When Larry David appeared on The Joy Behar Show on July 11, he more than hinted that he’d be up for returning to his roots– stand-up comedy. You can see the video here. But in a new cover story for Rolling Stone, out July 22, it looks like he gets a little deeper into the matter.

“I think it would be a great experience to be able to go up and have an audience of fans,” he tells Rolling Stone writer Brian Hiatt. “It would be very different for me, and it’s something that I’ve never experienced.”

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that David has changed the face of comedy over the past 25 years, thanks, in no small part, to Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, now in its eighth season. If you can’t wait to read the in-depth interview with the man, Rolling Stone has put up a quick preview on their site featuring his thoughts on post-divorce dating, Seinfeld, and money. Lots and lots of money.
