Jerry Seinfeld Reflects on Early Career, Gets Praised By Jay Leno at ‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’ Premiere

20 September 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jerry Seinfeld dusts off some of the best jokes from the early years of his career and presents them to a 2017 audience in his new Netflix stand-up special “Jerry Before Seinfeld,” resulting in a surprisingly introspective hour from the famously impersonal comedian. And that gesture toward self-reflection extended to a Q&A session Seinfeld did with Netflix’s Ted Sarandos following the special’s premiere screening in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The special traces Seinfeld’s career from the initial decision to pursue comedy through his first-ever show at The Comic Strip and his eventual appearance on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show, »

Exclusive: Jerry Seinfeld Not Interested in a 'Seinfeld' Reboot: 'It's Nice That You Continue to Love It'

20 September 2017 3:33 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sorry, Seinfeld fans, but it looks like a reboot isn't in the near future.

Jerry Seinfeld is certainly thankful for his Emmy Award-winning NBC sitcom, but these days, the 63-year-old comedian is focusing on new endeavors, particularly his new Netflix stand-up special, Jerry Before Seinfeld.

With comedy shows like Will & Grace and Rosanne gearing up for revivals, Et's Nischelle Turner recently caught up with Seinfeld to chat about the possibility of bring his sitcom back.

"Why?" Seinfeld asked. "Maybe it's nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well."

Before Seinfeld, the comedian was doing stand-up in New York City, beginning his career at the young age of 21. So did he find it difficult to leave his nightly routine for a television show?

Jerry Seinfeld is back – and he's still the ultimate laser-precision joke machine

20 September 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jerry Before Seinfeld is just the start of the comic’s Netflix takeover – and it’s crammed with the immaculate gags that have long been his trademark

Netflix is now in the Jerry Seinfeld business, and then some. Earlier this year, the streaming service paid an astronomical $100m to buy two new standup specials plus Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But the first fruits of this deal is the just-released Jerry Before Seinfeld special.

Ostensibly, Jerry Before Seinfeld is the comedian’s version of 700 Sundays; a sepia-tinged nostalgia-fest about his childhood and adolescence and first steps into comedy. But that is derailed right from the word go because – for better or worse – Jerry Seinfeld is incapable of the self-examination required to pull something as personal as that.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Just Broke 3 Huge Emmys Records

20 September 2017 1:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Jason Laveris Everyone knows Game of Thrones is a record-breaking Emmy machine (the series has earned 38 statues, beating out Frasier as the most-won scripted show). But when it comes to individual actors, who's racked up the most gold? The honor just went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won her seventh Emmy for Veep at this year's Emmys ceremony, giving her the title of most Emmys won by a single performer for one role. It's also her eighth total, which means she is tied with Cloris Leachman for most Emmys total. Leachman, who also has eight awards under her belt, has accumulated statuettes for a variety of projects over the years. Her first win was in 1973 for the TV movie A Brand New Life. She won again for two consecutive years for her role as Phyllis Lindstrom on Mary Tyler Moore, and in 1975 she double-dipped with a second award »

‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’ Reviews Mixed: Stand-Up Rehashes Same Old Jokes

19 September 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jerry Seinfeld is in a safe space — too safe critics complain. “Jerry Before Seinfeld” hit the Netflix stage on Tuesday, and the reviews are mixed. Seinfeld already gave audiences an intimate portrait of his life in the 2002 documentary “Comedian,” which followed him getting back into stand-up following the conclusion of his sitcom. So people who were hoping for something more personal and telling from “Jerry Before Seinfeld” may be disappointed. The special is a look back on his life told through old family photographs and videos, but it’s mostly him going through his greatest hits and paying tribute to Johnny. »

’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix

19 September 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Picking favorites when it comes to “30 Rock” is an awful proposition because the whole series, barring a handful of exceptions, remains an extremely watchable and fascinating comedic journey. But with the show leaving Netflix at the beginning of October (and thus becoming completely unstreamable), we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to choose favorites.

Twenty-five episodes equates to less than 10 hours, so you should be able to make the time before September 30. And the adventures of Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and beyond are worth it.

“Tracy Does Conan

Season 1, Episode 7

The first season of “30 Rock” was a bit rocky, but “Tracy Does Conan” does a few important things: It introduces Dr. Leo Spaceman (Chris Parnell), casts Conan O’Brien as himself, and features Aubrey Plaza as an NBC page (a job she actually held in real life). More importantly, it features a breathless sense of anarchy, »

Back in 1999, Jerry Seinfeld and the late David Bowie did a bit during the Saturday Night Live 25th anniversary special sending up their images as above-it-all, coasting megastars. “You gonna do the ‘lost sock’ bit?,” asks Bowie, to which Seinfeld replies with a sheepish nod. In his first stand-up special in 19 years…

Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her eighth Emmy award on Sunday, taking home her sixth straight trophy for her performance on “Veep.” The actress breaks the record for most primetime Emmy awards won by an actor for the same role, besting “Murphy Brown’s” Candice Bergen and “The Andy Griffith Show’s” Don Knotts. She also ties “Mary Tyler Moore Show” star Cloris Leachman for most acting trophies overall, with eight total (Louis-Dreyfus has two other wins for “Seinfeld” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”) The win came late in a show full of political statements, and Louis-Dreyfus kept it going by. »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Emmy History as Performer With Most Awards for Same Role

17 September 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the comedy lead actress trophy for her role on “Veep” at the 69th Annual Emmys in Los Angeles, Calif.

Louis-Dreyfus began her acceptance speech by thanking the “fine, powerful, and funny ladies” in her category. “You are superb and I love you,” she said.

From the stage, she also took a jab at President Donald Trump. “We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment,” she said of the next season of “Veep,” “but we abandoned that because we were afraid someone else might get to it first.”

And with this win, it’s official that history has been made. This is Louis-Dreyfus’ sixth win for portraying former-Veep-turned-former-potus Selina Meyer on the HBO political comedy, which makes her the performer with the most Emmy awards for the same role. Last year she was tied for that title with Don Knotts and Candice Bergen, who had five Emmys for their roles on “The Andy Griffith Show »

‘Netflix Is a Joke’ Ad Unveiled During Emmys

17 September 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The ad campaign that Netflix teased with a batch of cryptic, minimalist billboards two weeks ago was unveiled Sunday during the Primetime Emmy Awards.

With a new commercial bearing the slogan “Netflix is a joke,” a new 60-second spot was released touting the streaming service’s burgeoning stand-up comedy offerings. The ad featured comics such as Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, and Chris Rock — all of whom have forthcoming stand-up specials soon to premiere on the service — appearing in scenes from popular Netflix original dramas including “House of Cards,” “Stranger Things,” “The Crown,” and “Orange is the New Black.”

This month, plain white billboards with black letters reading “Netflix is a joke” appeared in New York and Los Angeles, capturing attention on social media and teasing the upcoming ad campaign.

Netflix has moved aggressively into stand-up comedy, a genre previously dominated by HBO, signing deals in the $11 million-$20 million per special range with comedians such as »

The Number of Emmys Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Won May Surprise You

14 September 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If awards were handed out for best worst dancing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus would have an extra Emmy to add to her mantle. But even without the bonus statuette for Elaine Benes's epic moves, the former Seinfeld star has plenty of statuettes to her name. Last September, Louis-Dreyfus actually broke a record by earning her sixth Emmy for lead actress in a comedy and her eighth overall (including one for producing). Prior to that win, the actress had maintained a three-way tie with Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore for most lead actress wins. Louis-Dreyfus starting racking up Emmys in 1996, when she won outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for Seinfeld (she'd been nominated each year since 1992). Surprisingly, that was her only solo win for the sitcom; she was nominated seven times between 1992 and 1998. Her next win would be a full decade later for The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Here is my Top 20 greatest Seinfeld episodes in descending order. You will not find any episodes that feature George’s parents because their presence in the series was far more annoying than their presumed added value to the show. Only a few episodes on the list include appearances by Jerry’s parents. As much as humanly possible, episodes that dealt with the Jerry and George getting the job writing the pilot for NBC have also been avoided. As much as possible, the episodes included in the list have parts by established actors such as Lloyd Bridges, Teri Hatcher, Maggie Wheeler, Philip
