The Larry Sanders Show is an American television sitcom set in the office and studio of a fictional late-night talk show. It aired from August 1992 to May 1998 on HBO. It stars Garry Shandling, Jeffrey Tambor, Janeane Garofalo and Rip Torn and features celebrities playing exaggerated, self-parodying versions of themselves. Later HBO shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Extras, and Entourage, shared some of its traits.
