The array of snacks Jerry Seinfeld reportedly requires backstage is idiosyncratic enough to inspire a "Seinfeld" episode.

The superstar comedian is scheduled to do eight live shows in Australia this month, but only if he gets certain foods, according to The Daily Telegraph of Sydney.The paper quotes an unnamed promoter as saying Seinfeld's "essential backstage items" include: 18 small bottles of water on ice (any brand except Evian), one bag of Rold Gold pretzels, one vegetable tray for four people, one small jar of mayonnaise, and a small amount of pasta salad - hold the mayo.

"By superstar standards, it's not that demanding a list," the promoter said.
