Jerry Seinfeld has opened up his archives, making his standup clips available on JerrySeinfeld.com.
It will house hundreds of clips that include the 57-year-old’s first network appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ in 1981 up to the present day, reports PopEater. The site was inspired by his thirteen year old daughter who listens to comedy albums on her iPod.
Another interesting tidbit, Jerry hates watching himself on re-runs of “Seinfeld.”
“I think because as much as I enjoy the humor of it, it kind of reminds me of how hard it was to do,” he tells PopEater. “I can’t seem to get that part out of my head and just enjoy the show but I’m working on it because I would like to watch them more. When I watch them, I see my face and I see how I was struggling.”
According to Page Six, Seinfeld was scheduled to attend a Sept. 13 event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Eric Trump Foundation. However Seinfeld has pulled out over remarks Donald made regarding President Obama.
“I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity,” Trump wrote to Seinfeld, “because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader.”
“We don’t care that you broke your commitment,” he continued, “even though the children of St. Jude are very disappointed, and despite the fact that your manager clearly stated you are ‘truly a man of his word.’”
Adding insult to injury, Trump took a shot at Seinfeld’s NBC show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ which Trump appeared on last year.
“What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show, ‘The Marriage Ref,’ even though I thought it was absolutely terrible,” Trump wrote. “Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.”
So this feud does have some merit, as it seems to be politically based. However leave it to Donald Trump to make it a childish pissing match. We side with Seinfeld.
Jerry Seinfeld’s driver, a retired police officer, was caught using a Bronx police placard he should have turned in two years ago upon his retirement, reports E! News. He reportedly placed it in his window when escorting the star into the studio for a taping of reality show The Marriage Ref, which Seinfeld produces.
Elizabeth Clark Zoia, a representative for Seinfeld, said he takes responsibility for the incident and apologizes, even though he was not aware the pass was being used.
The first guest on Jay Leno’s new primetime show will be Jerry Seinfeld, reports Perez Hilton. Seinfeld will likely be promoting his new NBC reality series The Marriage Ref.
The Jay Leno Showwill debut September 14 on NBC. It has previously been reported that Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West will be the musical guests for that first episode.
Leno makes the switch to primetime after Conan O’Brien took over for him in June as host of The Tonight Show.
A heated cook book debate just got a lot more unappetizing, as Jerry Seinfeld and his wife were sued yesterday.
Missy Chase Lapine has accused Jerry Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica, of “brazenly” plagiarizing from her recipe book, “The Sneaky Chef.” Mrs. Seinfeld’s book, entitled “Deceptively Delicious,” was released six months after Lapine’s. Both are collections of recipes that hide healthy ingredients in meals for children.
Mr. Seinfeld was included in the lawsuit for defamation of character. When reports first surfaced of the commonalities of the two books, Mr. Seinfeld made comments about Lapine being a “wacko” while on the David Letterman show. Seinfeld called Lapine “angry” and “hysterical,” compared her to Letterman’s past stalkers, and noted she is a “three-name woman… if you read history, many of the three-name people do become assassins.”
Lapine’s 19-page filing seeks unspecified damages.
