It’s been 25 years since the best show about nothing premiered on NBC on July 5 way back in 1989. To make you feel really old, I was only about 4 at the time, but it would be years later with the help of numerous reruns that I would come to appreciate it’s genius. Created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the first season only featured 4 episodes, but thankfully the ratings were just good enough to help it secure a second season. It then went on to become one of the most watched, and quoted shows in television history, with it’s series finale attracting a little over 76 million viewers.

I kind of cringe when I see Jerry Seinfeld these days. NOT because he’s getting older, but because I’M getting older by seeing that JERRY is getting older. So, as such, I watch ‘Seinfeld’ whenever I need to escape to the glory days of the 90’s.

I used to dress like Elaine Benes.  Big old dresses, big curly hair piled up just so, dorky shoes and socks, maybe a little Seattle-grungier, but still. And hey…how come Julia Louis-Dreyfus hasn’t aged at-bloody-ALL?

Anyway. Happy Birthday, Jerry.  Oh–Jerry is touring right now and you can find tickets here. Not that there’s anything WRONG with wanting to see Jerry’s new stand-up!
