The Larry Sanders Show 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998 / A seminal, must-watch comedy that served as a template for sitcom classics like Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office, and many more


If you’re a comedy fan watching The Larry Sanders Show for the first time, it’s hard not to compare it to some of the classics we’re spoiled with now. Traces of Sanders’ grumpy but likable persona can be found in Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David, while the show’s mockumentary format, while experimental then, is par for the course now. But even on its own terms, without the retrospective insight, The Larry Sanders Show is a genuinely hilarious and incisive take on dysfunctional workplaces, live television, and celebrity culture. There are levels to Sanders’ character, who is neurotic but narcissistic, kind but self-involved, that make every episode a funny and deeply interesting watch.
