‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: How the Editors Find the Comedy in the Show’s Unique Shooting Style

By Daron James

Discover the process of cutting the show’s signature improvisation into carefully crafted comedic gems.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is back. HBO is now airing its ninth season after a six-year hiatus, and the grudge-holding, socially awkward, fictionalized version of Larry David we’ve grown to love continues in a ten-episode order.

Interestingly enough, both Rasch and Corn are English majors rather than film students. With a distinguished appreciation for language, they’re unique as editors. For them, it’s about words and wordplay and how they can carve out an engaging tone from a massive amount of footage.

The comedy’s shooting style outlines a rare workflow for the editors that differs from traditional half-hour series. The two sat down with No Film School to share their experience about the Emmy-winning show.
