1. Where was the first script for "Seinfeld" written by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld?

Answer: Diner

Interesting Information:
The first script for "Seinfeld" was written at Westway Diner on 44th and 9th avenue in New York. NBC wanted to do something with Jerry Seinfeld so they sat down together and instead of a one hour/two hour comedy special they wrote the first script of a sitcom. Basically, the sitcom would be four people going about their day-to-day lives.

Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld would fire the majority of the writers at the end of every season and hire new ones for the next season so they could have fresh ideas. The sitcom's shooting schedule would also begin on a Wednesday and film on a Tuesday so Larry and Jerry could do any rewrites over the weekend.

The female lead would be a waitress at the restaurant called Pete's where Jerry and George would eat and talk about their day. Lee Garlington won the part of the waitress. After the pilot for "Seinfeld" was seen as weak, Lee Garlington's waitress character was let go from "Seinfeld". Difficulty: Hard.

George had lied to his date, saying that he is a marine biologist. He has no choice but to go into the water and try to save the whale. He eventually pulls out a golf ball from the whale's blow hole - a Titleist which is the brand of gold balls Kramer had been hitting in the ocean. The ensuing story that is told to the group from George is a classic "Seinfeld" moment which Jerry himself has said is his favourite scene from the whole series. Difficulty: Easy.

4. "Seinfeld" (1989-1998) was purported to be a TV show about nothing but that was not the case. In 2014, Jerry Seinfeld in a web interview put the matter to rest by definitively stating what the show was really about, which was?

Answer: How a comedian obtains his material

Interesting Information:
In 2014 on a web blog, fans were discussing what "Seinfeld" was actually about, Jerry Seinfeld joined in the conversation and said "I will give you an answer" and stated "The pitch for the show, the real pitch, when Larry and I went to NBC in 1988, was we want to show how a comedian gets his material. The show about nothing was just a joke in an episode many years later, and Larry and I to this day are surprised that it caught on as a way that people describe the show, because to us it's the opposite of that".

The show is based on the real life experiences of Mr Seinfeld and Larry David (the character George Costanza is based on Larry David). For the first seven seasons the 23 minute show is book-ended by Jerry Seinfeld doing his own stand up routine where the content is pertinent to the same episode.

The reference to a particular episode in the quote is where Jerry and George pitch a show based on their own lives at NBC (the TV network which actually picked up "Seinfeld"). They describe it as a "show about nothing" (Seinfeld was very self-referential. It had a lead playing a character of the same name pitching a sit-com to TV executives in the same way "Seinfeld was pitched towards NBC).

So while the meta-fiction "Jerry" was a show about nothing, the 'real' show Seinfeld was about the wry observations made by a comedian on everyday life. Difficulty: Hard.

New York City and its neuroses, Making feasible the improbable, Egotism and narcissism

Interesting Information:

Because of a misunderstanding Jerry inadvertently agrees to wear a puffy shirt, designed by Kramer's current girlfriend Leslie, for an interview on "The Today Show". The interview is a disaster because Bryant Gumbel can't stop laughing at the shirt. In typical "Seinfeld" fashion there are several storylines going on involving the characters but all are affected by the puffy shirt. Difficulty: Very Easy.
