Jerry Seinfeld plays a fictionalized version of himself in his hit sitcom, Seinfeld.  Much like his real life counterpart, the Jerry on the show is a stand-up comedian.  Jerry lives in an apartment in New York City and most plot lines revolve around his crazy dating life as he plays the straight man to George and Kramer's wild adventures.

Jerry: "Don't you know the difference between seltzer and salsa?! You have the seltzer after the salsa!"
