Synopsis

Seinfeld was first conceived in the late 1980's by top US stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld with friend Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Saturday Night Live).

Originally titled "Stand Up", the show revolves around a comedian and how he gets his material.

Nothing much happens as far as story arcs are concerned (the cast don't end up sleeping with each other at one point or another), but each episode is crammed full of completely-impossible-and-yet-totally-likely events that could only come from the combined insanity that is Seinfeld/David.

Jerry Seinfeld plays himself, the comedian.

A regular character is George, Jerry's best friend. George is neurotic and a complete misfit, who understands human interaction like Saddam Hussein understands diplomacy.

Jerry's neighbour, Kramer, is possibly the most well-rendered character in the history of television, with his trademark door-opening technique and unmanagable hair.

Jerry's ex-girlfriend Elaine rounds off the cast.
