Other famous figures who are celebrity New York Mets fans include Chris Rock, Kevin James, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
The next time you're watching a New York Mets game, make sure to keep a close eye on the stands. You never know which of these Mets celebrity fans you might spot sporting their New York Mets gear.
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, comedian Jerry Seinfeld is the epitome of a die-hard New York Mets fan. Whether it's writing the team into his hit television series Seinfeld, having his very own bobblehead night, calling the games in the booth, throwing out the first pitch, or simply sitting in the stands watching games, there is little to nothing that Jerry Seinfeld hasn't done to show his incredible fandom for the Mets.
One of the funniest comedians and humans to ever grace the planet, Robin Williams was a national treasure, but something that is relatively unknown about Williams is his incredible fandom for the Mets. Williams was a self-proclaimed novice in baseball for the majority of his life, but when attending a game for Comics Relief with good friend Billy Crystal, Williams fell in love with the team, and it was a match made in heaven.

New York City's own Jon Stewart was a born, raised, and tormented New York Mets fan. Through thick and thin Steward has supported the team, attending games and throwing out first pitches, but the most memorable moments between Steward and the Mets are undoubtedly the long tirades he would go on about the team on his hit television show The Daily Show. A self-proclaimed “long-suffering Mets fan,” Stewart will ride with the team forever.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York just before the Met's first-ever World Series championship, powerhouse comedian Chris Rock has been a fan of the team since he was just a child. Rock most notably had a very long and very funny monologue about the Mets when he appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and while it's a love/hate relationship, Rock still cheers on the team to this day.
Late-night television host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel is a native son of New York, and he grew up in a family that adored the New York Mets. As he grew older and got jobs in the public eye, Kimmel always made it a point to let his Mets flag fly, as he would often have the team appear on his show. Kimmel has most notably signed on as a producer for a 30 for 30 about the 1986 mets.

A native of New York City, comedian and talk-show host Bill Maher loves the New York Mets harder than almost any other fan. Constantly going on long tirades about the team on his show, Maher loves the Mets so much that he actually bought a minority ownership stake in the team in 2012.
