Charlie Rose’s humorous profile included footage from the new play at the Cort Theatre and clips from David’s television program, "Curb Your Enthusiasm." The interview also took David back to his old apartment and his junior high school in Brooklyn.
David admitted that, despite his fame, he still lacks confidence in certain areas. "I still… to this day, I still couldn’t walk up to a woman at a bar and say hello… I don’t have that," the writer-actor told Rose.
David also remembered how little faith in his own mother had in him. "A mailman… she wanted me to work in the post office… that was her dream,” he said. “It said a lot to me. It wasn’t only that she said that. That’s how I felt about it.
“Zero, zero belief in myself. And it’s changed somewhat, but there’s still a lot of that in me,” said David.
Fish in the Dark is scheduled to open March 5. David created and starred in the HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," and served as co-creator and head writer for the series "Seinfeld." Watch the interview below:
