Soup for everyone!
“Seinfeld“‘s Soup Nazi, played by actor Larry Thomas, is showing off his softer side this holiday season. The character, along with Original SoupMan CEO Jamie Karson, are teaming up with City Harvest and donating over 1,000 soups to support hungry New Yorkers. According to a statement released by the company, “this is the start of an ongoing relationship to support those in need.”
Donated soups will include some of SoupMan’s signature flavors, such as Crab & Corn Chowder, Lobster Bisque, Jambalaya Soup, Lentil Soup, and Chicken Noodle Soup.
If you’re in New York City on December 23 and want to catch a glimpse of the man behind the mustache, you can head over to the Holy Apostle Soup Kitchen at 10:30 A.M., where the Soup Nazi will be on hand to deliver soups and angrily pose for photos.
City Harvest has been helping to feed those in need since 1982. This year, they expect to collect over 55 million pounds of food, which will go to an estimated 1.4 million people.
Jerry Seinfeld is a master comedic craftsman still keeping his standup game in top form.
That’s the takeaway from this weekend’s New York Times magazine profile in which Seinfeld shares his writing process (including his notes) and talks spirituality with the Times’s Jonah Weiner.
Seinfeld describes growing up on Long Island in a “pretty Jewish” family that went to temple and kept kosher. Despite forays into Zen Buddhism, Scientology and transcendental meditation, Seinfeld told the Times he still identifies as Jewish.
“I was very flattered recently to hear about a Nazi rally in Florida where they took DVDs of (my) show, sprayed swastikas on them and threw them through the windows of a synagogue,” he said. “That was nice.”
