    Seinfeld interview on Larry King

    Not sure if any of you saw this, but it makes me laugh every time I've seen it.

    I know that there are a lot of Seinfeld fans on the board.

    Seriously, who doesn't know this about Seinfeld.

    Re: Seinfeld interview on Larry King

    I can't tell if Jerry is joking a bit. Larry obviously gets a little annoyed. I think Jerry is seriously angry that Larry thought he was canceled.

    Re: Seinfeld interview on Larry King

    Yeah, I think Jerry was a little irritated.

    My favorite is "Can we get a resume in here for Larry to look at?"
    Larry was a little irked by that time. I'd love to see what happened when it wen to break.

    Re: Seinfeld interview on Larry King

    Jerry Seinfeld is a distinctly average comedian, in my opinion. The vast majority of what made Seinfeld a funny show was Larry David. Without him, there's no Kramer, George or Elaine, and you've got a very mediocre show.

    Wow. Completely disagree with you. All of his standup is so simple and funny. Most of the time he'll bring up a point where I say "Wow, it's so true and I never thought of it." He can be funny without being very vulgar or really gross. He's one of the best I've ever seen.

    He's a very average comedian, IMO, though. I've heard most of his stuff, and it's pretty pedestrian.

    He would have been nothing without the TV show, and the TV show would have been nothing without Larry David.

    Re: Seinfeld interview on Larry King

    When Larry David left the show, the show tanked. It was time to end it.

    I have seen Seinfeld do his stand-up at the Civic Center and thought it was good stuff.

    I like Seinfelds stand up, but agree with he is far from my favorite comedian. It may just be my taste in comedy though. For me the show made him better then just his standup alone.

    I should say that I did find him funny, don't get me wrong. I laughed at some of his stuff, but he's not even in my top 25 or so. You'd have to be a pretty awful comedian to not have people laugh at you. He's a one trick pony, though.

    You have a top 25? Wow, I need to watch more comedians, I think I can only name about 10 that I like.

    You will lose all credibility if you mention Dane Cook. Unless it's along the lines of "Who in the world thinks this guys is funny?"

    3 top comics (in my opinion) Not necessarily the best ever, or even the best now, but 3 guys who consistently make me laugh.

    Eddie Izzard
    Mike Birbiglia
    Jim Gaffigan


    "What a horrible night to have a curse."
    -Simon Belmont

    "Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
    -Master Shake

    "Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
    -Lorem Ipsum

    Pryor, Carlin, Martin, Cosby, Dangerfield, Newhart (highly underrated, IMO), Louis CK (who I was fortunate enough to see last week in Cedar Rapids. Absolutely hilarious), Jonathon Winters, Andy Kaufman, Denis Leary, Billy Connolly, Norm MacDonald, Bob Saget, David Cross, Brian Posehn, Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt Jim Breuer, Dane Cook (his material is kinda garbage, but he's got a great stage presence), Gilbert Gottfried, Lisa Lampanelli etc. etc. etc.

    I'd watch any of those guys/girls way WAY before I'd sit down to watch Seinfeld.
