Does Jerry Seinfeld care that some people are pissed at him for tweeting "New! Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Lewis Black. Black’s life matters"?

He's getting pushback like: "Who's writing your tweets now? The Breitbart humor section staff?" And: "What the f— Jerry."

Jerry is known to hate political correctness and to avoid doing college campuses these days. Who knows? Maybe he wanted to draw fire and get some edgy viral promotion for the new episode. It worked on me! I went right over and watched: here. We laughed a lot. Jerry makes it very clear that he works for the laughs and only for laughs. Black talks about starting out as a playwright and doing the Yale drama program, where theater was all about importance. Jerry found that quite absurd.

That IS a pretty good title for an episode.

I'm sure there are some people for whom Lewis Black's life matters. His comedy doesn't matter much to me.

If one is a comedian, surely there must come a day & a time when one looks the New Puritanism straight in the face & say "Oh, fuck 'em if they can't take a joke!".

Leftists drain he fun out of everything and the truth out of everything.

Yes - everything.

It was pretty funny, the episode where he and Pres. Obama had to drive around in circles on the White House driveway because he (the pres) wasn't allowed off the grounds.

Leftists' sense of humor consists almost exclusively of cynical sarcasm about who they view as their political opposition, and they NEVER find anything even remotely funny about themselves, no matter how zany.

You remember when Jerry was accused of being an anti-dentite? It was when dentist Walter White (Tim Whatley) suddenly declared he was Jewish and started telling bad Jewish jokes.

Jerry then said he was offended not as a Jew, but as a comedian and he suspects that Walt converted only for the jokes.

The thing about these progressive types is not that they are so offensive, but that they are so tedious and boring with their perpetual outrage.

Keep it up Lefties, and not only will we get 60 seats in the Senate in 2018, we'll make gains in the House and the statehouses also.......

Harvard disease: the state where nothing you want to do is quite wonderful enough to be worthy of your own wonderful self, so you don't do anything.

I don't think the joke is offensive, and I don't think their cause is particularly sacrosanct. BLM is suffering from Prophet envy. No sane comedian would ever make a joke about Mohammed. This is the status that BLM aspires to. They may succeed.

Let Seinfeld do his black humor jokes. Lets not be too white and offended all the time.

Bay Area Guy said...

The Left has a series of "humor free" zones that you gotta be mindful of - or you might get fired or ostracized.

Are the BLMers confusing Jerry with Kramer?

Jerry has about 300 million in FU money and really does not have to give a shid.

I am getting so sick, of people turning EVERYTHING into a RACIST meme...WTH...It was a funny pun...Lewis's last name is Black...mine is Brown...I am not a Racist, and I am white...Grow up.. THIS is why Donald Trump was elected....

In one of the recent episodes he talked about having to explain to his wife that none of his jokes meant anything (I think she was upset by him using her in a joke) and that he would just say anything as long as it got a laugh. I think he or his guest said "the words don't matter at all, it is just a series of sounds to produce a laugh."
Seems apropos.

I find Lewis Black grating, but enjoy Jerry's show.

And in Hollywood, too! We will control the culture.... by making a "cultural congress" if need be! Yes, that's the ticket! Stop keeping anti-humanitarians out of the humanities! We will make cultural institutions beholden to political rules and then gain control of them that way!

Get a fucking grip. Stop obsessing about power and politics and the hatred you have for the American people to advance it.
