Susie Essman's Bizarre Real-Life 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Moment

Susie Essman stole a place in our hearts as the hilarious, prone-to-yelling Susie Greene on "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Speaking with HuffPost Entertainment at the Natural Resources Defense Council "Night of Comedy" on Wednesday, Essman revealed the experience in her life that most belonged on an episode of Larry David's hit sitcom. It actually happened on a lunch break during filming:

We all went out to some restaurant in Pacific Palisades where we were filming. And right after we ordered, this guy comes out really angry, and he rips the 'A' rating -- you know the food inspection -- off the wall and he puts up a 'D.' And Larry's looking at me all freaked out, like, 'We ordered! We can't eat here now.' So I went running out after the guy, and he was all the way down the block. And I ran after him and I was like, 'Why did you do that?' It turned out one of the five dishwashers wasn't working correctly. But it was a moment where it was like: it so could have been a "Curb" episode but it wasn't. We were just sitting there, like, what just happened?
