Larry David aims to be 'pretty, pretty good' on Broadway

'Fish in the Dark' is an ensemble play written by David and is due to start a run in March 2015. Interestingly for 'Curb' fans, the Brooklyn writer has said that his character in the play will be based on himself.

"[I play] somebody very similar to Larry David - it might even be Larry David with a different name," he told the New York Times.

"I didn’t think it’d be pretty cool to be in it. It’s not like I would go to the theater and look up on stage and say, ‘I could be in that.’ I didn’t think of myself playing the character, but of course I write characters very close to me," he added.

David is no stranger to Broadway productions and has incorporated them into previous scripts.

The exaggerrated version of himself that he plays in Curb Your Enthusiasm got a part in 'The Producers' in series four of the hit comedy.

Rehearsals with supposed co-stars with David Schwimmer and Ben Stiller formed the basis for much of that season's hilarity.

As for Curb, the LA based comedian has admitted that he may make a new series, but he is not sure when it will happen.

"...if I did do another season, this play would push that schedule back," he said.

The last series aired in 2011 and featured guest appearances from Michael J. Fox and Ricky Gervais.
