Raymond might be your blue collar average joe, but he's still just a writer. I'd say Jerry has an advantage on him, besides living in New York City,
he also is a thief (stole a marble rye) and also spent about 8 months in jail.
I don't get Everybody Loves Raymond. It is total rubbish. I mean, I don't go for american sit-coms like that, but Seinfield was FUNNY, The Larry
Sanders Show was FUNNY. Raymond is just a muppet. A better name for the show would be: "No one gives a damn about that cold wet sap Raymond, and
don't get me started on his 'comedy' brother"
We all have our opinion, but just because you dont see him as funny doesn't make him... Not funny. Raymonds humour is no different than Seinfields.
It is that same simple humour that you run into in daily life. His is more focused on relationships with spouses and family, where Seinfields was
almost strictly friends.
I see the two of them as the same type of comedian. Anyone else see this connection?
I gotta go with senfeld here. Greatest comedy show ever(even better than the three stooges, which I love). I would put Rays dad up against Georges
dad, now that would be a contest, they both split my sides.
All right, I think I'd like to start a "class action law suit" against that "Everyone Loves Raymond" television show. The fact is
everyonedoes not love Raymond. In fact, I detest that show and I destest Raymond. So where do I find a lawyer that will help me
inititiate this legal case? Can anyone remember the name of that lawyer who defended Kramer against that cafe on the Seinfeld show. He's definitely
the guy that I want in on this case.

Both shows are hilarious. I'd give a slight edge to Seinfeld.
If you don't think Brad Garrett is funny, and you ever have a chance to see him in person, I'd bet you change your mind. He was necessarily reined
in pretty good on Raymond. Given the chance to just riff, he's as funny as anybody I've ever seen.
