Comedian and actor Larry David said he was relieved to be uninvited to former President Obama’s 60th birthday party, Fox News reported.

Obama hosted a star-studded birthday party at Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. Celebrities such as John Legend and Beyonce attended the highly criticized gathering, Fox News reported. (RELATED: Deleted Photos and Video Offer Inside Glimpse Into Obama’s Decadent Maskless Birthday Party)

The 44th president decided to scale back his guest list due to concerns about COVID-19. As a result, David said he was removed from the list.

David was thrilled to be uninvited as he feared he would be asked to perform a comedy routine. The 74-year-old was at a loss for content with only three days to prepare, Fox News reported. (RELATED: HART: Maskless Super-Spreader Birthday Party Held By, And For, Obama)

“When he told me I was eighty-sixed from the party, I was so relieved I screamed, ‘Thank you! Thank you!’ He must have thought I was insane,” David said, according to Fox News. “Then I hung up the phone, poured myself a drink and finished my crossword puzzle.”

Other comedians such as Stephen Colbert, Conan O’Brien, and David Letterman were also booted from the guest list, Fox News reported.
