Larry David on the copy desk

While watching the season finale of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” last night, I was struck by this line from Larry David:

“I’m not an inventor. I’m an improver. I see things that are wrong, and I improve them.”

Would Larry be a good copy editor? His persona is reminiscent of a few copy editors I’ve known. I can see him on the rim.



  1. I noticed that line in the show, too, but did not make the copy editing connection at the time. But, yeah, I can see Larry as a copy editor.
