Questions for Jerry Seinfeld

By Debbie Schlussel
Interviewing Jerry Seinfeld, this afternoon.
It’s supposed to be about his new animated movie, “Bee Movie.” But they haven’t restricted what I can ask. Post your questions for him in the comments section and will try to get to to some of them.

I really can’t imagine anything I would want to ask him. I thought his show was fairly uninteresting, and I’m glad it is gone. I suppose you could ask if he will promise to stay away, please?

I never watched “Seinfeld”. I did not find it funny. The only thing I can imagine asking Jerry is this: How did it feel to steal Jessica away from her fiance? Also, How big is your carbon footprint?

I thought his show was one of the most innovative and top sit-coms in television history. The best thing – the show never had a serious moment. I’d be curious to know more about his faith, if any. Is Scientology part of the mix these days. Thanks.

You guys are way off. Seinfeld was a funny show. In my opinion, one of the best ever.
It is hard to think of serious questions to ask Jerry, since he is a comedian. I personally could do without another celebrity trying to touch on a serious subject for which they have absolutely no qualifications on.
But I’ll try. First, a few questions that he is qualified to answer.
1. On the show he dated a girl whose named rhymed with a female body part, but they didn’t say what he name was (as far as I can remember). What was her name, and what body part was it?
2. Why did they end the show in such a lame way (everyone in jail)?
3. Is he thinking about doing another series on T.V.?
4. He is appearing on the premiere of Thirty Rock. What does he think of the terrible phone message Alex Baldwin left on his daughter’s answering machine?
Serious questions:
1. What does he think of the leftists who dominate Hollywood?
2. Does he support Israel? What does he think about Ahmadinejad’s threats to wipe Israel off the map?
3. What does he think of the 2008 Presidential candidates?

I hated the Seinfeld sitcom and thought it was exactly as advertised–a show about nothing.
1. Why a movie about bees?
2. Why are so many Hollywood actors liberal when they’ve made untold millions off of capitalism?
3. How can we take these types seriously about environmentlism when many fly in private jets, have lots of cars and huge carbon footprints?

1. Why does the bee have to be named “Barry”??
2. If he is an “A-list” star, why is he making a “B movie”? Does the movie have good “buzz”? How many bad puns are in this movie, anyway? I’m a consultant to the Oxford English Dictionary–does he know the origin of “the birds and the bees”?
3. Has he ever shared a sandwich with Rosie O’Donnell? What’s that like?
4. Has Jerry heard any good Mahmoud Ahmadinejad jokes lately?
5. Do you think words like “nigger,” “bitch,” and “ho” should be banned (as suggested by the New York City Council)? Or does it depend on the context that a comedian uses the terms?

I would like to know if he is aware that he is portraying the Jew male as weak and sissified just as Woody Allen did?

Robert S. Trojan on October 1, 2007 at 2:27 pm

Debbie,
Ditto the questions of Bomb Bomb Iran!!
2. Why are so many Hollywood actors liberal when they’ve made untold millions off of capitalism?
3. How can we take these types seriously about environmentalism when many fly in private jets, have lots of cars and huge carbon footprints?
My questions:
1. Hollywood hates tax cuts for the rich, so would he be willing to pay a voluntary tax on his wealth–not income to solve Global Warming? It could be called a Global Warming “Belief Tax?”
2. To offset the carbon footprint of the mansions in Hollywood and the numerous homes owned by the wealthy members of Hollywood, would he support a tax on the size of their homes. Example: Homes under 8,000 sq. ft.(twice the size of President Bush’s home in Texas)would be exempt. Over 8,000 there would be a progressive tax on the size of their homes to offset their impact on Global Warming.
Enjoy your interview! DWT

Ask him why he should have gotten a free pass when he was “dating” a minor? Anyone remember the Shoshana Lonstein incident?? I’m not advocating this action, but anyone else would’ve been raked over the coals and possibly arrested for such an action.

question? was that underage lowenstein board boobs real or fake?

PNAMARBLE on October 1, 2007 at 6:41 pm

I forget which comedian said this, but does Jerry agree that comedians make the best dramatic actors, since it’s more difficult to make people laugh?
Has Jerry ever thought about doing a serious role?
What’s the best thing about being Jerry Seinfeld?

rivfedup on October 1, 2007 at 7:00 pm

Ask him if he is friends with Michael Richards(Kramer) and how he feels about that whole N-word (non)controversy.

Jose on October 1, 2007 at 7:28 pm

Debbie, I want to know about Yiddishkeit in Hollywood. Who are the righteous gentiles? Who does he know to be anti-semitic. Are there any secret Jews? Please ask for me (and probably for Jewchick).

Ask him what it takes to make conservative blog witches go away.

Seinfeld was genius, comedy at its best. I’m a hard critic of television and I never regularly watched any other program (honest), but I own all the Seinfeld DVDs. I cannot at all understand anyone who does not see the wicked wit of that show. It was amazing. There has never been a comedy like that and I doubt if there will ever be one again. Seinfeld also got me through a several year period in my life where I was dealing with profound grief and loss, and it was the only thing that could make me really laugh. I will always be grateful to the cast of Seinfeld and to Larry David for that (though the latter is a shameful moonbat, I realize, as are most of the others). But as my mother used to say, “give the Devil his dues.”
I was sorry to hear that Jerry stole another man’s wife. Bad. But unless we know all the details of the situation, we really cannot judge fairly and it’s not our place to do so anyway. In one article, I read that Jessica’s first husband was indifferent to her all during their dating years and she had to give him an ultimatum to get a marriage proposal from him. Possibly she was always insecure about whether he really loved her, and then along comes Jerry who is clearly smitten with her from day one and wants to marry her. As a religious woman I say of course it is WRONG what they did, but it sounds like there is at least the possibility that her first husband was not an entirely innocent victim either.
I was also upset to hear that Jerry tried to cheat his realtor out of her commission because she didn’t answer his phone calls on shabbat (the realtor was observant and I’m sure he must have known that). Once he made the connection that she wasn’t just ignoring his calls but that she wasn’t receiving them at all for religious reasons, he should have apologized and paid her the commission instead of going to court — good grief. All that makes me sad because it means that Jerry, like so many Jews, is very far astray from his heritage and its ethical teachings.
There are a number of questions I could ask but really the only important one right now is, where does he stand on Israel? What role does he think celebrities should play in politics, if any? If he supports Israel, why doesn’t he stand up and say so publically? Has he ever visited Israel? If so, when? And what was his impression? I would like to see more vocal support for Israel coming from the entertainment biz, which is, we are told, “controlled by Jews.” heh. If it were me, I’d press him on that one. Remind him of the story of Esther — he is in a position of wealth and prominence for a reason, and he cannot pretend that his life will be safe just because he “lives in the King’s palace.”
I’d be surprised if Jerry wanted to talk about anything but his upcoming movie. I can’t see how it would be useful to bring up personal scandals from his past — it doesn’t really make a difference in anyone’s life. But his political views combined with his wealth and position in society COULD have an impact on politics, so that would be more relevant to me, as a reader.

Damn! This is what I get for not checking your site for one day.
To not flatter His Celebritiness by asking him to chime in directly on politics, here are my Top Ten Questions for Jerry Seinfeld. They reference his profession and his person, and may or may not have political overtones:
1. Do you consider yourself “a Jewish comedian”? How, exactly?
2. What did you think of Munich?
3. What did you think of Schindler’s List?
4. Have you ever visited either Auschwitz or Israel?
5. Where were you on the morning of September 11, 2001? How did the news coverage that morning (or other means of learning about the attacks) affect you?
6. Have you ever traveled overseas to perform for American servicemen and women? If so, Why? If not, Why not?
7. Had you been offered the role of Daniel Pearl in A Mighty Heart, would you have taken it? If so, Why? If not, Why Not?
8. Mets or Yankees? Jets or Giants? Rangers or Islanders? Knicks or Nets? …. Hillary or Rudy?
9. Have you ever called any woman, seriously or in jest, “an ignorant slut” (a la the original SNL)? If so, Who? Where? When? Why?
10. If you were a tree, what kind would you be?
11. What did you think of Spinal Tap?

Wish I’d seen this earlier.
Like one or two others, I would have asked him why he didn’t marry that Shoshana Lonstein babe. That gal had some major yabbos!!!!! She was super hot.
But, I would like you to ask him about Jason Alexander’s beliefs. I forget exactly, but I remember you called into Stern’s show one time and was opposing him on an issue. I think he supported Islamic extremists or something.

Jeff_W on October 2, 2007 at 11:13 am

Jason Alexander is a moonbat who traveled to Gaza in support of the Palis. He considers himself a “peace activist.” We’ve seen those before, right, gang?
A pity, because George is my favorite character.
