While Larry David said that he and Richard Lewis developed a brotherly bond, the relationship the dynamic duo used to have was more like that of David and one of his many “Curb Your Enthusiasm” foes. They first met long before David was escalating petty feuds by creating a “spite store” and hiring an orchestra to perform on one of his nemesis’ lawns. Lewis told The Spectator that he and David attended the same sports camp when they were 12. After David failed to make a good first impression on Lewis, they developed an intense rivalry. “I disliked him intensely. He was cocky, he was arrogant,” Lewis said. “When we played baseball, I tried to hit him with the ball.” David grated on his nerves so much that it ruined Lewis’ camp experience. “I couldn’t wait for the camp to be over just to get away from Larry.”

In a plot straight out of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” the comedians crossed paths again while working the NYC stand-up circuit. Lewis didn’t immediately recognize David but thought there was something vaguely familiar about him. When they finally realized where they knew each other from, Lewis said there was a lot of “yelling.”

On “Curb,” the pair could have resumed their rivalry, but instead, they forged a friendship that was pretty, pretty, pretty good. “I can’t tell you how loving Larry is — the best friend you could ever imagine,” Lewis told Vanity Fair.
