All the Times on ‘Seinfeld’ When Kramer Was a World-Class Athlete

If pratfalls were an Olympic sport, I know who I’d want representing the red, white and blue in Paris next year.

Michael Richards’ portrayal of Cosmo Kramer on the beloved sitcom Seinfeld was one of the most iconic physical performances in television history — and that includes all the sports channels. At a slim 6-foot-3, Richards’ stature and spaghetti limbs made him a mixture between a spastic muppet and a graceful ballerina as he slid in and out of Manhattan apartments to uproarious applause from the in-studio audience. Over the course of Seinfeld’s nine divine seasons, the character of Kramer himself also demonstrated preposterous physical prowess, proving to be worthy of every ounce of animal magnetism he commanded.
