CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM "The Hero" Season 8 Episode 8 – Who would have guessed Larry to be a hero? The episode started off as last week’s episode ended, on a plane bound for New York. A stewardess is being harassed by a drunk man, and Larry’s inconvenient shoelaces save the day as he topples on top of the man, in effect saving the day and getting the girl in one fell swoop.

Ricky Gervais stars as a version of himself, visiting New York to perform his show Mister Simmington, a drama about a man in the First World War on Broadway. We first meet him when Larry decides to buy him a bottle of wine in a restaurant. Tensions rise when Gervais orders the most expensive bottle of wine in the restaurant. These tensions continue between Larry and Gervais as the latter offers to get the former tickets to his Broadway show, only to end up making Larry pay for it. At a dinner party, the couples are separated and in a hilarious scene Larry finds himself paired up with the beige husband of a Broadway star on the distinctly unfun end of the table whilst Gervais laughs it up with Larry’s latest flame Donna.
