David Letterman Has A Hard Time Taking Jerry Seinfeld’s High Praises | Netflix Is A Joke

January 28, 2020

– What are the kids like? Tell me about the kids. – You know what, I’m sick
of hearing people on TV talk about their goddam kids. It’s enough with the kids. Let’s talk about our lives. Okay, we’re having
fantastic lives, you and I. – See, all I wanna know is about your kids because I don’t know anything
about raising a child. So I look to somebody
who has more than I do, and I think I’ll learn something. What do they do, what do they like to do? Where do you go on vacation? – We go all over the world on vacation, as you might imagine, to
the most fabulous places doing the most wonderful things. What would you do if you were me? (audience laughing) – Wow. – But, the thing that’s great about kids is they don’t care what
you think is great. – [Dave] That’s right, that’s right. – Right, you think, look
at how great this hotel is. They don’t care. Look at this fantastic car
I’ve got, it’s stupid to them. Everything you like, they’ve
gotta take the other side. That’s a great balancing thing of kids. They’re not impressed with
anything you’re impressed with. – No, because when my son
was born, I was expecting me. – Right. – And thank God it’s not. – You were hoping, as
I was, to get a small resemblance of yourself
that sits next to you quietly and watches TV. (audience laughing) – That’s what you thought. – And enjoyed the same things I enjoyed and sounded like me and
looked like me, yeah. – [Jerry] Right, right. – It didn’t work out that way. After high school, did you go to college? – I did, I went to two different schools. I graduated Queens College
in New York, very proudly, only because no one in my
family ever had graduated. I knew I was gonna be a
comedian two years before, but I thought, this would be nice for them that I would graduate. – Yeah, same with me,
exactly the same with me. – [Jerry] Really? That’s interesting. – I was the first person
to graduate in my family from college, and that was the
big motivator to get it done. – You weren’t really
fired from CBS, were you? Is that just your joke? That’s a joke line. – Did it get a laugh? (audience laughing) – It did get a laugh. – Ah, not much of one. – Were you really ready
at that time to go? – I’ll tell you something. I wish now, looking back at my life, I should have left 10 years ago because then I could have
taken some of that energy and focus and applied it to actually doing something good for humans. Do you know what I mean? – No I don’t, because I think
you could not have done more for humans than what you did. (audience applauding and cheering) You think of your career
as a self-aggrandizing, self-satisfying, self, what’s the word? – Enriching. – Self-enriching, thank you, pursuit, and if you’re any good
at it, Mr. Letterman, you’re not that kind of person. If you’re really thinking like that, you’re gonna suck and you
know that that’s true. The people that are good at
it do it because they know it’s making people happy, and
that’s what’s driving them. (audience applauding) And that’s why you were so great. – You’re very generous with your praise, but the same is a description of you. More you than me, for God’s sakes. – Why, why more than me? – Well because, you know, I
was looking at some stuff. Rolling Stone said that
Seinfeld was the greatest situation comedy of all time. – Oh, David. – Of all time. – That’s a stupid statement,
but it’s a nice compliment. So when you first
started doing late night, you were from the very beginning. I was saying this to
somebody the other day and it applies to no one better than you. The secret to television,
and I think there’s some Netflix people here who would– The secret to television is the person who gets the opportunity wants to re-form this type of content to them personally. – Yeah, that’s true. That’s absolutely true. When I started in
television, I used to talk to people on the staff, and it was, oh boy, wait’ll they see this. This is the thing that
television has been waiting for. I can’t wait to get
out there and show them what they’ve been missing all these years. And then you get out
there and you realize, well, no, you’re not the
savior you would like to be. And really, when it gets right down to it, people would pretty much just rather watch what they’ve been watching
anyway, so leave us alone. – Yeah, no, well you
couldn’t be more wrong there. Because you were the
savior, you were the guy who smashed the glass and
said, well, what if we just did this a whole different
way that I think is funny for no particular reason? (upbeat music)

    SOOOO much repsect for these two, but their respective "Awww….shucks….I didn't do anything, I don't know anything (Letterman)" and the "I had the greatest TV show ever do you know who I am? I'm a goddamn billionaire with 975 billion in my NYC bank that's who! (Seinfeld)" have become like Bruce "I'm just a broken everyday man/cowboy/folk singer/farmer billionaire who happens to vacation on David Geffen's yacht trying to fix myself by fixing those around me first" Springsteen – it's now getting a liiiiittttllleeeee tired…..just shut the fuck up and do you jobs and stop trying to TED Talk us all to death with your rightousness …..
