Larry David

The most famous bald head in comedy definitely belongs to Larry David. David is one of the creators of Seinfeld, and currently stars in the HBO hit Curb Your Enthusiasm. He started as a stand up comedian, and judging from all the pictures online, his hair started thinning very early. Considering such a large part of his comedy is based on hair loss, I’m guessing the hole process was very traumatic for him.

Thinning At A Very Young Age

I would guess Curb is up there for most bald references in the history of television shows. David has talked about his bald brothers, his propensity for bald people.

As you can see from the video, Larry has really advance alopecia. I would say he approaches a Norwood 7. He also insists on growing his hair pretty long. It’s not really an attractive look, but a lot of Larry’s comedy is based on self deprecation, so the look, in a weird way, works for him.

Bozo Ring

The character George Castanza on Seinfeld is actually based on Larry David. George definitely had several famous bald moments on the show.

A couple years ago, Larry David had a viral video to help out cancer patients. Basically, he sarcastically claimed chemo patients take the bald sympathy away from the naturally bald.  He seems like a genuinely good guy.

In Curb, he has an unrealistically hot wife, played by Cheryl Hines. Milf for sure.

More than twice my age, and I'd still love to hit it

Louis C.K

Louis C.K is a bald(ing) stand up comedian. He may not be the  most mainstream comic in the world, but is certainly well respected amongst his peers. He’s one of those guys who never really became a household name, but his upcoming show Louie looks quite promising. He’s notoriously raunchy.

As a starting comic, he has a good head of hair, even if he is a ginger. Here he is doing stand up back in the day. It looks like the receding hairline might just have been starting.

These days, Louis C.K has lost most of the hair on top. Unfortunately, he still tends to leave his hair long on the sides. Never a great style. The bright red hair doesn’t really help take attention away from the baldness.

Looking Sad

Lately, he’s tried growing a goatee. A lot of bald guys grow facial hair, especially goatees. Sometimes they are effective in distracting from the head. I don’t think the look works really well for Louis C.K.

Pale and Bald

Luckily for Louis C.K, looking unattractive can be advantageous in the world of comedy. Very self deprecating, he looks funny, and it helps him to actually be funny.

As far as the ladies go, Louis C.K is divorced and his wife isn’t particularly hot. So because he’s a ginger, here’s a picture of the hottest ginger I could find, Alicia Witt.

Gingers Still Have No Souls

Tony Kornheiser

Tony Kornheiser is a former Sportswriter famously known for co-hosting the show Pardon the Interruption with fellow bald man, Michael Wilbon. He also had an infamous stint on Monday Night Football, which he ended up leaving due to a fear of flying.

Kornheiser is an older dude, and frequently references his own hair, talking about how he used to have some decent locks back in the 70s. Here’s his High School yearbook picture.

Kornheiser has mentioned that his hair started thinning relatively early in life, when he was at the greatest university on the planet – SUNY Binghamton.

Kornheiser has one of the more famous comb-overs out there. There are entire websites dedicated to his hair loss.

Comb-over is Never a Good Idea

 

Kornheiser has benefited from the progression of his hair loss. He has gotten to the point where he can’t even pull off a combover anymore, so he just leaves it alone up top – a much better look.

He Will Never Be Brad Pitt

 

On his radio show, Kornheiser once referenced his love for bald basketball commentator Dick Vitale saying he likes whenever a bald man gets a good job.

Kornheiser famously criticized Sportscenter anchor Hannah Storm‘s wardobe, saying she dressed too slutty for her age.  I don’t think he will ever have the same complaint for another ESPN employee, hot new anchor Jenn Brown.

The New Erin Andrews

Rob Corddry

Rob Corddry is a comedian mostly known for his role on The Daily Show. He got a pretty big hit recently with the movie Hot Tub Time Machine. Ridiculous title, I know.

Corddry used to have this weird strip of hair in the front of his head.

Not a Great Look

The strip is gone now. I think he looks better, but could probably use a complete head shave.

Slightly Better

Not exactly a sex symbol, but I think the look works for him. In Hot Tub Time Machine, he goes back to the 80s and gets with the same girls he did as a 20 year old. The movie makes note of his full head of hair at the time. I guess they are (fairly) implying less hair means a lower chance of getting laid. I guess aging in general does.

In the movie, Collette Wolfe plays a random hot girl in the 80s.

Collette Wolfe

Ridiculous body.
