Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has made a stunning admission in regards to the hit ‘90s sitcom that made him a household name.
Jerry Seinfeld has revealed that if he could, he’d return and “fix” some Seinfeld episodes.
The comic opened up about his hit sitcom throughout a press convention selling his new Netflix comedy sequence this week.
“There’s a number of them that I would love another crack at, but I don’t really believe philosophically in changing or even thinking about the past,” Seinfeld admitted however he wouldn’t disclose which episodes particularly.
“It’s just my philosophy of life,” he added. “It just happened the way it happened and we’re going to go from here and that’s the best way to live. I think regret is a philosophical position that I disagree with. That kind of assumes you could have changed the past but if you forced me or and you gave me a time machine, yeah, there’s a few where I would fix some things.”
Seinfeld was additionally agency in his stance about by no means watching the long-lasting sitcom regardless of its recognition. “I don’t watch the show,” he stated. “How often have you pulled out your high school yearbook?”
The humorist, 67, spoke about how comedy can usually be a tough medium to work in.
“It’s just hard to be funny,” Seinfeld advised reporters. “Everybody kind of thinks they’re funny or wants to be funny, but even the people that are great at being funny aren’t funny a lot of the time because it’s just a tricky, subtle thing that evokes that response of laughter [from an audience].”
“It’s just hard [to get right] but it’s worth it,” he added. “Whenever you see a comedian, what you’re seeing is the stuff that every audience before you liked. And that’s why it’s still in the show because most of the stuff does not work.”

It was very successful.’ And I and I said to him, ‘Well, I was at a point we had done it for nine years and I realised I could go off the air right now and the show could be a legend. I could be a legend of the sitcom world or I could make some more money. I could risk that to make some more money.’ I said, ‘What would you do?’,” Seinfeld stated.
“He said, ‘I’d go for legend.’ I said, ‘Yeah, that’s what I thought.’ So we went for a legend,” Seinfeld added, concerning rumours of getting the solid again collectively for a reboot or reunion episode.
