Larry David and Jason Alexander stopped by last night's TONIGHT SHOW to talk to Jimmy about their Broadway play FISH IN THE DARK. A Tony Award-winning actor, Alexander returns to Broadway tonight, June 9 when he assumes the role of Norman Drexel in David's hit comedy

Later in the show, Larry David reveals that he ignored Alexander's words of wisdom about handling his first Broadway show. Check out the clips from the appearance below!

FISH IN THE DARK, directed by Anna D. Shapiro, is currently playing at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street). Mr. Alexander steps into the role created by Mr. David in the comedy about a death in the family. Larry David will play his final performance in FISH IN THE DARK on Sunday, June 7. The limited engagement run of the production, originally scheduled through June 7, is extended for six weeks through Sunday, July 19.

FISH IN THE DARK set the record for the highest advance sales for a straight play in the history of Broadway before it began previews in early February, and since then has broken the Cort Theatre box office house record twice.

FISH IN THE DARK also stars Rita Wilson, Rosie Perez, Jayne Houdyshell, Ben Shenkman, Lewis J. Stadlen, Jake Cannavale, Marylouise Burke, Jerry Adler, Jenn Lyon, Jonny Orsini, Molly Ranson, Maria Elena Ramirez, Rachel Resheff, Joel Rooks, Jeff Still, Kenneth Tigar, and Richard Topol.
