Comedian Kenny Kramer (the inspiration of Cosmo Kramer on the hit sitcom "Seinfeld") chatted with Digital Journal about the documentary "Miracle on 42nd Street."
"It was a great experience to be part of Manhattan Plaza," he said. "To live in a community of creative people was very stimulating, to say the least."
"I was a single parent and it was a wonderful opportunity to raise my young daughter and a very safe and caring environment," he added.
Regarding his plans for 2020, he said, "I can't think or imagine what I will be doing next all the gigs I have booked I've been canceled. I don’t anticipate that they going to allow performances in theaters for at least a year so we’ll see what happens. It might be a good opportunity to retire."
He had nothing but the greatest remarks about the documentary's director Alice Elliott. "Alice is wonderful. She did not direct me in the movie but I remembered that she did direct me to do a PSA promo for the movie. I kept blowing it and we had must've taken 15 takes before I got it right but she was very patient and encouraging as was Lisa Shreve, the film's editor. Both ladies are total pros and a pleasure to work with," he said.
Most impressive about Kenny Kramer is that he was the inspiration behind the character Cosmo Kramer on the hit sitcom, Seinfeld. "It was quite exciting, especially since there was so much media interest in me. All the TV shows newspaper articles radio interviews opened many great doors for me in terms of my career as a comedian," he explained.
Kramer concluded about the documentary, Miracle on 42nd Street, "It's a good movie and it's also very entertaining, but it's also important that people in public housing or government housing should see this movie and realize what a great experiment Manhattan Plaza was and is, and it should be replicated in the cities all over the country."
