David recalled the making of legendary 1992 episode tackling masturbation on Friday night as part of a Seth Meyers-moderated virtual fundraiser for the Democratic Party of Texas with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander. "The Contest" is what put Seinfeld on the map as a watercooler show, said David. "That show changed something about how we were perceived in television land," said David. "It really catapulted us to another place. It moved us to another level, I think. And the show got much more popular after that episode."
