However, David completely loses it when required to deliver the line "We have time to hear one song, and then go, which is ideal, because, after that, the club is overrun with thirsty bottomfeeders". "And I have three words to say to that: Oy Vey Ishmeer".

Earlier, speaking of the avalanche triggered by revelations about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein, David noted how uncomfortable it was that numerous accused men are Jewish, like himself. "Should we remind Larry David that Jewish women were humiliated, molested, disfigured and often raped in concentration camps?" the group said in its statement. "I want Einstein discovers the theory of relativity".

His appearance was met with outrage on social media, with viewers taking to Twitter and Facebook, saying out his performance was "offensive" and made them "cringe".

"We're gonna' win this thing the dirty way, which means if I lose I'll bring everyone down with me", David's Sanders says. "Here's what you do: When you go to a gas station, and you see the 'take a penny, leave a penny, ' you always take a penny", he advised.

"#LarryDavid I know of a few million people who think your holocaust joke on @nbcsnl was tasteless".

David did have his defenders, with many comparing it to a standard skit on "Curb Your Enthusiasm". "Nothing about the Holocaust will ever be amusing". It's a trick (one amongst many) comedians use to work the crowd.

Larry David's own questionable monologue, filled with jokes that might have seemed funnier back in the '80s when the comedian was trying to make it as a stand-up (a career he would eventually abandon), may have already felt like a slow-motion trainwreck before arriving at the Holocaust bit.
