Susie Essman is an American actress and comedian. Born in the Bronx to a Jewish family, she is well-known for her role as Susie Greene on the HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm. Susie Greene is the wife of Jeff Greene (played by Jeff Garlin), Larry David’s agent. Her character is quick to anger, especially in reaction to her husband’s lies and Larry David’s schemes, and responds to both with profanity-laden invectives ("You fat fuck!" "You four-eyed fuck!"). However, her character does have a softer side. In the episode "The Nanny From Hell," Susie scolds Larry for bringing twelve sponge cakes home for Jeff as a birthday present, but we later see her serenely and sincerely thank Larry. The sponge cakes had broken Susie's fall after she had been pushed over her balcony by a frenzied nanny (played by Cheri Oteri) — whom Larry had referred to the Greenes in the first place. Larry David called this the "kinder, gentler Susie Greene." ** ...more on Wikipedia about "Susie Essman"
