After 24 years on HBO, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” from Larry David (“Seinfeld”) is a wrap. Multi-award-winning filmmaker Matthew Bauer (“The Other Fellow”) directed “Curb Your Expatriatism,” which regards David. “Expatriatism” went live on distributor Viddsee’s YouTube channel Wednesday night.

“I’m a huge fan of both ‘Curb’ and ‘Seinfeld’ and wondered if there was some sort of film in this,” Bauer said.

Bauer’s favorite film professor at New York University was Allan Nicholls (“Nashville,” “Popeye,” original “Hair” Broadway cast). In “Expatriatism,” Nicholls exploits his likeness to David.

People have continually told Nicholls how much he looks like David. (Nicholls also says people have told him he looks like Sen. Bernie Sanders. David himself said on “Curb” that people say he looks like Sanders.)
