With Jerry Seinfeld going back on tour, I can’t help but revisit some of the most hysterical moments of one of the funniest shows of all time, Seinfeld. I spent some time looking around on the internet for the greatest Seinfeld memorabilia. And I matched moments from the show or Jerry’s stand-up to the items. Scroll down to check out my finds and the show connections or read up on some Seinfeld facts before you scroll. Prepare yourself for the feats of strength.
Seinfeld was based on the lives of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. The show came about after Jerry and Larry were walking the streets of New York and kept coming up with funny everyday occurrences. When a show is based on real life, you run the risk that some people recognize their characters and aren’t happy about it.
Seinfeld IRL Characters
Did you know that Jerry Seinfeld really is banned from a soup stall in New York? It’s the very place that he patterned the “Soup Nazi” episode after. The man saw the episode and wasn’t pleased with how his character was portrayed. So, he asked Jerry to leave.
Just like The Soup Nazi banned Jerry from his kitchen, the character that resembled George Costanza wasn’t too pleased either. Michael Costanza sued NBC for 100 million dollars. ABC News dug into this: Michael Costanza said, “George is bald. I am bald.” He continued, “George and I both went to Queens College with Jerry. George’s high-school teacher nicknamed him ‘Can’t stand ya.’ So did mine.” His lawsuit was thrown out primarily because the statute of limitations had run out.
Before time runs out on these items, give them a gander and see if there’s something you like from my greatest Seinfeld memorabilia items, or just enjoy the Seinfeld clips and celebrate our mutual love of the show that really was about so much more than “nothing.”
