Jerry Seinfeld is Back…to Reality
Jerry Seinfeld and jokes about marriage is a near perfect amalgam of Jewish comedy. He broadcasted such humor for nine years on his hit TV series “Seinfeld,” though, I’m willing to bet that his humor has sharpened a bit in the 11 years since he quit television, got married and has spent more time with his wife. He’s clearly learned a thing or two, evinced by his return to the airwaves with a marriage-themed reality show.
The comedian tells Variety:
So what’s the big idea?
Jerry pitched the idea to NBC Chairman Ben Silverman (who I’m told is quite desperate for a hit) along with Rakieten, an executive producer of the “Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Though there is no premiere date yet, we’ll wait with bated breath.
