the most inspired character creation in comedy?
Possibly, if he weren't based on a real person and if George Costanza wasn't in the same show.
George is the one who makes the show for me
South Park, Seinfeld, The Simpsons.
Also, every great comedy needs an "s" in the title.
The Office, The Simpsons, South Park, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, etc.
The Day Today
League of Gentlemen
Alan Partridge is played by *S*teve Coogan.
The Day Today isn't as good as Bra*s**s* Eye.
League Of Gentlemen is the exception.
Waiting for God
One Foot In The Grave
I am, of course, joking.
it was basically michael richard's stage act in the first place.
but love the show.
its only because michael richards is a closet nazi.
has anyone seen the new curb? i thought he came off quite well in it actually. bit of a tangent but i felt a bit sorry for him having a breakdown on stage and all, its just a shame he was so.... racist about it
michael richards made kramer though really, but i would have to say george and his philosophy on life is truly inspired
The things that stop Kramer from being the "most inspired comedy creation" are that his catchphrases and trademarks (however laugh out loud they may be) can be unnecessarily roped in and his plotlines can veer into the overly absurd (particularly in later seasons.) And Michael Richards' overly rigid set of "Kramer tricks" deprives the character of another diemension, which the others have.
Talking about Seinfeld, check out the gradient on the Elaine hotness scale...beginning of season 9=nice!
my favourite ever scene in seinfeld:
