Jerry Seinfeld jokes that talking is obsolete

Jerry Seinfeld jokes that talking is obsolete

Jerry Seinfeld has joked that talking has become obsolete these days….

In a recent set of material he performed at a David Lynch Foundation benefit at Carnegie Hall, the veteran comedian joked about modern things like smartphones, texting and sending emails.

Page Six has the hilarity:

“Talking is over, it’s obsolete,” Seinfeld said at the Wednesday gala for movie director Lynch’s Transcendental Meditation organization. “I feel like a blacksmith up here sometimes. If you want, I can text you this whole [routine] and we can get the hell out of here.”

He added in the act: “It used to be you just lived. Now you have your life and your phone’s battery life . . . If my phone goes totally dead, I plug it in and sit next to it and wait for it to get better. Put a little washcloth over its head. ‘Don’t make any alerts or sounds . . . you just rest.’”

He does have a point, though. Since smartphones have become so much of a part of our everyday lives, it has become harder and harder to detach ourselves from the tech.

I’m starting to see why Kate Winslet bans her kids from getting so addicted to their gadgets.

All Your Seinfeld Dreams Are Coming True

'Top Five' New York Premiere

This one’s for you, Seinfeld fans…and it’s not a whole lot of NOTHING.

Today, Hulu signed a deal to stream all nine seasons of Seinfeld online, which means that for the first time, all of Seinfeld will be at your fingertips! The sitcom, starring Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, George Alexander, and Michael Richards, ran from 1989 to 1998 and still consistently airs reruns on TV, but can now be caught in its entirety on ye old Hulu.

Deadline reports that Hulu paid around $700,000 per episode, totaling around $130 million. To put that into perspective, it’s almost double what Netflix paid to stream Friends (don’t cry, Chandler).

Hulu also snagged an output deal with AMC for The Walking Dead spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead, which premieres this summer.  But still…SEINFELD!

Are you excited or WHAT?

Jerry Seinfeld Thinks He’s On The Autism Spectrum

Jerry Seinfeld Thinks He's On The Autism Spectrum

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld revealed to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams in a new interview that, in some small way, he feels he is on the autism spectrum.

The 60-year-old comic, who, despite his fame and fortune, continues to do stand-up at New York comedy clubs, explained to Williams that he’s still finding out exactly who he is as a person.
And as he’s learned more about autism spectrum disorder in recent years, Seinfeld explains he’s become more convinced he can see himself in the description.

“I think, on a very drawn-out scale, I think I’m on the spectrum,” the sitcom creator revealed.
“What are the markers?” an intrigued Williams asked. “You know, never paying attention to the right things,” said Seinfeld. “Basic social engagement is really a struggle. I’m very literal. When people talk to me and they use expressions, sometimes I don’t know what they’re saying.”

But while the revelation about his social struggles may be surprising, Seinfeld is clear that this isn’t something he considers a disability. “I don’t see it as dysfunctional,” he added. “I just think of it as an alternate mindset.”

I wouldn’t doubt that he is on the high functioning end of the spectrum and still has trouble in certain social situations. He’s 60-years-old and he knows himself better than any of us do. Perhaps he just doesn’t want to go to a doctor for a diagnosis?

Jerry Seinfeld’s wife Jessica shares a anniversary picture showing off her cropped hair!


Little known fact about me. I have always been curiously fascinated by Jessica Seinfeld. For YEARS. I don’t know what it is. She’s beautiful, and seems totally sweet, and is married to one of my favorite comedians, Jerry Seinfeld. I think the reason why she fascinates me is because you NEVER hear about her. She keeps her life on the DL, and I appreciate that. She doesn’t seem fame-hungry, and looks like she really genuinely loves her husband and family.

The 42-year-old mother of three posted the picture above on Instagram, saying “Merry Christmas, from these two Jews. Married 14 years ago today.”

In the picture, Jessica showed off her newly-cut hair while looking lovingly at her husband, 59. How on earth is Jerry Seinfeld 59 already!?

The happy couple spent their Christmas at the Juan Mountains in Colorado. They were with their three children, Sascha, 13, Julian, 10, and Shepherd, aged eight.

Cute couple!
