Hello Fellow Seinfans:
Yesterday was some day in the life of Real Kramer. For those of you who
missed it on Thursday January 18 the "official" announcement of
KRAMERS REALITY TOUR was published on
the cover of the Metro section of The New York Times
in a story written by John Tierney.
Starting at 5 AM my life became a media frenzy. Twelve hours later I had
done TV interviews with Hard Copy, Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight,
Current Affair, Extra, Fox 5 news, WCBS TV News, and WPIX TV News, NY 1
News, plus three or four radio shows and probably one or two more that I'm
forgetting. It's still kind of a blur. Most of the interviews were done
in my apartment. It was a zoo with one or two TV crews waiting in the lobby
of my building for most of the morning and afternoon. The power of the New
York Times combined with the popularity of Seinfeld...WOW.
Larry called a couple of times yesterday. Both he and Jerry are getting
a tremendous kick out of all the publicity I've been getting. It's really
a fun time for me.
As part of the article my 800 number was published and the phone has been
ringing off the hook since Thursday morning. I'm letting the answering machine
take the calls now or I'd never finish writing this. There is a message
giving out Tele-charge's phone number. I did and still do answer some calls
myself and all the Seinfans who I spoke to have been Just great, really
supportive and encouraging. At 5:15 today, as I was writing this got my
first crank phone call. The voice said "Hello Newman" and hung
I gotta go now. I've been trying to get to the Jacuzzi for the past six
hours. I just wanted to keep you informed as to what's happennin.
About Al the soup guy, he takes great umbrage with the N-word. He's a good
guy and his soup is really out of this world. I had a seafood bisque the
other day and I couldn't believe the chunks of lobster and amount of shrimp.
It's defiantly going to be a reality tour pit-stop when we run it mid-week
matinee. (He's closed Sat. & Sun)
