Comedian JB Smoove‘s character Leon Black is among the most beloved cast members of the hit TV series Curb Your Enthusiam with Larry David.

Leon’s sometimes twisted and always profane views on life have now been captured in the new book The Book of Leon: Philosophy of A Fool.

JB checked in with Jim Monaghan on the WDHA Morning Jolt to talk about Leon, how he interacts with Larry and how we all need a little Leon in our lives.

JB Smoove will be appearing at Caroline’s On Broadway in New York City January 25-28, 2018.
