The History of Seinfeld
It has been hailed as the greatest sitcom of all time, and a cultural phenomenon, despite being a show about nothing! Originally premiering on NBC in 1989, the show went on to entertain audiences for nine laughter-filled seasons, all while becoming a major hit in syndication. Created by Larry David and stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld, it is centered on the fictional portrayal of Seinfeld’s personal life. Set in, and around, his apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Monks Café, Jerry was joined by several co-stars. These included Jason Alexander as his petty and envious best friend George Costanza, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as his superficial ex-girlfriend Elaine Benes, and Michael Richards as his wacky next-door neighbor Cosmo Kramer. Always hilarious, its topics and plots were directly exploited from the writer’s real-life experiences and the everyday and mundane aspects of life.
