Let's be real, shall we? This show is set in Los Angeles. When people say something is "New York Humor" they really mean Jewish humor. You know - neurotic, angsty, intellectual, irreverant, confrontational. We're a complicated people. But, we're funny damn it and we don't have much tolerance for euphemisms. Larry David is a comic genuis. He was also co-writer and producer on another little show chuck-full of New York humor - Seinfeld.
