About Larry's David's 'Funny' Height

It may surprise you but Larry David was just as tall as Jerry Seinfeld. Yes, generally Jerry looked an inch taller, but Jerry also had more hair and better posture -- what did Larry have to counter those two?

Larry David’s height is listed on the web as either 5’11” or 6”. From what we have seen of Larry, we think he might have been close to 6 feet tall in his prime – his lanky build certainly suggested so.

But now in his 70s, he is sure to have lost some height – there was a time when he used to be just as tall as Jerry Seinfeld but is now clearly shorter.

Larry looks close to 5'10" nowadays as when seen with people like Jimmy Kimmel (5'11") and John Oliver (6") and some others.

The height of Larry David in his prime was

5 ft 11 in (181 cm)

His present height is

5 ft 10 (178 cm)

You know who wears sunglasses inside? Blind people and assholes.

A good compromise is when both parties are dissatisfied.

The real use of dates.

A date is an experience you have with another person that makes you appreciate being alone.

Thieves vs. neighbors.

I’d rather have the thieves than the neighbors - the thieves don't impose. Thieves just want your things, and neighbors want your time. [how about thieving neighbors?]

On religions.

I wasn't making fun of my father-in-law's religion. And even if I was so what, it's a comedy. Religion should be made fun of, it's quite ridiculous isn't it. Think how people spend their lives, they have no idea. They go around as if this is a fact. It's so insane you know. If I really believed that stuff I'd keep it to myself. Lest somebody think I was out of my mind.
