Seinfeld reveals new project with David

It's about 'international mumbling,' the comedian revealed, unhelpfully

Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have teamed up for a new project, and it’s big. And… well, that’s it.

Other than the fact that the thing is about “intentional mumbling” and that we will see it “eventually,” Seinfeld revealed little else about the script while answering audience questions on Reddit’s AMA, or “Ask me Anything,” feature allows members of the popular social website to ask questions to significant figures. Seinfeld opened up to questions on Monday.

David was the co-creator of “Seinfeld,” and its head writer, and the creator of the semi-fictionalized, somewhat autobiographical “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Although he was reticent about the new mystery project, he was more vocal on other topics. In the interactive interview the comedian spoke about going for bagels and lox with his kids, scrapping an episode of “Seinfeld” in which Jerry buys a handgun, his favorite supporting character on the show (Newman!), and much, much more.

Oh yeah, and there was also that plug for season three of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, with a debut episode featuring Louis C.K. It’s no “Seinfeld” part two, but it’ll do until “eventually” finally hits.

Despite his hit show being off the air for 15 years, Seinfeld was last year again ranked No. 1 on Forbes’s list of the industry’s highest-earning comedians. The magazine compiled a list of Hollywood’s 10 richest funnymen, based on concert ticket sales and industry insider estimates, landing Seinfeld in the top slot for the third year in a row.

According to Forbes, Seinfeld earned an estimated $27 million from more than 70 concerts between June 2012 and June 2013, which, combined with royalties from reruns of ‘Seinfeld’, garnered him a total of $32 million in annual earnings.
