It's also more likely that Larry is the Benny fan because, being some years older than Jerry, he was closer to seeing Benny perform "in his prime." And yes, there are several references to Abbott & Costello in Seinfeld (at one point a character bears the name of Sid Fields, clearly a nod to A&C's TV show), so we can safely assume that Benny must've been of some influence, as well.
