Incident - Season 2
Disturbed by what he believes is a lack of shrimp in his Chinese take-out following a mixup, Larry becomes suspicious of HBO executive, Allan Wasserman. Convinced that he has stolen the shrimp from his order, Larry later has to meet with him to pitch a show and things reach a hilariously awkward boiling point. It’s classic absurd and pedantic Larry - he’s attached real significance to Wasserman’s “reckless abandon” and won’t let up until his point has been made. 
As if that wasn't enough, Larry goes on to make yet another social faux pas during a poker game with his neighbours (one which he's unlikely to be invited back to again), making this not just one of the funniest Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes, but also one of the funniest scenes in television to portray a poker game. 


The Carpool Lane - Season 4
Honestly, there’s so much greatness within this series that it would be impossible to define just one episode as the best, but The Carpool Lane stands a good chance of being that. It’s comedy gold the whole way through, particularly since it features Larry’s dad (played by legendary comedian Shelley Berman). 
What makes this one stand out is that it puts Larry in some pretty unfamiliar situations that we never would’ve expected him to be in in the first place. It starts out with Larry making an ill-advised decision to purchase a questionable substance in order to treat his dad’s glaucoma. Next thing you know, he’s made yet another questionable decision and hires an escort to drive the carpool lane to a baseball game. In the end, all three manage to find some common ground despite the absurdity leading up to it. 

Palestinian Chicken - Season 8
The season 8 episode that proved that Curb was still Curb, this hilarious, chicken-focused episode sees Larry and Jeff involved in religious conflict and the breakdown of Larry’s golf tournament team as they prepare for an important game. This being Larry David, of course it’s going to touch on some potentially inflammatory topics, however both Larry and Jeff are prepared to ignore the conflict and go to a Palestinian restaurant because the chicken really is that good. 

The Grand Opening - Season 3
By the time season 3 came along, we had a pretty good idea of the things that the belligerent, easily-irked Larry shouldn’t be involved in. Being involved in the restaurant industry is high on the list, and The Grand Opening shows us why! 
Larry decides to become a restaurant investor and faces a multitude of problems in the run up to the big day. After discovering that his fellow pro-bald chef is in fact a “toupee-donning liar”, Larry fires him only to end up with a French chef who suffers from Tourette's syndrome. Not only does this chef burst into profanity at any given moment, he also refuses to cook salmon or allow certain foods in his kitchen, which - as you may have already guessed - is open to the dining area. It’s pure Curb chaos, but still manages to surprise us all with a very rare, but much needed, happy ending.
