JTA — Larry David must be feeling anxious about relinquishing the lead role in his Broadway play “A Fish in the Dark.” Or he could just be up to his usual egotistical antics.

On Tuesday night, “Seinfeld” star Jason Alexander takes over for David in the play, which has grossed over $21 million since opening earlier this year.

At the Tony Awards on Sunday, while presenting the award for best musical (to “Fun Home”) with Alexander, David joked that his play wasn’t nominated for any awards because of anti-Semitism.

Watch the entertaining rant, in which Alexander calls David a loser, below.
