So they were actually talking about it this morning on the Stern show (coincidentally with Rev Bob Levy, who has apparently worked with him), and I am inclined to agree with their assessment. Richards isn't really a stand-up comic. He's an actor. He did some stand-up years ago, probably before he was even on Fridays and well before he was on Seinfeld, but he really hit it big when he became Kramer. Now that the show is over, he sort of has this instant cred as a headliner at clubs, but he never really developed an act to go with it. So he shows up, and he gets a two minute pop on name recognition alone, but once that's worn off he doesn't really have any material to keep them hooked so they turn on him. As you know, the bigger a face you are, the bigger a heel you are after the turn. So they end up really hating him, and he's not really prepared for it, and eventually, after 8 years (well, 7 since he had a sitcom for a minute after Seinfeld) its just gotten to him and he's starting to crack.
