Think you know Seinfeld TV show trivia? I’ve put together some trivia questions from the TV show Seinfeld that I think any sitcom fan would be interested in.
The show ran from 1989 to 1998 (nine seasons) and was often described as a "show about nothing." It was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld and starred Jerry, Jason Alexander as his best friend, George Costanza, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as his former girlfriend Elaine Benes and Michael Richards as his crazy neighbor Cosmo Kramer.
The show created some of the most memorable catch phrases of all time, such as master of your domain, close talker, Festivus, the manssiere, soup nazi, spongeworthy and what seems like a million others. I still hear people say, "Yada, Yada, Yada" and the show where that phrase was uttered aired in 1997!
There's no doubt that the show about nothing must have been about something to permeate our consciousness to such a degree. I got to see Jerry perform his stand-up routine live a few years after the show ended. He jokingly remarked that he was the only one to survive the show. (as he was the only character to use his real name.)
But, let's get back to the trivia. You may find some of these trivia questions a little easier than some of the others, but I think you will find all of them to be challenging.
Test yourself and see how you do.
15 correct – You truly are “Master of Your Domain”
11-14 correct – Jerry buys you dinner at Mendy’s.
6-10 correct – Kramer moves in next door and has a key to your house.
0-5 correct – You receive an atomic wedgie.
