In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dreyfus exclaims her love for the recent “Curb” ending, appreciating every aspect of it.

Jeff Schaffer, a longtime collaborator, emphasizes the significance of the finale, stating that it not only wraps up the series but also reflects on David’s entire career. Seinfeld himself expressed excitement for the finale, acknowledging its culmination of a longstanding joke.

Reflecting on the finale, Dreyfus recalls receiving an email from Schaffer, describing it as “amazing” and “sweet.” She compares it to her experience with the “Seinfeld” finale, acknowledging the disappointment some viewers felt. Despite this, she enjoyed the courtroom scene, likening it to watching the show.

Dreyfus, known for her wit, shares her thoughts on the “Curb” finale at the Webby Awards, where she received an award for her podcast. Her blunt acceptance speech reflects her personality, urging listeners to heed the wisdom of older women.

In her acknowledgment of David’s finale, Dreyfus reaffirms her appreciation for innovative storytelling and clever twists, a sentiment echoed by fans and critics alike.
