The comic who had a sitcom about nothing appeared at the Kennedy Center in Washington on Saturday and talked about, well, nothing, reports The Washington Post. Furthermore, people paid $60 each to hear him. Speaking from the stage, clutching the mic, wearing a three-button suit and tie, Seinfeld, 47, chatted about many things, including dating and even the “definite possibility” of a “Seinfeld” reunion. Dating, of course, is something in his past, now that he and his wife of two years, Jessica Sklar, are the proud parents of daughter Sascha, who turned 1 in November. But he still remembers doing it. “Twenty-five years of dating. Do you know how exhausting that is? ‘So your sister is leasing a Hyundai Elantra?’ ” he said, feigning a yawn. “‘I’d like to sleep with you, but I’m having trouble hanging in. I’ve got to be honest. I don’t want another drink. I’ll take a Ritalin if you have it.’ ” As for a reunion, the chances of that occurring are even more likely once the careers of all four stars go down the tubes. So far, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander had shows that died quickly. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss has a new show in the works for NBC. As Seinfeld said, “Two down, and two to go.”
