  • Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 Teaser Trailer Debuts

David and Sanders, both Jewish Brooklyn natives, have always had strikingly similar aesthetics, and the former impersonated the latter on Saturday Night Live during the 2016 campaign to great fanfare.

David came to the realization while filming an upcoming episode of the PBS show, Finding Your Roots, hosted by historian Henry Louis Gates.

David, who returns to his hit HBO show "Curb Your Enthusiasm" on October 1, told the Television Critics Association press tour Wednesday that he's been told to keep the connection secret until "Find Your Roots" episode airs, but he has seen an advance screening.

"I was very happy about that", David said, according to Variety. "I thought there must have been some connection".

ME approves of President Trump slightly more than other states
All told, Trump has maintained job approval ratings of more than 50 percent in 17 states over the first six months, Gallup said. The Trump impeachment support is unprecedented for a President who has held the job for such a short time.


The comedian said that the whole idea of him playing Sanders came during the first Democratic Party presidential debate previous year. When Ari Emmanuel, the marquee Hollywood agent, called David to float the idea, David just did his best Sanders impression over the phone.

David couldn't remember the exact nature of their relation, but said Sanders was "like a third cousin or something". At one point, David says, he began talking to his agent in Sanders' voice; his agent, Ari Emanuel, got him in touch with SNL producer Lorne Michels, and the rest is history.

"Then I said, 'You know, it would be a good thing for Saturday Night Live,' not thinking in a million years [it would happen]".
