    Yes. Most episodes were written by more than one writer, usually in teams of two. Writers submitted ideas for the show, and if Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld thought an idea had potential, it was expanded into a show. Writers over the course of the series included Carol Leifer, Tom Gammill, Max Pross, Larry David, Peter Mehlman, Alec Berg, Jeff Schafer, Spike Feresten, Andy Robin, Gregg Kevett, David Mandell, Elaine Pope, Larry Charles and Greg Daniels. Some of the writers wrote or co-wrote dozens of episodes, while some writers were only involved in a few episodes.

    Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David were the main writers. But different episodes were written by others.

    It's kinda true... Check this link out. It's about Larry David. He was the guy who made the show with Seinfeld... We all know he was / is a stand up comedian. If you count him as a writer (the credits of the show do) then yes... it was written by a bunch of writers... really well paid ones!!

    Yes, several. Larry David & Seinfeld created the sitcom and wrote some of the episodes. Jerry Seinfeld writes most of his own standup himself.
