I love to smile. I love to laugh. I like to hear jokes.

Like most athletes, I like to go home and relax. I try not to bring the game home with me. I might play some video games that are, let’s just say, for mature audiences only. And I might get some flak for this, but I like to watch ‘Seinfeld.’ Sometimes, laughter is the best medicine.

Nick Ferguson

I mean, comedy’s hard. If you go back and look at the first season of ‘Seinfeld,’ it’s a work in progress and that’s what happens. It just takes time for people to figure each other out, and figure out timing, and to develop creatively with the writers.

Zachary Knighton

Bill Lawrence

All comedy does that. Every comedian I can think of – Larry David, Seinfeld, Mel Brooks, Chris Rock – that’s where the best comedy comes from, from stereotypes.

Bryan Fogel
I’ve seen every episode of ‘Seinfeld.’

I always felt that it was easier to take a funny person and teach them to write television than to take somebody who was a television writer and make them funny.

Jerry Seinfeld is amazing in many ways, not the least of them his ability to find humor, and convincing us to find it, too, in the million-and-two details about modern life that under different circumstances might send us into paroxysms of rage.

I wouldn’t call myself a standup in the presence of Jerry Seinfeld or Chris Rock, but I do my share of it and it has been and remains part of my activity and I like it.

One way in which ‘Friends’ did resemble ‘Seinfeld’ is that it really found its audience over the summer of 1995 in reruns. That’s when the main title song, ‘I’ll Be There for You’, by the Rembrandts, exploded, too.

I was such a huge ‘Seinfeld’ fan, and I walked on the set, and I saw Kramer. I walked into Jerry’s apartment, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is Jerry’s apartment.’

I can watch an episode of Jerry Seinfeld, and by the end, I’m just walking around my house, you know, talking like Jerry Seinfeld. ‘What is that? What are you doing? Who is it? What’s going‘ – you know, I just had that thing, when I grew up, I’d just start talking like people. You know, I always had that.

I’m on my own when I say this, but I’m one of the few people that think that ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ is better than ‘Seinfeld.’

We have a lot of American TV in Australia. I grew up watching ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘The Simpsons‘ and those prime time TV shows over the years that feature grown-ups and high school kids. We had a saturation of American voices.

Actually, I think that ‘Seinfeld’ tackles the same kinds of issues as ‘Six Feet Under,’ just in a different way.

Things that make me laugh range from a wonderful stand-up like Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K. and Chris Rock to my son Gabe, who does great improv work. I also look backwards to the great comedic actors like Jackie Gleason, Paul Lynde and Phil Silvers.

I grew up in a pretty strict household in the sense that we just didn’t have cable, so I wasn’t familiar with what stand-up comedy was. I remember telling my friends that I thought stand-up comedy was like the thing that happened before the episode of ‘Seinfeld.’

Not Going Out’ is a pretty neutral sitcom – to quote the ‘Seinfeld’ thing, it’s not really about anything.

There’s a ‘Seinfeld’ episode, where he talks about why he can’t get angry, because his voice rises to a comedic pitch and no one takes him seriously – and that’s true of me, too.

Comedians, we’re just people who whine. But we happen to be funny when we whine. Like, if Jerry Seinfeld wasn’t funny, you’d want to punch him in the face; he’d just seem like a whiner to you. But the fact is that he’s funny.

When anyone pitches me – and I’ve heard it a million times: ‘It’s the black Seinfeld,’ or, ‘It’s the new version of something that’s already been successful‘ – I immediately shut it off. I won’t ever entertain doing ‘the new version of such-and-such.’

Just as like the music industry still wishes for the days when it controlled its own production and distribution, the media and marketing world still yearns for the silver bullet of the thirty-second spot on ‘Seinfeld,’ even as it knows those days are over.

He’d never seen Seinfeld, so he didn’t know who Puddy was or anything.

I grew up with ‘Friends’ from day one and, like, ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Frazier,’ those sorts of shows, but for sure, ‘Friends’ was it for our family. Like, we would watch every Thursday night at eight o’clock; I couldn’t wait.

Really, when people put together the highlight reels of the classic moments from ‘Friends,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Cheers,’ even ‘MASH,’ they’re full of broad slapstick comedy. Call it cheap or lowbrow, but it works and it works for people of all ages.

I’ve been cast in a lot of comedies. I’ve done things like multi-cam sitcoms: you know, ‘Seinfeld’ type… not as good as ‘Seinfeld,’ but that kind of thing. I love that stuff.

Jerry Seinfeld made a puddle, I stepped in it, and wonderful things happened.

The pilot of ‘Seinfeld’ was made and dropped. ‘Seinfeld’ was not supposed to go to series.

I remember watching an episode of ‘Seinfeld’ in which George can’t understand why security guards can’t sit down. He gets obsessed with it and eventually buys a chair for a security guard who sits down and goes to sleep. The shop gets robbed. That’s a brilliant extrapolation of what is essentially observational comedy.

I watched Season 1 through 9 of ‘Seinfeld’ bloopers one day, just having a ball. It’s fun to see people having fun.

I was a rabid ‘Seinfeld’ fan. Then I did the show, and it ruined the show for me. Not that it ruined the quality of the show, but I had seen behind the curtain at Oz.

When the ‘Seinfeld’ show said it was going to be a show about nothing, everybody said it couldn’t – wouldn’t work. It did. ‘Thor’ is about something, about that character finding his destiny, but it’s not doing what was expected… and yet it’s doing very well.

I’ve always wanted to play Jerry Seinfeld’s son, actually, because he’s the only person who anyone ever says I look like, in my entire – ever in my life.

Paulo Costanzo
I hate shows, personally, where people stand around tossing stuff at each other, and any character can say any line, because you don’t believe any of these characters care for each other. I used to fight with my friends who wrote on ‘Seinfeld,’ because they had such great pride in saying it was a show about nothing.

Bill Lawrence
I’ll work with Jerry Seinfeld any day of the week. Get a nice little paycheck there, but you do it for free. It’s just good to be associated with that man. He’s a great guy.

Patrick Warburton
If I had the gift of Jerry Seinfeld, of Bill Cosby, of Lewis Black, these instinctively brilliant comic minds, then you go that route! But you gotta know your limitations. I’m more of an actor, more of a process guy. I did Tom Snyder, just as Danny Aykroyd did on ‘SNL.’ I did it in the club.

Joe Piscopo
I was young enough to certainly realize the excitement of how popular ‘Seinfeld’ was.

Some of the greatest shows in history – ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ and ‘House’ – had puny starts but the benefit of schedule protection, increasingly scarce in today‘s DVR world. Cable nets can tolerate small ratings, building hits in progress like ‘Breaking Bad,’ or marathon their way to a ‘Duck Dynasty.’
