The sitcom, which was created by comedians Larry David and Larry Seinfeld, paved its own way in American tv by drawing inspiration from minute details of real-life experience, becoming one of the most well-loved tv shows of all time while leaving fans, critics, and even crew members scratching their heads over its popularity. This month on Finding The Funny, Ezra Zaid talks to Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, author of Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything, about the world of Seinfeld.
