They shouldn’t have laughed at him.
When you hear "The Soup Nazi" or "He's a lowtalker," one thing should come to mind: "Seinfeld". The "show about nothing" was almost canceled before it could ever take off,…
The Seinfeld cast is essentially four friends who hang out, sometimes at a diner. This simple premise led to one of the funniest shows that has ever graced the airwaves….
"Seinfeld" was the most successful sitcom of the nineties because of the four main Seinfeld characters. While many guest stars and recurring characters popped up throughout the series, the four…
Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis C.K. and Ricky Gervais. All talking. To each other. Dun-dun-duuuuuun.
Four of the best stand up comedians alive are going to be on HBO, sitting down.
I always assumed Jerry was too apathetic to make a play for global supremacy, but in the right light he could almost pass for a halfway-decent James Bond villain.

Just when you thought Kim Kardashian couldn't sink any lower, she goes on Facebook and harasses an 87-year-old man. And not just any 87-year old. We're talking about Len Lesser, the guy who played Uncle Leo on "Seinfeld!"
Len Lesser called Burbank police last night after receiving a slew of calls from people who kept asking, "Are you Uncle Leo?" The 87-year-old couldn't take it anymore so cops came to his house.
While at Lesser's home, an officer intercepted one of the calls and asked where the caller had found the number. As it turns out, someone posing as Kim Kardashian on Facebook posted the information, not the reality/porn star herself. However, I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to throw Kardashain in jail until the whole thing gets sorted out, just in case.
In the meantime, Lesser should start answering his phone with "Vandelay Industries" in order to throw the callers off his trail. (TMZ)
He's conquered television, starred on the silver screen, and surfed the internet. Now, comedian extraordinaire Jerry Seinfeld has set his sites on Broadway….off Broadway, to be exact. Seinfeld will direct "Long Story Short," a comedic monologue by SNL alum Colin Quinn. The play explores "2,000 years of human civilization and the rise and fall of its great empires, stretching from ancient Rome to Walmart." It is hoped that Seinfeld's name recognition will translate to ticket sales. Most Off Broadway shows close after only a week, sending the vanquished cast members back home to flyover country with their pathetic hopes of stardom dashed. This is not Seinfeld's first encounter with the Great White Way. In 1998, he closed out his old stand-up routine with a limited run entitled, "I'm Telling You For The Last Time." In addition, Monk's Coffee Shop, the fictitious hangout for the "Seinfeld" characters, is located at West 112th Street and Broadway. Not too bad for a guy whose only knowledge of high culture comes from Bugs Bunny cartoons. (Variety) See video of Jerry Seinfeld's Broadway debut after the jump.
Though he's always been opposed, Larry David is finally caving and doing a Seinfeld reunion — on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The fictional reunion will be the through-line of season seven with the original cast all appearing as themselves. Recently at the TCA press tour, David told critics what they can expect to see of the reunion. "You won't see the entire show. You'll see parts of the show. You'll get an idea of what happened (to the 'Seinfeld' characters) 11 years later." The series returns on September 20th and I personally am very excited to see what happens if Kramer is locked in a room with Leon or Crazy Eyez Killah.
