Happy birthday, Jerry Seinfeld! The king of sitcom comedy turns 61 today. . .not that there’s anything wrong with that.

A decade before his sitcom, Seinfeld, would change the TV comedy landscape forever, young Jerry Seinfeld had a (very) short-lived role on the show Benson as Frankie, a delivery boy and aspiring comedian who could get no laughs. Seinfeld was fired after three episodes, but he had no trouble getting laughs on his own as a successful stand-up comic and sitcom star in his show “about nothing.”
