Jerry Seinfeld blames PC culture and the “radical left” for ruining TV comedy

Jerry Seinfeld said in… Interview with the New Yorker As he touts his landmark directorial effort “Unfrosted,” “computer idiocy” and the “radical left” are making TV comedy extinct. Seinfeld is a sitcom icon thanks to his eponymous NBC sitcom that ran from 1989 to 1998, but he says viewers no longer flock to their TVs to get their comedy fix like they did for decades.

“Nothing really affects comedy. People always need it. They need it so bad they don't get it,” Seinfeld said. “It used to be that you would come home at the end of the day, and most people would say, 'Oh,'” Seinfeld said. 'Your Health' is on. Oh, 'MASH' is on. Oh, 'Mary Tyler Moore' is on. 'All in the Family' is on.' I just predicted: “There's going to be some funny stuff we can watch on TV tonight.” Well, guess what – where is it? And that's a result of the far left and PC crap, and people worrying too much about offending others.

Seinfeld noted that comedy fans “will now watch comics because we're not censored by anyone. The audience is watching us. We know when we're off track. We know instantly and adapt to it immediately. But when you write a script and it goes into four or five hands… And different committees and groups – “This is our take on this joke.” Well, this is the end of your comedy.

“We did an episode of [‘Seinfeld’] In the 1990s, Kramer decided to start a business of having homeless people pull rickshaws because, he says, “they're out there anyway.” “Do you think I could get this episode on the air today?… We were writing a different joke with Kramer and the rickshaw today. We're not going to do that joke. We've come up with another one. They're moving the gates like in a slalom. Culture – The gates are moving Your job is to be agile and smart enough, where they put the gates, I will make the gate.

Seinfeld went on to assert that it is the “showrunners” who are “really free” to push the boundaries when it comes to comedy nowadays, which also suggests that television networks are no longer interested in doing anything that would ruffle feathers and offend the audience. Computer crowd.

With his film “Unfrosted” dropping on Netflix in May, Seinfeld has been making the press rounds for a few weeks and giving his candid thoughts on the state of Hollywood. “The film industry is over,” he declared in a recent interview GQ Magazine.

“Film does not occupy the top of the social and cultural hierarchy that it has occupied for most of our lives,” he said. “When a movie came out, if it was good, we all went to see it. We all discussed it. We quoted lines and scenes we liked. Now we're walking through a hose, just trying to see.”

So, what, if anything, replaced the film? “Depression? Malaise? I would say confusion. Confusion has replaced the movie business,” Seinfeld replied. “Everyone I know in show business, every day, wonders: What's going on? How do you do this? What are we supposed to do now?

“Unfrosted” is streaming on Netflix starting May 3. Go to The New Yorker website to read the latest interview with Seinfeld In its entirety.
