The Five Most Interesting Sentences from the Seinfeld Reddit AMA


Yesterday the persnickety fount of wisdom known as Jerry Seinfield took to Reddit to answer questions about everything from his personal style to a new mystery project with Larry David. (Actually, he couldn’t say much about the latter.)

And we pulled out the five most interesting sentences...

On Style: “It started with wanting to be Joe Namath of the 1969 New York jets, who at that time was one of the only football players to wear white shoes. And I wanted to be like him, so I always wore white sneakers. Also, Bill Cosby on I SPY always wore white sneakers. And they were my fashion icons.”

On Writing: “Writer's block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work.”

On the Creation of Festivus: “I didn't come up with it, it was the invention of Dan O'Keefe's father, who was a writer on our show. We never anticipated anything. I anticipated it would be a good idea that would get us through this week.”

On Relaxing: “Somtimes after a show on the road, I will find a place to have a cigar in an alleyway next to the hotel with a friend of mine, and I find that very relaxing.”

On Larry David: “We never obsess over anything that isn't mundane. Most recent was intentional mumbling. We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can't reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it's big, huge, gigantic. Even bigger than that Amazon package.”
