Jerry Seinfeld on Dave Chappelle ‘SNL’ Monologue, His Pop-Tarts Movie – The Hollywood Reporter

Jerry Seinfeld’s is hard to believe. Comedian in the car receiving coffee This year is 10 years. Street chat – in which Seinfeld and his comedian drive an old car and chat on their way to grab a cup of java – airs July 19, 2012 on Crackle Continue to the green stream meadows at Netflix in 2018.

For more than 11 seasons, Seinfeld has put together all the influential jokes in his business. Senfel Co-founders Larry David, David Letterman, late Don Rickles, Chris Rock, Tina Fey, Jon Stewart, Steve Martin and Tracy Morgan among them. Along the way, he hosted some comedy shows nearby: then President Barack Obama joined him in the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray season 7, then had coffee with Seinfeld in the staff dining room. White House.

To commemorate its tin anniversary, Seinfeld has compiled some of the most memorable changes from the series in Comedian in car gets coffee book (Simon & Schuster). Available on November 22nd and packed with funny jokes and awareness of the spirit of standing up, it is the holiday gift for the funny couple in your life.

Seinfeld, 68, joined Hollywood Reporter For a conversation about what he thinks is funny, what he’s working on (including his Pop-Tart movie for Netflix) and his personal thoughts on the current comedy world debate: Controversy Day 12 November Saturday Night Live The monologue provided by Dave Chappelle (who, yes, appeared on the episode of Coffee reception And features in the book as well).

I really enjoy reading books. I think what I love about it and it’s what I love about the show is that you really Let us get into the whole psychology of comedy. How do you feel about making jokes funny and different from normal people?

Real jokes do not care about anything other than laughter. Everything else in human life feels artificial and meaningless.

There is an interesting change in the book you are talking to Dave Chappelle about how Chris Rock has a real edge and that he speaks in accent. You refer to his distribution using terms such as “command” and “closing argument”. I really like the idea – that comedians have to think regularly and make them stronger.

Oh yes for sure. In fact, the more ideas you have, the more fun it will be. I think when it starts to become a reality or starts to become “this is probably a related thought” the fun will go away.

Do you think it is losing translation with the audience now? Maybe in the rise of social media that somehow in the journey from stage to ordinary speech people forget that these are versions of extreme ideas?

That is clearly an evolution when we speak. I watched the special stand this morning and [there were] Tons of great jokes. But the most important and necessary element right now is that it shows us how much pain you are experiencing. We want to see it. We want to know how damaged you are and how, and whose fault it is. And that has become part of what people want from standing up now.

[Audiences] Seems to love standing up. And I think that’s an accusation of another form of entertainment. Like hey, movies and TV should do most of this work. We just want to tell jokes. But now people are looking for depth from stand-up comedy. I always thought, “Well, the last thing I want to hear is something that really bothers Rodney Dangerfield.” I do not want to know! Just give a joke. Take the pain as a joke.

I’m looking at yours. New York Times An interview video where you explain how you write a Pop-Tart comedy. I really like it because you broke it down in a way I had never seen before. . And you liken making jokes to songwriting – you have to have a certain rhythm or rhythm, and sometimes it Come cut the syllables to get a laugh.

ម – ម

So for comedians is science. It’s math that makes you laugh.

Some parts are mathematical, some parts just – it’s sound. I talked to this comedian the other day, it really is today. He has some stories about caves. And I just thought, “Wow. I mean dune buggy every night. Just a happy sound.”

So sometimes that’s part of the music – the sound is just joking. You always try. I have this long story about personal storage and there is a part of it that I go to “you have to unlock”. I do not say “break it”. I do not say “struggle to get into it”. But the word “falls into the lock.” It’s fun for the ears.

I used to do this a little bit about bathroom stalls, which I would say “windows under the screen”. There is no word for “show”. No phrase, it does not exist. I created it and everyone understood immediately. But that is the music part that is entertaining for your ears. Pure for your ears.

And there are some more funny letters. Like the letter “k” I hear is a more funny letter.

That’s right, because they cut.

I just watched Jon Stewart and Colbert, my favorite comedians, debate Dave Chappelle SNL monologue. And I just want to know where you fell on it. Do you find it funny?

I think this joke is well executed, but I think the topic requires a conversation that I do not think That I want to be in this place.

But it makes you uncomfortable.

It engenders a conversation that hopes for productivity.

And is that the kind of conversation you would have with Dave? Because you seem to have a close relationship with him.

I have no close relationship with him. We are friends and it is not a close relationship.

Back to Pop-Tarts Where are you with Netflix Pop-Tarts? [Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story]?

Netflix is ​​watching it today for the first time after I just finished editing and then we’ll see where it goes next week. I think it should be out early next year.

Really speaking. And are you happy with the first cut? Can you tell us about it? I mean, it’s all fiction, right? It’s not a remake of the real Pop-Tarts.

That’s right. There is nothing wrong. But there are some elements that, in fact, we use to start the story, that the Post came up with the idea and Kellogg heard about it and said, “We have to do the same.” And then I told stories like The right stuff. With NASA versus the Soviet Union.

Pop-Tarts race.

Yes, Pop-Tarts race. (Laugh.)

Well, I’m really looking forward to it. I’m a big fan of Pop-Tarts, so you’re talking to your target audience here. I also want to know something else: You surprised everyone by becoming a model. I want to know what it’s going to be – KITH fashion has spread.

It was my son’s idea. They just asked me to get dressed. I’m wearing a shirt. (Laugh.) I have a friend who is a great photographer and I think, “It will be on the back page of some photographers. Magazine. ” That no one will see it.

Oh so. That did not happen.

It’s a weird thing that happens. It was really fun. It just shows you how little you can predict the world. To be honest, it was shocking that someone saw that. But of course many people have seen it and it’s funny for me. Literally takes an hour the whole thing. “Put on this shirt, I’ll sit here” “Take a picture.” “Give that hat.” “I’ll sit there.” “Take that picture.” We are just cheating.

Did it open up other model opportunities?

Yes. Yes. I will do a lot of modeling.

So back to the book. What are you doing to promote it? Are you signing or presenting?

Yes, I am doing this. This. You have to help me in that.

I will help you!

Thank you, sir. Netflix just asked me if they could have a book party for me for books. So we will do it. And I do not know, everything else seems to be a good thing to do.

And are you going to visit in 2023?

Yes, I started the tour this month. I just put the materials together. But yes, I am performing now.

Wow. I saw you at Pantages and it was funny. I love the pain in the ass a little bit, even to the cinema.

Yes. Yes. And then you have to come back.

Finally, I just want to know who all the stars are? Our generation of comedians.

Our generation. That’s a bit broad. How old do you give me to work?

Well, they should be alive and well over 40 years.

Live and over 40 years old. Who do I love that I watch? There you are, this is a bit ambiguous. I do not know how deep you stand. Have you ever seen Fred Armisen: Stand for the drummer. It is available on Netflix. You need to know how to play the trap drum to get tickets to the event. Because it’s all about drumming, but it really isn’t. It’s just like 15, 20 minutes of drum material. But it was amazing. It’s a great special stand up.

I love a lot of people. I love Ronnie Chiang who does Daily program. I love his standing. I think it’s very good. I love earthquakes. I think he is unbelievable. I like standing really hard. No, I’m not interested in jokes from your magazine. I want to hear about the impossible

So which one do I really love the last one? I love everything Chris Rock does. I mean, like, guys who really go for comedy. Isn’t that right? Not so much “I want you to know who I am”.

You may care less.

It’s not that I do not care. But we need jokes. It’s like Woody Allen’s chicken comedy. Do you remember that? It was like the man went to a psychiatrist. He said, “My brother thinks he is a chicken. I do not know what to do for him. The psychiatrist says, “Why don’t you send him?” “I want to, but we need eggs,” he said. It’s about “we need a joke”.

Interviews were edited for length and clarity.
