Allan Sherman and the Seinfeld Gang

I know, I know -- everyone wants to grab a little of the Seinfeld show glow and bend it in their direction.

But with Allan Sherman, the glow turns in his direction naturally.

First, Seinfeld star Jason Alexander offered a terrific blurb for my book praising Allan Sherman as a "brilliant wit, satirist beyond compare."

Thank you again Jason Alexander.

Then there was Jerry Seinfeld and friend Joel Hodgson talking here about Sherman on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

Now we have a trifecta with this video of Larry David singing Sherman's "Shake Hands With Your Uncle Max" with the Boston Pops on August 7, 2011. (The video was filmed by one Marilyn Rowland.)



And here is Sherman singing the same song, which appeared on his first album, My Son, The Folk Singer.



Anything out there confirming either Michael Richards (Kramer) or Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) as fans?
