Watch Jerry Stiller (RIP) make his Seinfeld co-stars laugh themselves out of character

Originally published at:


That is a favorite old Seinfeld clip. One thing I always notice is the 4th actor in the scene: the blonde actress playing George’s “girlfriend” for that episode. While all the other, high-paid, series regulars are cracking themselves up and blowing takes, she is making every effort to stay professional, not be the one to crack, or blow the take etc. because she knows THEY are allowed to break as much as they want, she isn’t. I’ve always admired her for keeping it together.


Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander were just talking about this scene last week. I’ve cued up the discussion below, but the entire video is worth watching.


Thanks for this!
