What's Next? 2012 and Beyond

If Curb doesn't return for a ninth season, Larry's future seems unclear. Richard Lewis claims he is planning a return to stand-up, and Larry himself has said he's been working on new material for a return to the stage. As Larry's biographer, Jason Allen doubts Larry will actually return to stand-up comedy.

Larry hasn't done stand-up in front of paying audiences for 30 years. He has done routines for charities, politicians, and friends, but to actually hit the circuit again seems unlikely. Why would a guy who hated being judged by audiences subject himself to it again when he could try a spinoff or keep building his film career? Plus, Larry's material is not really suited for stand-up. If he did give it another shot, it's more logical that it would be billed as a one man show in which Larry could exploit his expertise for storytelling and narration. The best stand-ups wind their material into pithy, well timed punch lines. Larry could probably achieve this, but it would be quite an adjustment from what he's done recently.
