Whose That Seinfeld & What he has done here
27 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an important documentary done by a great fan of Abbott & Costello. Jerry Seinfeld here did everybody a service when he put this together. I am glad he did.

Available now on DVD as part of the Universal Franchise Collection extras of the boys, this portrait of the boys is the best I've seen. It does more than just clips & more than just an homage to them. Seinfeld found the things that inspired them to start with.

He mentions the history of vaudeville that A&C were all about. How they preserved this comic history is important. How they ad libbed their routines from memory was something that is rarely done by todays folks who are all reading cue cards & TelePrompTers.

Some of the clips, especially from the old TV A&C television show, the Colgate (Live) comedy hours & the home movies of the boys themselves is priceless beyond that. This is must see TV but you need the full franchise collection from Universal or an old recording from when it was broadcast to see it.
