The good folks at National Lampoon have unearthed a lost episode of Seinfeld. Featuring the whacky antics of Michael Richards (Kramer), the episode is a take-off-collage thing, inspired by Richards’ recent racist rantings during a gig at a comedy club.
In other Michael Richards news, none other than Mel Gibson himself has expressed sympathy for Richards’ current predicament:
“I feel really badly for the guy. He was obviously in a state of stress,” Gibson said in an interview in Entertainment Weekly’s Dec. 8 issue. “You don’t need to be inebriated to be bent out of shape.”
Richards, who has been described as totally whacked in real life, apologized for his unhinged behavior at a recent appearance on the David Letterman show. Gibson, as you may recall, also apologized after making anti-Semitic comments to a police officer in Malibu, California, during his July 28 arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.
