Twitter slams Larry David for concentration camp joke in SNL monologue

Larry David Goes To The Dark Side With Death Camp Pick-Up Lines On 'SNL'

However, from that point on, he ricochets into making several jokes about dating while in a concentration camp, and the once-laughter filled audience quickly recedes into near-silence once they realise what direction David is taking this routine.

See Twitter's less positive reactions to the joke below, and stay tuned for EW's full recap on the night's episode, hosted by David and featuring musical guest Miley Cyrus. "I want 'Einstein discovers the theory of relativity.' 'Salk cures polio.' What I don't want?"

Larry David's brand of humor has always been a bit divisive.

"I couldn't help but notice a very disturbing pattern emerging, which is that numerous predators are Jews", said David, whose Curb Your Enthusiasm once included a plot about mistaking Survivor cast members with camp survivors, said.

The comedian said he "consistently strives to be a good Jewish representative".


"#LarryDavid I know of a few million people who think your holocaust joke on @nbcsnl was tasteless".

"'Hey, Shlomo, look at that one over there by Barracks 8, oh my God is she gorgeous. So go put on your baggy suit, fold your hair nice, and answer our questions face to face like the public servant that you are". "When I need to wash the one suit I own, I just wait until it rains, I stand outside for 15 minutes and then I jog behind a bus until the exhaust dries me off", Sanders says when asked to bid. "Nothing about the [H] olocaust will ever be amusing".

Comedians often use the SNL monologue as an opportunity to push the envelope of good taste, and occasionally get burned for it.

David did have his defenders, with many comparing it to a standard skit on "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Another man added: "Everyone complaining about Larry David being awkward and *offensive* as if they've never heard of Larry David".
