Everybody Hates Jerry Seinfeld

Howard Stern has officially responded to Jerry Seinfeld saying that he isn’t very funny. Last week, Seinfeld, 70, claimed that Stern, 70, is lacking “comedy chops” on the “Fly on the Wall” podcast. After Seinfeld’s comments went viral, he issued an apology to the famous radio host.

Howard Stern is a piece of shit, but he's not wrong about this. Jerry is a humorless asshole these days, smug and judgy.

I saw him at Mohegan Sun in CT years ago. He wasn't funny. Seinfeld told one joke that was good but I already knew the punchline.

I like Howard and Jerry.

I would have rimmed Jerry deep when he was younger and he is ageing quit well.

I think Jerry was in the right place at the right time and he got paid well for it. Good for him!

R13- At least Howard Stern was funny when I would listen to his show back in the 1990's. Jerry Seinfeld was NEVER funny and I suspect the writing on Seinfeld was virtually all Larry David. I was once watching a video of J.S. doing his stand up act. He wasn't funny at all and none of the act reflected any of the writing on the Seinfeld show.

R14- Back in ca 1995 when I was going to bars heavily I remember a guy I would see at The Works on the Upper West Side. I never knew his name but I called him Intense Jerold guy because he looked quite a bit like Jerry Seinfeld and he cruised me too.

I mean, Seinfeld isn’t funny. He never has been. The driving force behind his show was Larry David and a truly talented cast. He was by far the weakest link. A complete siphon. There’s a reason he hasn’t had a career since his show ended and why Julia has.

I agree with r15, I thought I was the only one that hated the show Seinfeld. I wouldn't even tell my friends because they thought something was wrong with me. Howard Stern isn't much better with his 12 year old incel titty comedy. However, when Howard Stern isn't "on" he's far more intelligent and introspective than Seinfeld ever could be

Did any of you actually click the link? There’s nothing in here about Howard Stern hating Jerry Seinfeld. If anything it’s the opposite. I don’t know where OP got his thread title from.

[QUOTE]Stern broke his silence on Seinfeld’s remarks and subsequent apology on “The Howard Stern Show” Monday.

[QUOTE]”Jerry had said that basically I’m an interviewer and that I’m not a comedian, and that now comedians have podcasts and comedians are, you know, funnier or something than me,” Stern said. “I read it, and I went, ‘Oh, that’s weird,’ because Jerry is a personal friend of ours. Especially his wife, Jessica [Seinfeld], is really good friends with Beth [Stern].”

[QUOTE]Stern confirmed that Seinfeld called him “immediately” to apologize for his comments — and Stern was happy to forgive his friend.

[QUOTE]“I said ‘Jerry, you don’t even have to — please. This is embarrassing. I’m the king of going on the air and having millions of regrets afterward. Apology accepted, I don’t care. And you know what? If I’m not a comedian, I’m an interviewer. I don’t know what I am. I always considered myself a bit of a comedian, but whatever it is, don’t worry about it,’ ” Stern explained, adding that Seinfeld “apologized for a really long time, and he said it really came out wrong.”

Agree with r26 and r27. Jerry was what Fellini called the white clown. George and Elaine were my favorites.

My mother loved Kramer but her generation was physical comedy, like I Love Lucy.

And without Larry David it would have never happened.

I still watch it if I'm up past 1am, and laugh at George. The best episodes were about him.

The sitcom had great writers, like Larry David, Larry Charles, and Carol Liefer. His stand up was always lame. The same can be said for Roseanne Barr--funny sitcom because of the writing. She's not funny on her own.

by Anonymousreply 34May 14, 2024 8:23 PM

R17 Are you kidding? Stern can't laugh at himself at all. He can't stand anyone talking about him, he fucking couldn't even tell everyone his income when he wanted to run for governor. I used to love him but since he married the horse faced gold digger, he's even more paranoid and arrogant than before. Jerry is on a beloved show that I watch all the time. And Larry is the fucking man. I almost cried when I watched the last season of Curb. I'm going with Jerry on this.

Agreed, R9.

I recall my HS Honors English teacher and college English Lit professor observing how very few poets keep up the same level of creativity, though not necessarily level of output, as they age. Brilliant chemists, mathematicians, lawyers, physicists, etc., over a career mostly retain the skills that brought them acclaim; but not so with poets.

I wonder if the same thing obtains with comedians, as well, even accounting for societal shifts/changes in taste? As they age so many comics become so bitter, they lose whatever it was that made them great. Bill Cosby, Seinfeld, even George Carlin (imo), and dozens more.

by Anonymousreply 36May 14, 2024 8:33 PM

When Larry David was producing the show, Seinfeld was biting and satiric. When he left and Seinfeld became the executive producer, the show jumped the shark and became silly and unfocused. David kept the George character under control, because he was that guy. After he left, George became Jerry Stiller Jr, all bluster and idiocy. Stern? Never funny. Never will be. Only now he’s an ass-kisser.

R35, yeah, I've heard that Stern has become something of a sellout, which is what made me not inclined to listen to him anymore. But at least at one point he had a great, self-deprecating humor about himself and his shortcomings. Can't say the same about Seinfeld.

I know Jerry had some success as a standup before his eponymous sitcom, but I get the impression that, without Larry David (and Julia Louis Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards, for that matter,) he would have eventually faded into obscurity. One of those "whatever happened to...?" comedians that your aunt used to really like in the 80s.

Does everyone remember how Jerry and his wife got together? She got married to a guy from the Neiderlander family, went on her honeymoon, came back and met Jerry in the gym. Goodbye Neiderlander. She kicked his ass right to the curb and shacked up with Seinfeld less than a month after her marriage.

Holy mother of God, the irony. If people like you gave a single fuck about actual civilian casualties you would have expressed disgust on October 7th when Hamas killed over 1200 people in an unprovoked attack. I am willing to put money down I could educate your ignorant ass about the history of that region going back centuries. You are a typical arrogant fuck who thinks they have the knowledge to educate anyone about something they didn’t give a fuck about prior to October 2023.

Larry David is a comedic genius and Jerry Seinfeld doesn't even attempt to act, those are both givens. Having a better actor play Jerry would have helped.

But they did create and write the show together, so it's not just a case of "Larry was funny and Jerry was not". Seinfeld had more career success before the show than David did, and it seems quite likely, given David's own self-portraits, that Seinfeld's influence was crucial in getting the thing up and focussed and selling it successfully. The fact that David could get 12 more seasons out of the George character in CURB shows how endlessly inventive he is, but it doesn't prove that Seinfeld was responsible for none of the comedy in his eponymous show, nor that David could have done it by himself.
