Ethan Shanfeld J.B. Smoove enters our Zoom interview dressed to the nines. “You look very stylish right now,” is the first thing I say to him. “You’re definitely showing me up on this Zoom call.” Smoove — black pork pie hat and shades on, plus earrings and a chain draped over a red flannel shirt covering a neatly tucked denim shirt — deadpans: “It’s all good, man.

It’s hard to catch up to me, so don’t try.” The 58-year-old stand-up and improv comedy vet is preparing to wrap 17 years and seven seasons of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which airs its series finale on April 7.

Since Smoove joined Larry David’s unscripted comedy in Season 6, it’s been hard to imagine that “Curb” ever existed without him.

Still, after 70 episodes, Smoove believes Leon “left a lot on the table.” “That’s the thing about characters that makes them iconic and legendary,” he tells Variety. “They give you a lot, but you know it’s not everything.” He pauses, and considers the impact of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” at large. “It’s the same thing with the show,” he says. “Do you know how many people, for the rest of their lives, are going to say, ‘This is such a “Curb” moment?’ … No matter if this show comes back or if it’s the end, that shit’s gonna go on forever.” It’s April Fools’ Day today.
