JDaters Vote Larry David "2007 Person of the Year"
Online Daters Can't Curb Their Enthusiasm for the Jewish Comedian
BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - There's just something about Larry
according to members of JDate, the premier online dating community for
Jewish singles, owned and operated by Spark Networks (AMEX: LOV). When
asked to name their favorite Jewish person of 2007, JDaters selected the
famed "Curb Your Enthusiasm" actor and writer for his ability to seamlessly
and consistently integrate Jewish humor into his show.
Coming in close behind Larry David were comedienne Sarah Silverman and
breakout star Seth Rogen of "Knocked Up" fame, followed by Mayor Michael
Bloomberg, Senator Barbara Boxer, talk show host Donny Deutsch, "High
School Musical" sweetheart Ashley Tisdale, and Senator Arlen Specter.
"My only condition in accepting this award is that I don't have to go on a
date," said Larry David upon learning of his newly crowned title.
In honor of David's passion for saving the planet, JDate has pledged a
corporate donation of $2,500 to his charity and environmental cause, the
Waterkeeper Alliance, which is dedicated to preserving and protecting water
from polluters. More information on the grassroots advocacy organization
can be found at www.waterkeeper.org. David was also presented with what
else -- but, a free JDate membership!
"It's no surprise to us that Larry was chosen as the 2007 Jewish Person of
the Year," said Greg Liberman, president and chief operating officer of
Spark Networks, JDate's owner and operator. "JDaters think Larry is
'pretty, pretty' funny!"
