Jerry Seinfeld insisted yesterday he ought to be the master of his own comic domain.
Seinfeld didn't slander the woman who accused his wife of ripping off her cookbook, he said in legal papers filed yesterday in Manhattan federal court.
He was just mining the legal system for laughs - and supporting the right of standup comedians to do the same, he said.
Seinfeld cited several episodes of the "show about nothing" where he mocked frivolous lawsuits - including an episode where Kramer wins free coffee for life in a court settlement because he got burned on gourmet roast.
