Larry David

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David is known for his dry, cutting humor. He and Jerry Seinfeld co-created Seinfeld, and David worked as the iconic television show’s executive producer and head writer. Many people argue Seinfeld is the greatest sitcom ever made, and the ‘90s sensation wouldn’t exist without Larry David.

David developed depression in the 1970s while serving in the National Guard. He couldn’t afford to see a psychiatrist. He was unemployed and living with his parents. However, comedy helped him get out of that rut. He started doing standup comedy, and eventually was hired as a writer for Friday’s and Saturday Night Live.

Although David has been living with depression for decades, he’s managed to lead a remarkably successful career despite his mental illness.
