So that’s why his impression was so good. The Los Angeles Times reports that during an appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Larry David revealed that he and Bernie Sanders are actually related. David was there to promote the ninth season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. David learned of the news on his appearance of the PBS series Finding Your Roots.

He said: “He’s in the line … like a third cousin, or something. I was very happy about that. I figured there was some connection. I love Bernie, yes. I love Bernie.

David played Sanders on Saturday Night Live during the 2015-16 Presidential election. Eventually the two appeared together.
