Robin Williams Vs Jerry Seinfeld

Robin Williams Vs Jerry Seinfeld

For this battle, each has their strength: Seinfeld clearly has the TV battle won, and Williams has had some hits in the movies. But each has a different style from the other (not that there’s anything wring with that), and it comes down to which one is funnier to you.

For my money, it’s Williams, but Jerry is a very close secind.

What say you?

    I prefer Williams. Not for his comedy, but for his “touching” roles.
    He conveys a real sense of sadness while keeping us entertained with little jokes and funny quirks.

    Ugh. This is a hard one because my determining factor would be which one I like the least, and let me tell you that both are pretty low on my comedic scale.

    @Matapiojo

    I know what you mean, but Williams is funnier

    I would say Robin because he has been in some movies other than comedy, there was this one scientific movie that was really neat, it was about how these people came out of a coma-state of about a month and then went back in. It was pretty powerful, so I say him just for his versatility in movies.

    One Hour Photo versus…

    …Name a good movie that Jerry Seinfeld has done?

  9. kano547 March 6, 2009 at 8:17 pm -      #9

    no movies lw just a few episodes on tv oh yea that was 9 seasons of his own show for which nbc literaly begged him to do a tenth even going so far as to try to give him the nbc company jet

    It’s spelled L-W, the hyphen may seem incredibly subtle, but it’s there for a reason.

    As for Seinfeld, well…

    I am probably the only Jewish person aged between 18 and 50 who cannot stand Jerry Seinfeld’s sitcom. All the various Jews I’ve lived with over the years subjugate me to this painful, painful show that is shown in syndication about 379 times daily, give or take a few. To explain my hatred, I have compiled a list:

    1.) Jerry Seinfeld cannot act: He cannot spell act. He couldn’t find Acts in the Bible (probably because it’s in the New Testament, but that’s neither here nor there). He’s playing himself and he’s not believable. It’s like he wants to behave like Woody Allen in Annie Hall, but fails to live up to that standard.

    2) Long setups for bad jokes: This is the biggest reason for me. The show will spend twenty minutes (and nine minutes of commercial) setting up thirty seconds of punch line. And it’s always a dumb punch line you saw coming like the queasiness that comes with eating hot dogs from a New Orleans street vendor.* Whoa, you mean to say George spent the entire episode trying to get the Frogger machine home only not get it home? I never saw that coming! What great irony!

    Sometimes the irony is so heavy-handed, and so predictable, that I feel like I’m watching a bad M. Night Shyamalan movie. They’re in modern times all along? He’s the supervillain?

    3) It feels like an inside joke, and I’m on the outside. Boy, living in New York in the 1990s sure is amusing! The bathrooms in Grand Central Station are dirty. Traffic is so bad you recognize your neighbors by the cars they drive while you’re stuck behind them.

    I avoid Seinfeld like I avoid the plague.

    – – –

    Whereas Robin Williams, as much as I hate his recent lineup of comedy schmaltz (Scratch that: loathe), has at least had a respectable career as an actor (Something that Jerry Seinfeld should try at least once) over the course of his life.

    Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, The Birdcage, Good Will Hunting, Insomnia, One Hour Photo. Heck, even Mork and Mindy is far more tolerable as a television sitcom. Jerry Seinfeld lived and died within that nine year period, Robin Williams has at least had a career beyond his repeated Academy, Golden Globe, Emmy, Grammy, SAG and American Comedy Awards successes (Of which Williams has ten of, compared to Jerry’s two).

    wow that was umm oh thats the problem my rant radar is broken and if you scroll up you will see i said i like williams better even though i own all 9 seasons of seinfeld i think its funny you hate jerry and i understand that and i agree he lived and died in those 9 seasons but while he was alive i liked his show why you ranted i dont know and another thing my hyphen button is missing thats why i didnt put one in your name

  12. Baron Somebody March 6, 2009 at 10:54 pm -      #12

    Jerry relys on that annoying accent too much…

  13. L-W March 6, 2009 at 11:21 pm -      #13

    Is your comma key broken also?! At least my rant was coherent, it flowed, it functioned and was at least readable. I could barely read that…whatever you called that.

    Here, I have a dozen functioning Keyboards sitting in my closet, you can come around and take one if need be.

    wow way to kick someone trying to agree with you in the nuts and thats all i have to say on this post

  15. L-W March 7, 2009 at 12:31 am -      #15

    Not to kick your metaphysical nuts, but reading an entire post squashed into the space of a single sentence is not only nauseating, but in the instances of multiple lines can cause whiplash.

    Please, take one of my keyboards, the comma, period, caps lock and shift keys all work!

    “I am probably the only Jewish person aged between 18 and 50 who cannot stand Jerry Seinfeld’s sitcom.”

    Nope. I hate that show.

    ” L-W, the hyphen may seem incredibly subtle, but it’s there for a reason.”
    That is?

    Anyway, I really hated seinfeld. And yes, I loved robins golf description.

    And i will PWN you all in Resistance 2……But thats only if you have it.

    Thier both not very funny.

  21. Baron Somebody March 8, 2009 at 1:33 am -      #21

    @L-W

    Metaphysical nuts? really? I didn’t know he had godly testicles, but I think the word you were looking for was metaphorical…OH YA TAKE THAT I JUST CORRECTED YOU HARDY HAR HAR

  22. L-W March 8, 2009 at 9:30 am -      #22

    Metaphorical, metaphysical, metabolic…

    You still fail in every respect. Two thumbs down.

  23. Baron Somebody March 8, 2009 at 2:28 pm -      #23

    Really? I fail? Not that I mind your word choice error, but you would be doing the same thing to me if I picked the wrong word…

  24. L-W March 9, 2009 at 2:27 am -      #24

    So let me get this straight.

    You wait for the better half of a year to find an opportunity to gloat (Judging from your reaction it was a pretty desperate attempt), and when you finally do catch me out, it’s not on the basis of some factual, logical, clinical or analytical error; but that of a minor Freudian slip of which I have only just noticed two days after the initial post…

    (In fact Baron, if you’ve paid attention, it has been the analytical and blindingly obvious errors that I have corrected you upon, not grammatical or correlative failures.)

    …And have recognised in itself as a mistake on my behalf?

    Damn Baron, your life must be interesting as a plain Cracker, I’ve eaten Omelets that have lived more than you.

  25. Baron Somebody March 9, 2009 at 3:25 pm -      #25

    *Sniffle* such hateful words…I’m touched…no, but I didn’t think you would take it this seriously as to say I “fail” you could have just either accepted it (NOT in a hostile manner) or retorted with something back…but I don’t really care anyone I just wanted to see your reaction

  26. flyboy51 March 9, 2009 at 7:13 pm -      #26

    You guys are taking some things waaayyy too seriously.

  27. L-W March 9, 2009 at 7:52 pm -      #27

    You just keep reassuring yourself.

    By the way, I’ll be sending you information from community and activity centers, with a few career aptitude tests. You really need to get out and enjoy your life, not being cooped up in your house, obsessing over me and awaiting for a reply.

    You can’t sit around all day waiting for life to fall into your lap Baron, you’ve got to go out and take it.

  28. Baron Somebody March 9, 2009 at 10:33 pm -      #28

    I do enjoy life, although things could be better…I do parkour regulary, and I write and create art…if you wanna see one of the things I made here’s a link

    If your choosing who is more funny then it is Robin Williams easily.. Jerry is good but Robin is greatness

  30. Evil Monkey March 25, 2009 at 6:52 pm -      #30

    Jerry Seinfeld sucks at comedy, its a wonder that his show is still on the air…

  31. Grim August 23, 2009 at 9:46 pm -      #31

    Was Sienfield ever funny? weas he ever anything but but anoying?

    i tried getting into his show and just couldnt. only one that was funny on that show was Jason Alexander.

    But Williams on the other had is funny even when doing a serious role but in a good way (like that scene in Bicentenial Man when asked if he would like to come closer to the window)

    Sorry but Jerry is by no means a close second, third, hell he isnt even in teh same ballpark as williams
