Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

Good One: A Podcast About Jokes is a podcast about - well - jokes, and the people who tell them. Each week, a comedian will play one of their jokes and then break it down with Senior Editor Jesse David Fox.


episode 84: Seinfeld’s Comedic Purgatory with Jonah Ray and Dave Schilling

This week, host Jesse David Fox sits down with comedian and Mystery Science Theater 3000 host Jonah Ray and writer Dave Schilling to do a special crossover episode with their podcast, Galaxy Brains that’s all about Jesse’s favorite sitcom of all time, Seinfeld.

Jesse, Jonah, and Dave discuss whether or not Seinfeld’s best joke is actually that these characters who hate each other are stuck together for eternity. Is Seinfeld actually an elaborate dramatization of purgatory? They also dive into what each character represents in Jerry’s psyche, how Jerry’s approach to comedy differs from Larry David’s, and if Seinfeld was the pinnacle of New York comedy.
