What is the cast of Seinfeld doing now? Seinfeld was THE SHOW that set the benchmark for
sitcoms. A show about “Nothing”, Seinfeld premiered in 1989. The show has been loved and has
millions of fans all over the world. Seinfeld is one of the very few shows that was still good even when it ended after 9 successful seasons in 1998 (*cough cough* Game of Thrones). The show was so successful that, many critics claimed that the other hit sitcom Friends, was inspired by this. A lot of minor similarities can be found between the two. As a matter of fact, even Jerry Seinfeld said that Friends was just Seinfeld with better a better-looking cast. Seinfeld was offered $5 million for each episode if he agreed to a 10th season. Well, what happened to the cast of Seinfeld?

started getting bored. And he claims that the show is still so popular because they bowed out when
they did. Now, let us see what the cast of Seinfeld is doing now?
1| What is Jerry Seinfeld doing now?
After the last season of Seinfeld aired in 1998, Seinfeld went back to being a full-time comedian
and did not venture into acting. He toured a show called “I’m telling you for the last time”, for years
and years. You can watch the show on Netflix.
Seinfeld is one of the most successful and richest comedians in the world. You would be interested
to know that one of the shows he acted in before Seinfeld called Benson, and he was fired without
even being informed because he had some creative differences with the creators. He still makes a
lot of money from Seinfeld itself. He is one of the very few comedians who is a Billionaire.
In 2012, he started hosting a Netflix web series Comedians in Cars getting Coffee. He also
produces it. The show is just a casual conversation between comedians about everything under
the sun and it’s so funny. Cos let’s face it, they are comedians. LOL. The show has been streamed
over 100 million times and needless to say, it is also a success.
Seinfeld is extremely passionate about stand-up comedy and says that he will perform stand-up for
as long as he can.
