Susie Essman…Comedian from “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
Susie Essman plays the venomous Susie Greene in the critically-acclaimed HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm. Susie (Greene, not Essman) is the no-nonsense wife of Larry David’s rotund, cheerful agent Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin). Mrs. Greene will not suffer a fool or overlook the slightest slight; she invariably sees through every one of Larry and Jeff’s lies and mischievous ploys and rips into them. These hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character’s trademark and helped her to become one of the most popular players on the show.
She has appeared in her own half-hour HBO comedy special, hosted the American Comedy Awards, and performed on Comedy Central’s “The Friar’s Roast of Jerry Stiller”, “Politically Incorrect” and “The Tonight Show”. Her other television credits include appearances on “Law and Order’, “The King Of Queens”, and “Baby Boom.” Essman has appeared in the films “Keeping The Faith”, “The Siege”, “Volcano” and “Punchline.”
