During its nine-year network run, Seinfeld, which premiered in 1990 on NBC, set the meandering course for four single friends living in New York. The group's core is Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), a stand up comedian whose professional path includes a shot of creating a network sitcom, a guest spot on the "Today" show, and a wealth of other quests gone-awry with a personal life rife with an endless parade of never-quite-right girlfriends. His childhood best friend, George Costanza (Jason Alexander), could be deemed the quintessential loser; he can never hold a job or keep a romance.. although he has more than enough schemes to make either happen. Jerry's ex, Elaine Benes (Julia Loius-Dreyfus) offers the quirky quartet her own barrage of bad dates and worrisome workplace sagas. The curiously-coiffed Kramer (Michael Richards) rounds up the group as Jerry's over-the-top imaginative and often-mysterious neighbor, who has no visible means of support and an uncanny knack for opening doors to opportunities he has no business being near.
The web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is showing no signs of slowing down in Season 7, which kicked off with a very special guest joining star/creator Jerry Seinfeld last month, U.S. President Barack Obama. This season's fourth episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will debut Wednesday, January 20, and Crackle has released a new trailer for this episode, revealing that Jerry Seinfeld returns to the set of Seinfeld for the first time. The comedian is joined by special guest star Garry Shandling in this episode.
This week on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld returns to the set of Seinfeld for the first time ever with his friend and fellow comedian Garry Shandling. In the all-new episode, launching Wednesday, January 20 starting at 11:30pm ET on Crackle, Seinfeld and Shandling drive around in a Cashmere Beige 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo, reminiscing about their start in the 70s at The Comedy Store on the infamous Sunset Strip and the days of shooting their respective hit shows directly across the street from one another. The duo stop by CBS Studio Center in Los Angeles to take a walk down memory lane on the New York City street set that was built for Seinfeld.Read More
'Do you want to see something really scary?' Those are the immortal words whispered by Dan Aykroyd in Twilight Zone: The Movie. And even though his ambulance driver has surely seen a lot of horrifying things in his life, nothing could have prepared him for this! 80sTees, which traffics in novelty T-Shirts and pop memorabilia, sent out its Halloween newsletter this past week, and on the cover were a couple of very frightening costumes. No, it's not what you're thinking. There are no zombies, aliens or vampires here. These costumes bring four average New Yorkers together, and if you don't have enough friends, this ensemble just isn't going to work.
The scariest part about these costumes may just be the people wearing them. When seen on their own, it looks like people. Nothing special about it. Except these models all look like they escaped from the insane asylum. It's strange that a company is asking as much as $70 dollars for one of these 'authentic' Seinfeld costumes, based on the hit TV show. Any enterprising young man or woman could probably raid their own closet for a better rendition. And if not, the local thrift store in any given town, even one as small as Philomath, Oregon or Dierks, Arkansas, will surely have what you're looking for if your goal is to look like a short, fat balding man.Read More

Jerry Seinfeld has confirmed that a Seinfeld reunion is happening, though he will not yet reveal what the project is. After the comedian was spotted walking into Tom's Restaurant with his former co-star Jason Alexander on http://movieweb.com/jerry-seinfeld-and-jason-alexander-spotted-outside-toms-restaurant/January 16, many people thought they were either shooting an episode of Jerry's webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee or they were shooting a Super Bowl ad. Neither of those things is true.
Though, Jerry Seinfeld does later tease that maybe it is one of those things. What we know so far, after the comedian talked with WFAN's Boomer & Carton show, is that Jason Alexander is in fact reprising his role as George Costanza, and other cast members will appear. Seinfeld creator Larry David is involved, but he will not be seen in front of the camera or heard. The project will last longer than 60 seconds, but its 'short-ish' in form. It is a onetime thing, and it will take place in other locations besides Monk's Diner, which is in reality Tom's Restaurant.Read More
