Seinfeld: Behind the Scenes
My dad was a great comedian (Amy Stiller).
Mr. Costanza, George's father on Seinfeld, was played by actor Jerry Stiller (1927-2020). Here are some clips from the "Inside Looks" on the DVDs as well as a few bloopers to showcase some of his funniest work on the show, from replacing the actor who originally played Frank, to his acting technique and line memorization quirks, to stories on the set and outtakes from Seasons 4-9. And new Seinfeld bloopers have been found recently for diehards to enjoy:

Unreleased Seinfeld bloopers

That Seinfeld show was really something.
(Jon Lott) This DVD of Seinfeld bloopers was found at a flea market with a homemade cover and an unmarked DVD inside.  Most of these bloopers did not make it into the official Seinfeld DVD blooper reels.  It was produced in 2000 and consists of unseen bloopers and outtakes from many seasons. It seems to be a bootleg copy of a Seinfeld blooper disc distributed only to the cast and crew soon after the series ended.
