Christmas causes no end of difficulty for Larry: country club tipping puts him in an uncomfortable situation, dealings with his maid and gardener cause a rift (further deepened by a web of lies meant to help Jeff), and the accidental destruction of a manger scene leave him on the outs with Cheryl's family.

Each half-hour episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm features verite-style footage of David (playing himself) at home, at work and around town, as he gets into predicaments with fictional and real-life personalities. With cast regulars Jeff Garlin and Cheryl Hines reprising their roles, the series features appearances by guest celebrities playing themselves or character roles.
The series blurs the lines between reality and fiction, as David (playing himself) and a cast of real and fictional characters are followed around Los Angeles by a ubiquitous camera that chronicles the private, often banal world of a (relatively) public man.
Having evolved from the 1999 HBO special Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm, this series proves how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life-a trip to the movies, a phone call, a visit from some trick-or-treaters-can precipitate a "Murphy's Law" chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. Like George Costanza in Seinfeld, the protagonist of Curb Your Enthusiasm has a knack for getting himself into uncomfortable situations that end up alienating him from peers and acquaintances.
To keep the narrative fresh and spontaneous, Curb Your Enthusiasm is shot without a script; the cast is given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go. The result is an unpredictable format that's unlike anything else on TV.
