Jerry Seinfeld revealed on Reddit that he will join forces with Larry David again, though he hasn’t given away too many details. Seinfeld participated in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread and when one user asked, “What is the most mundane thing you and Larry have obsessed over?” Seinfeld answered, “We never obsess over anything that isn’t mundane. Most recent was intentional mumbling. We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can’t reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it’s big, huge, gigantic.”

Seinfeld also talked about how he first met David. “I actually was eavesdropping on him talking to another comedian, and I wasn’t even in comedy yet,” he said. “But he was leaning on my car in front of the Improv on 9th Ave and 44th Street, and this would be probably 1975. That was the first time I ever saw him. But we didn’t talk … Then when we finally did talk in the bar Catch a Rising Star on 1st Ave and 78th Street 2 or 3 years after that, we couldn’t stop talking. We were both obsessed with the smallest possible issue.”

Seinfeld also voiced some skepticism toward modern day imaginations of his TV show on Twitter, like the account @SeinfeldToday. “Larry David and I sat through hundreds of ideas that people wanted to do on the show,” he wrote. “And most of the ideas are not good. Which I saw Larry say the other day on some show, somebody asked him the same question and he said ‘I know you think it’s funny, but it’s really hard.’ The ideas that Larry and I would respond to, I don’t even know, they just need to be very unique. It’s just a lot harder than it seems to come up with. And particularly for that show, where we tried to do things that were unusual, and you had to go through a lot of ideas to find the ones you like.”

Seinfeld currently hosts a web show called “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
