Jerry Seinfeld stars in this television comedy series as himself, a comedian. The premise of this sitcom is Jerry and his friends going through everyday life, discussing various quirky situations, to which we can all relate (especially if we live in New York City). The eccentric personalities of the offbeat characters who make up Jerry's social circle contribute to the fun.

It was originally intended that Elaine's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus
) formidable father, famous author Alton Benes, of whom Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld
) and George (Jason Alexander
) are terrified, be a recurring character, but in an odd case of life imitating art, Lawrence Tierney
really did frighten and intimidated the other cast members, that it was decided he should never return. See more
Jerry's apartment building looks to have earthquake retrofitting on the exterior (several square steel plates which are anchors for cables) Actually, that is what it is. When I first saw it, our company was bidding in earnest around the time after the Whittier quake and that is what the finished product looked like. Native to Los Angeles and California only. See more

In the episode, "Bookstore, The" (ep. #9.17), J. Peterman describes provides several euphemisms for the drug opium when he's describing Elaine's boyfriend's addiction. In the original airing, he referred to it as "smack...white palace...the Chinaman's nightcap". In all syndicated airings, the last part of that line was omitted, obviously because of its racial insensitivity. See more
