Jerry Seinfeld: Politically correct students 'don't know what they're talking about'

Jerry Seinfeld has ruled out playing university audiences because they are too politically correct – and he counts the entire younger generation in that.

While Seinfeld was promoting his internet show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee on a sports radio show, DJ Colin Cowherd said that Chris Rock and other comics steered clear of student audiences because of political correctness.

Seinfeld said, "I hear that all the time. I don't play colleges but I hear a lot of people telling me they're so PC."

When asked if political correctness hurt comedy, Seinfeld replied, "Yes it does."  He added that comedians like Louis CK, whose Saturday Night Live monologue about paedophilia and racism caused something of a stir last month, avoided problems because he "doesn't care".

“Everybody has their hot zone. Their heat map. Those are the jokes you do. For me, I talk about the subjects I talk about because for some reason, I can make them funny.”

Seinfeld described his 14-year-old daughter saying that her mother's suggestion she might one day spend time with boys on weekends was "sexist".

“They just want to use these words," he said. "‘That’s racist. That’s sexist. That’s prejudice.’ They don’t know what the [bleep] they’re talking about.”

Jerry hit the nail on the head, when there is something that you do not like label it racist, sexist, etc. That way you do not have to show how pathetic your objection is.
