Ricky Gervais turns up on August 14
HBO revealed plotlines for the four August episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" on Wednesday and we know when Larry David's sure-to-be–classic showdown with Ricky Gervais about respecting bread airs: August 14.
Apparently, Jeff (Jeff Garlin) will try to woo "The Office" co-creator as a client — something that David is obviously going to mess up somehow. (Who are Jeff's other clients anyway?)
Also, the action shifts to New York due to events that happen in the August 7 episode. In our recent interview with "Curb" writer David Mandel, he said the cause for the move to NYC is "grudge-related" or perhaps "grude-adjacent." Having seen the episode, we can further reveal that it is also guest star Michael McKean–related.
