Jerry Seinfeld drops in on The Late Show to try out that whole telling jokes with a microphone thing.
I will always be grateful for Jerry Seinfeld’s contributions to the greatest sitcom of all-time (and quite frankly one of the few traditional laugh track/live studio audience sitcoms that I can actually stomach), but HOLY HELL IS THIS MOTHERFUCKER’S STAND-UP AS STALE AS EVER.
Good gawd, y’all.
Dude has never ever been funny to me
“You could take the plug, and shove it in the hole.” Only joke that gave me a chuckle.
He should have ended the doughnut hole bit with “And then you’d have a WHOLE DONUT “
wasnt feelin it till the food jokes, flad hes back
never got seinfelds stand-up appeal but i can respect that people like it, hes got great delivery
good set Jerry… lol
I see from the comments that others think this guy is unfunny, too. Whew! From the hype he’s always got you would have thought he was the messiah. His routine seems like a parody of what a comedian who had no balls would say in his act. TV dinners? Fat people in America? Whoa, daddy! Louis CK and Doug Stanhope, step aside!! Here’s the real heavyweight of comedy!
i feel like this comedy set was made in 1993
The buffet bit is gold.
Those people are literally laughing after every half-sentence.
*lugubrious* *(adjective)* overly sad, mournful. *Watching Jerry Seinfeld do a set on how pathetic it is to eat Swanson Hungry Man Dinners made Fidorover lugubrious, as he just happened to be finishing his Swanson Hungry Man Salisbury Steak Dinner at **3:30** a.m. while watching Jerry’s aforementioned set on YouTube.*
I want to laugh because the way he delivers the jokes is great but the jokes themselves are…lacking. He’s one step away from being a parody of himself that everybody is always doing impressions of. You know the ones, the airplane food jokes and all that stuff
Yeah this isn’t funny at all.
OMG. Seinfeld still not funny after all those years..
so many salty know it all youtube standup comic critics dishing out their unique opinions as if he isnt making people laugh.
wiping tears onto a tissue has more purpose than saying “i didnt laugh”..
Who did this guy voice in an animation? Was it the bee from Bee Movie?
I get that he revolutionized comedy with the show, but comedy has gone a long way since then and has changed exponentially. This set does not feel like it belongs in the world of comedy in today’s standards. But idk
You know what they say: end on a high…
I never really thought Seinfeld was funny.
Just like I never thought that Cosby was funny.
Shall a pattern emerge? WE’LL FIND OUT!
At least he’s a free speech advocate.
I know about nothing that’s funnier than this.
Come on Jerry. You can do better than this…
hahah “his best tight five”… I bet Seinfeld wants to punch somebody over that title.
I dont find this funny
this was cringe worthy he has great premises and delivery but the jokes weren’t good in my opinion
I watch the set I thought it was rather funny I’ve been watching comics and comedy skits for about 60 years now I think have a pretty good handle on what is a good or bad Comedy would you believe cut it is in the covers end of entertainment that the toughest end of its tempt me I mean other than below is the dance the opera in all other rigours is a general toughness is show business I believe there is nothing more difficult to stand up to see more on it rather than the comment is it good or bad it’s whether he or she has a crack you defect fact that he appeared appeared to have a cold but perhaps losing his voice as many entertainers singers, the people and voice impersonators do the only possible Chris is that this as many entertainers singers comedy people and voice impersonators do the only possible criticism that could be launched successfully I believe is that he may possibly waited three throat throat or cold to subside but if you’re lucky enough to be fully booked you can’t always do that for you David Horin many thanks speaking into a microphone press on to you I hope the above is made relative sense again David Horin many thanks
What a show
I’m over here trying to figure out why the audience was laughing…was there someone in front of the camera making funny faces or something?
He used to be so funny.
jim gaffigan did this premise 10 yrs ago…his line was “saw ur fat ass on tv last nite”
The show is fantastic, and I think he does better acting out funny situations on TV than he does explaining them on stage
:/ This is disastrously unfunny.
I was watching this on the TV and I randomly clicked on this video. I randomly skipped to the exact place that it was on TV and it was like surround sound. Is it This normal?
Love the Seinfeld show and his Online “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” and i enjoy his Standup.
never ever made me laugh even for a family friendly mainstream comic he sucks ass
TV dinner jokes? Ooh, take that Swanson’s.
Jerry looked at these mean comments, then took a relaxing swim in his money bin.
Jerry “Game face” Seinfeld
This is the worst shit …ever How is he rich again?
“My first guest tonight created Seinfeld…” I thought Larry David was coming on.
The people in the comment section pretending this isn’t good will also never acknowledge how horrendous Colbert is on the late show. Do you guys really like when he sings songs? How many Trump jokes do you possibly need?
The comments are always so all over the place (“this is great”, “this sucks”, “so funny”, “not funny at all”, and on and on, etc) for this show. No consensus at all, seemingly. I’m becoming numb to it all, like it doesn’t really matter either way. Maybe it doesn’t…
i kinda died when he got to donut holes, so fucking true XD
fat people amirite? *laugh track*
This was almost a parody of a Seinfeld routine.
What an awful comedian.
Microphone wasn’t plugged in and was essentially a prop. He moved it further from his mouth without any diminishing of the sound quality. You can see the real mic on his lapel. That really bugged me for some reason.
He’s a bloody legend. Having trouble with his signature high pitch though.
Wow. That set was straight out of the late ’90s which should have been the last time anyone thought he was funny.
Donut holes? Really Seinfeld? Donut holes. Ok.
Man, I typically find his comedy funny but this was really not very good.
These jokes are ripped from Jim gaffigan.
Who eats Hungry Man? TV dinners? We’re in 2016 Seinfeld. Not the 60’s.
thank you Jerry, for showing the world that not all jews are funny.
It’s the delivery folks.. Imagine Louis C.K doing this bit, he will be saying how he blunders into a buffet, just mix matching, the most random shit, while he would never do that at home. who the fuck makes waffle’s with sushi, and caramelized chicken legs for dinner at night, but in a buffet.. and we’d all die of laughing cause he is talking about himself but we can relate going..oh yeah.. i do that too.
In Jerry’s delivery however, he just observes, and basically asks” why do you guys do this?” which makes us uncomfortable I think, and fewer people today can laugh by going “yeah.. why do we do this?”
Just my two cents..
I didn’t know everyone on YouTube was some exceptional comedic genius! I’m sure Seinfeld would enjoy all your notes on how unfunny his actual comedy is. It’s so sad to see an entire pool of sour grapes on here. But amusing at the same time.
Best joke: “The Swanson Hungry Man TV Dinner. A little taste of prison right there in your own home.”
Sounded like a laugh track :/
Thank god for Louis CK.
Doughnut Ho… Yes!!! I will have it!!!
WORDS have MEANINGS
arent don-nut holes just timbits O.o
These comments are justifiably brutal. His smugness has destroyed his edge.
Not a fan, but he does occasionally make a brilliant observation.
Jerry2016 is really riding the coattails of Jerry1997. I clicked on this hoping for comedy, but I got….nothing.
Started strong, but then retread Gaffigan and went downhill afterwards.
I didn’t have a problem with the performance it self, but rather the audience that killed it. Jerry’s stuff has always been the type of thing to chuckle about in a light conversation, it’s the forced laughter from the audience for the sake of acknowledging a legendary guy that really ruined this.
Seinfeld is a good example of a comedian who gets laughs because of his stature. His brand of comedy isn’t cutting edge anymore, he isn’t fresh and exciting anymore. All of this wouldn’t matter if his jokes were funny, but they really aren’t. I see him getting some chuckles from 50/60 year olds but that’s about it. I’m sorry Jerry, but in the age of Louis CK and Bill Burr you’re just not relevant anymore.
Jerry Seinfeld is terrible!
Much better than expected. Hilarious even. I hate the haters.
Negativity ⬆ ⬇
Seinfeld is a relic. His type of comedy does not age well.
I don’t think he’s unfunny, but I do think this video wasn’t funny.
The Laugh Sign possibly malfunctioned. They laughed even when he moved his hand. It’s like the laugh track on Big Bang Theory. Must be a New York Thing (I know BBT is a Cali thing)… #SNLandSeinfeldAreNotSoFunny #LarryDavidisFunny #SeiNeLd
hilarious…. but, if this video doesn’t load, see Jim gaffigan’s standup, its basically the same thing.
“Leavenworth Chicken or Alcatraz Meatballs”
Had to pause at that moment to laugh my ass off.
good bit on the buffet
Boy he’s on autopilot quite a bit here
Jesus no wonder he hates college kids, ya gotta blame someone huh Jerry.
Imagine if someone started doing these jokes at a party thinking he is oh so funny. “Holes are the absence of whatever is surrounding it!!” The cringeness.
He had a clip on microphone, so I guess the microphone was just for show, sneaky sneaky
Most overrated comic in the world.
this is some gold material
I seem to be in the minority, but I thought he killed.
yep, his comedy did not hold into the 21st century
Never thought he was funny… Still don’t.
This reminds me of those opening stand up bits in Seinfeld. I thought that’s what they were paying homage to since the audience was laughing every sentence break lol
I watched this last night…..JERRY…you still got….you are very funny……….loved it
That’s Jim Gaffigan’s joke about fat people recognizing themselves on the news.
I like his standup. The people in the comments need to stop complaining.
The buffet joke was kind of funny I guess
Correct title should be “Proof That Larry David Was The Comedic Genius Behind Seinfeld”
This is his best five? Don’t you have some money to count?
