Lopez reveals Larry David not as Jewish as we thought

George read some surprising DNA results live on Lopez Tonight, Thursday Nov. 12 to the very culturally Jewish comic and writer Larry David, his unwitting subject.

George Lopez is diving into the Human Genome work that National Geographic made popular in their documentaries this past year.

George read some surprising DNA results live on Lopez Tonight, Thursday Nov. 12
to the very culturally Jewish comic and writer Larry David, his unwitting subject.

Apparently there is an Indian in Larry's familial woodpile.

Larry David ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") received his surprising results, and his reaction:

Larry : "This is so stupid, I don't know why I agreed to this."
George: "Are you interested? Why did you do it Larry?"
Larry: "Why did I do the DNA test? I thought that would be cool to know your ethnicity and all that. I know I'm a Jew but where did I come from? Maybe I'm not. Maybe I've got some Indian or Mexican in me. Who the hell knows? Maybe I'll be surprised by this."
George: "Oh you will be surprised."

George reads the results live on "Lopez Tonight" and Larry David reacts.

George: "I have the results, are you ready?"
Larry: "Sure."
George: "Okay here we go. OH MY GOD! Larry.  You are 63% European....drum roll Robin...Larry David you are 37% Native American."
Larry: "What do you mean. I'm a Comanche? I'm in the Iroquois Tribe. What are you saying?"
George: "Listen, you're a member of two tribes. You're Jewish...."
Larry: "My whole life has changed."
George: "...and you're Native American."
Larry: "I'm Indian. I'm an Indian."
George: "You are an Indian."
Larry: "Am I?"
Larry: "What! This can't be true."
George: "Its True, its absolutely true."
