Michael Richards

So what’s up with Kramer?

You don’t hear much about him and seeing his IMDB page it looks like he hasn’t done much since 2007. Looks like he’ll be doing some voice work in a movie this year though.
Did he attempt to go on comedy tours again?
Do you think people have forgotten about the “incident” yet? I wonder if he’s done any standup after the incident.

If he hasn’t already, I think he should go on Oprah some time, that seems to be the elixir that cures all the celeb blues. Throw Tiger Woods in there for good measure.

I mean, he was on Curb Your Enthusiasm quite a bit this year. Isn’t that listed in the IMDB?

I think a UHF sequel is in order.

Oh, you’re right… he’s listed as “Self”, so I guess he is finding stuff to do!

He pretty much became toxic after the N-word incident of '06.
But even before, it didn’t look like he had been doing much. “Bee Movie,” the made-for-TV version of “David Copperfield” and the short lived “Michael Richards Show” look to be his only credits between “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
Which is unfortunate, because he really is a pretty talented comic actor. What he did with Kramer on “Seinfeld” was almost magical.

The stuff that he did on Curb Your Enthusiasm was great. I nearly choked at his reaction to Leon knocking on his door dressed like Farrakhan.

Television and movies aren’t the only work an actor or comedian can get. There’s also theatre, radio, audio recordings, and stand-up comedy. Has anyone checked the ITTB or IBDB to see if Richards has any credits there?

He’s currently being held prisoner at Channel 8.

I second that.

I’m thinking of something orange… something orange. Give up? It’s an orange!

“It’s time for the FIRE HOSE!”


“What’s in the box? Nothing? Absolutely nothing! Stupid! You’re so stupid!”

I can’t believe Weird Al never had a chance to make another movie.

Stanley Spadowski: “George, you know I was wondering, like if you were traveling through outer space, I mean like you’re going real fast, like the speed of light, you know… hoooohhhhh… and all of a sudden you started screaming… aaaahhhhh aaaaahhhhh… Do you think your brain would blow up?”

Well he was in the Naked Gun, and the Naked Gun 33 1/3 I believe.

Was that a successful full retard?

UHF is a great movie, ruined only by a pedestrian plot.

This is my new mop. George, my friend, he gave me this mop. This is a pretty good mop. It’s not as good as my first mop. I miss my first mop, but this is still a good mop. Sometimes you just hafta take what life gives ya, 'cause life is like a mop and sometimes life gets full of dirt and crud and bugs and hairballs and stuff… you, you, you gotta clean it out. You, you, you gotta put it in here and rinse it off and start all over again and, and sometimes, sometimes life sticks to the floor so bad you know a mop, a mop, it’s not good enough, it’s not good enough. You, you gotta get down there, like, with a toothbrush, you know, and you gotta, you gotta really scrub 'cause you gotta get it off. You gotta really try to get it off. But if that doesn’t work, that doesn’t work, you can’t give up. You gotta, you gotta stand right up. You, you gotta run to a window and say, “Hey! These floors are dirty as hell, and I’m not gonna take it any more!”

Spatula City!


Has any other entertainer fucked up as badly as he did and been able to come back to their previous “level” ?

Eh. It’s not like he had much of a career after Seinfeld. Most stars from successful sitcoms never reach that level again, even if they manage to keep their feelings about black people to themselves.
