Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David team up on mystery project
Jerry Seinfeld apparently has teamed up with his “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David for a new project. But any more information than that will have to wait.
Seinfeld participated in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Monday to promote his new Web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” During the online discussion, he was asked about his friendship with “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star David. Together, they once created one of the most iconic sitcoms of the 1990s: “Seinfeld.”
In response to a question about the most mundane thing David and Seinfeld ever obsessed over, he wrote, “We never obsess over anything that isn’t mundane. Most recent was intentional mumbling. We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can’t reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it’s big, huge, gigantic. Even bigger than that Amazon package.”
The last time Seinfeld and David collaborated on a script was for the hourlong season 7 “Seinfeld” episode “The Cadillac,” which aired in 1996.
Seinfeld and David first met as stand-up comedians in New York City in the late 1970s. Their collaboration, “Seinfeld,” was a top-rated hit and lasted on NBC for nine seasons.
Seinfeld also made a cameo on David’s HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and David has appeared as a guest on Seinfeld’s Web series.
