If you listened to Richard Lewis 's recent podcast interview on WTF with Marc Maron, you might come away thinking he's a dark, confrontational, impossible-to-talk-to guy.

But as we found out recently, that couldn't be further from the truth. During a recent phone call, Lewis held forth amiably on a variety of topics ranging from staying sober to using the F-word to wearing black to the future of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

"I had a Curb Your Enthusiasm lunch a few weeks ago with Larry David," he said. "He just keep looking at his watch then said, 'I have to go,’’ and we had barely started to eat. I said, 'Where are you going?'’ and he said, 'I found a really good parking space and I don’t want to get a ticket.’ He left me there with the lunch and the check. So I’m sure I’ll see that on an episode. I’ve never asked him for a decade now, 'Are you coming back?’ I just don’t know. Curb is a cult show and I love that. I never wanted to be loved by the masses because I figure what kind of comic would I be? I’d be so watered down."

Lewis performs at 9 p.m. Oct. 14 at The Club at Treasure Island, 400 Treasure Island Causeway. Tickets are $43.50. Click here for info.
