When Ramy Youssef took his talents to First We Feast to discuss several intriguing topics with “Hot Ones” host Sean Evans (via YouTube), he was asked about his past comments regarding the TV contributions from “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator Larry David. Youssef had high praise for David, having said, “Even if your favorite player isn’t Michael Jordan, the game is influenced by Michael Jordan.” After marveling at his great quote, Ramy responded, “So much of the format, whether it’s Seinfeld or Curb, I think every modern TV writer is influenced by it. Even if you’re trying to do something super subversive, you know that what’s happening in comedy now is what he put forward.”
Ramy may be right about his bold assertion and about the influence David has over the industry. The latter created two critically acclaimed comedy series with impressive scores on Rotten Tomatoes, and in the process, David earned two Emmy awards and 29 nominations. He has also won two Best Musical/Comedy Series Golden Globe awards, one for “Seinfeld” and one for “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
There is no denying that Larry David has impacted the industry. Now fans of the hit show “Ramy” know where the talented creator got his inspiration for some of the comedic charm witnessed within the well-crafted Hulu series.
