Larry David on Broadway Theater, ‘Seinfeld’ and Death Etiquette

In this article in today’s New York Times, Jason Zinoman interviews Larry David about his Broadway show, “Fish in the Dark,” a comedy that deals with a family patriarch on his deathbed.

So Larry David doesn’t want touching. He wants funny stories.

How many of us want funny stories?! A whole lot of us.

So please, start telling your friends and family how you want laughter over tears, and while you’re at it, don’t forget the ever important: buried, cremated, or donated? It’s all good..
