Seinfeld Wraps ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ With Kramer
Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards — best known as “Cosmo Kramer” — reunited for an episode of Seinfeld’s web series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
The reunion marks one of the few high-profile appearences Richards has done since his infamous racist tirade in Nov. 2006. Richards was performing at the famous L.A. comedy club the Laugh Factory when a heckler interrupted him. Instead of brushing him off and going on with the show, he started calling the heckler the n-word, aiming all kinds of racist epithets at him and eventually making most of the audience leave in disgust. Since then, and despite repeated apologies, he basically disappeared from the entertainment universe.
In the season finale of Seinfeld’s web show, the pair address the elephant in the room and Richards apologizes for the incident. “I busted up after that event seven years ago,” he said. “It broke me down. It was a selfish response. I took it too personally. I should have just said, ‘Yeah, you’re absolutely right. I’m not funny.'”
