Seinfeld does standup on 'Leno'

Posted on

If we can’t have real, live episodes of Modern Seinfeld, at least we’ve got the next best thing: Actual standup from the man himself. Seinfeld stopped by The Tonight Show last night, as he is wont to do, and performed a few minutes of a new routine about how “food is over.” It’s not his best material, but there are a few solid laughs about Pop-Tarts and how gross breakfast was in the ’60s — and best of all, a handful of lines sound like they came straight from Fake Jerry’s mouth. (“Why does cake have frosting? You’re already cake! Take it easy!”)


Suddenly find yourself craving more Seinfeldy goodness? Check out the comedian’s sharp web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” — a second season is coming sometime this year.
