Larry David has admitted that he was eschewing the handshake long before the coronavirus outbreak, as the noted germaphobe crashed his daughter’s radio interview to talk all things germaphobia and hand sanitiser.

The Seinfeld comedian made an unexpected appearance on Time Crisis, the Beats 1 radio show from Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, after walking in on his daughter Cazzie being interviewed for the station.

Larry plus Vampire Weekend? Now there’s a collaboration we’d like to see….

Expressing faux concern that his 25-year-old daughter might be talking to weird men on the internet, the 72-year-old quickly became the subject of the presenters’ questioning as they discussed the current health crisis.

With Larry having publicly outed himself as a germaphobe early on his career (to the point where he wrote entire sketches about it), Ezra asked the comedian whether he felt he was ahead of the curve when it came to his hand sanitiser obsession.

‘A lot of people have mentioned that to me,’ Larry replied.

‘I’ve been talking about [hand]shaking for a long time, how wrong that is. There was a time when I was grabbing people’s elbows. I thought the fist-bump was a good new development.’

However, it seems like Larry’s manifesto for good health had been taken to a new level in light of the global pandemic, as he joked: ‘There’s too much contact between people, even sex, it’s enough.

‘People have to do something about the sex!’

Call us when you can get that one to work, huh Larry?

The comedian, who impersonates Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live, recently revived his classic sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm for HBO and Sky Comedy.
