Seinfeld Says ‘Extreme Left’ Ruined Comedy

Apr 30, 2024

Comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld said in late April that the “extreme left” and political correctness (PC) have ruined comedy television.

Seinfeld made the remarks during an interview with “The New Yorker Radio Hour” to host David Remnick, where he was promoting his upcoming film “Unfrosted.”

“Nothing really affects comedy. People always need it, they need it so badly and they don’t get it. It used to be you would go home at the end of the day; most people would go, “Oh, ‘Cheers’ is on,” “Oh, ‘M*A*S*H’ is on,” “Oh, Mary Tyler Moore is on,” “All in the Family is on.” You just expected, “There’ll be some funny stuff we can watch on TV tonight.” Well, guess what? Where is it? Where is it?” Seinfeld told the show. (LEARN MORE: Dennis Quaid Gives Preview Of ‘Reagan’)

“This is the result of the extreme Left and PC and people worrying so much about offending other people. Now they’re going to see stand-up comics cause we are not policed by anyone. The audience polices us. We know when we’re off-track — we know instantly and we adjust to it instantly — but when you write a script and it goes into four or five different hands, committees, groups, ‘Here’s our thought about this joke,’ well, that’s the end of your comedy.”

Comedy television is here to make us laugh and escape the darker aspects of modern society, but sometimes it can be a little too much. As Seinfeld says, there is truly a limitation on truly funny shows these days … but what about shows and movies that make you grow unending happiness and joy in your relationship with God?

Did you know that more than 50% of the people who watch “The Chosen” say they’re not Christian? “We were also surprised about the level of Gen Z and younger that were consuming our show — because our core audience is definitely millennial and older,” she said. “But just to see not only the balance between females and males watching our show, which is wonderful — because the church is definitely not that balanced at times — and then to see the younger generation but also the non-Christian faith audience come to the table has been a joy,” VP of original content with “The Chosen,” Katherine Warnock told Christian Headlines in March.

Where To Watch “The Chosen”
