    Here's my set-up for this spin-off I came up with last summer. The scene will be in the nightclub (a no-brainer, right), with Jerry Seinfeld as the star. Water will be provided in a cup, sitting on a stool on the stage just in case his "whistle dries up" (no pun intended) (Plus, I saw it in the extra stand-up footage with Seinfeld, and figured even a comedian like him needs that water). The intro will be when the announcer introduces Jerry Seinfeld, and he comes in, microphone provided on a mic stand for him. The outro will be photoshots of Jerry doing comedy in the nightclub (like it occasionally happened in Seinfeld; However, what leads to it is Jerry saying his usual "Thank you very much" before he exits the nightclub, and the audience is applauding Jerry). George, Elaine, and Kramer are part of the audience, and yes, Kramer's going to have that laugh, so you'll laugh a whole lot more easier now that I told you that.

    That's how the setting for the made-up spin-off I came up with. What do you think?

    I think that would make a very productive spin-off, too.

    The Soup Nazi. Having been put out of business by Elaine revealing his soup recipes, he moves to some small hick town in Kansas where nobody has heard of lobster bisque and starts a new restaurant with even more demanding standards of procedure. Until he meets a blue-eyed country girl who warms his cold, foreign ideals-filled heart. But what's this? She's a Christian! That's right, Soup Nazi. "No sex for you!"


    LOL. The Soup Nazi isn't a strong enough character to hold a series though.


    Agreed. Yev Kasem has no depth other than being a short-tempered chef. He would have to change dramatically.

    I know these ideas were for the late 1990s / early 2000s. Len Lesser passed away in February of 2011.

    So your spin-off is Jerry doing stand-up the whole time? That's not exactly different from how the original show was and would be tiresome show after show.

    They should reanimate his corpse for the show. Seasom one will be a reality show based on the process.

    I released this idea years ago. What I could do to spice it up is to have him do specials at different venues all over the country, like when they are one hour specials or TV movies or what have you.

    Now that I think about it, it would be quite tiresome, but I love hearing his comedy, which was the thing I loved the most about the show anyways.
