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.
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.
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.
