Larry David made our list of America’s Top 10 comedians

Because he’s a balding, neurotic, self-consumed, multimillionaire malcontent who reacts to most social interactions as if he just took a whiff of some really bad cheese. Because the only thing he hates more than these situations is himself. Because he’s the most hilariously doomed white-guy antihero we’ve ever seen, and has no problems taking on every sacred cow. Because we have no idea how much of this Larry David — from the HBO comedy ”Curb Your Enthusiasm” — is swiped from the real Larry David. And because both Larry Davids cocreated one of the best comedies ever, ”Seinfeld.”

We laughed at ”Are you my Caucasian?” (trying to bond with rapper Krazee-Eyez Killa on ”Curb”).
