>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK TO MY

EIGHT-PART SERIES WITH JERRY

SEINFELD.

JERRY, LET ME ASK YOU THIS.

WHY DID YOU DO THIS SHOW?

>> IT'S A VERY PERSONAL LITTLE

THING.

I DID IT AS AN EXPERIMENT LAST

YEAR, AND I PUT IT ON THE

INTERNET WITHOUT TELLING

ANYBODY, NO PRESS, NO INTERVIEW,

NO ADS, NOTHING.

PEOPLE STARTED TO LIKE IT.

>> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE TO PAY?

TO BE ON IT.

Stephen: NO, TO WATCH IT.

NO, IT'S FREE.

IT'S FREE.

>> Stephen: DO YOU GET PAID TO

DO IT?

>> WE'RE MAKING ENOUGH MONEY TO

KEEP DOING IT.

AT THIS POINT.

THANK TO THE ACCURA CAR COMPANY

AFTER WE MADE THE ONES LAST

YEAR, THEY SAID WE'LL PAY FOR

YOU TO MAKE SOME MORE.

>> Stephen: WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO

PUT A GRAPHIC OF ACCURA UP RIGHT

NOW.

>> YES.

IF THEY HADN'T SAID WE'LL DO

THIS.

THAT WOULD BE THE END OF IT.

>> Stephen: IF IT WASN'T FOR FAT

POCKETS, WE WOULDN'T BE TALKING

RIGHT NOW.

BY THE WAY, ACCURA AND HOT

POCKETS ARE MADE OUT OF THE SAME

MATERIAL.

I'M NOT A COMEDIAN BUT I'M

INTERESTED IN COMEDIANS.

WHO DID YOU LIKE?

WHO WERE THE PEOPLE THAT YOU

WANTED TO BE WHEN YOU WERE

YOUNGER.

YOU'RE JUST SITTING HERE TALKING

TO COMEDIANS.

IF YOU COULD PUT ANY COMEDIAN IN

THAT CAR WHO INFLUENCED YOU, WHO

WOULD IT BE?

>> ALMOST EVERY COMEDIAN I SAW

WHEN I WAS A KID INFLUENCED ME

JUST BECAUSE I DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND, I GUESS MOST PEOPLE

DO, WHEN YOU SEE COMEDIANS ON TV

AND THEY COME OUT ON THESE SHOWS

AND ANY STAND THERE AND THEY

JUST KEEP TALKING IN A SERIES OF

JOKES.

AND I THOUGHT, WHAT IS THIS?

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE THAT CAN DO

THIS?

AND I THOUGHT THEY WERE SOME

KIND OF, AS CHRIS SAYS, FREAKISH

PEOPLE THAT CAN JUST TALK IN A

SERIES OF JOKES.

BUT YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

YOU HAVE TO... IT'S A PROFESSION

THAT YOU LEARN HOW TO DO.

IS ANY OF THIS NEWS?

>> Stephen: ALL OF IT.

ALL OF IT IS NEWS TO ME.

BUT YOU'RE YELLING IT AT ME, YOU

REALIZE.

YOU'RE YELLING IT AT ME.

YOU'RE DOMINATING ME RIGHT NOW.

SEE, I'M BACK.

YOU'RE FORWARD.

YOU'RE YELLING THIS AT ME.

>> THAT IS STEP ONE.

Stephen: IS THIS A DEFENSE

MECHANISM BECAUSE A LOT OF

PEOPLE USE ANGER OR JOKES AS A

DEFENSE MECHANISM.

>> NO, I USE IT TO CONTROL

OTHERS.

>> Stephen: WHICH IS ANOTHER

FORM.

TEHRANS DO THAT.

TYRANTS ARE AFRAID OF THEIR OWN

PEOPLE.

THEY CONTROL THEM BECAUSE

THEY'RE AFRAID OF BEING

OVERTHROWN.

>> BASICALLY STAND-UP IS A RALLY

IN AN EGYPTIAN SQUARE FOR MONEY.

>> Stephen: ANSWER MY QUESTION.

WHO WERE THE PEOPLE THAT YOU

LIKED?

>> I LOVED ALAN KING, RICHARD

PRYOR.

ANYBODY THAT CAME OUT AND STOOD

THERE AND JUST TALKD IN A SERIES

OF JOKES, I JUST THOUGHT WHO ARE

THESE PEOPLE WHO CAN DO THIS?

COSBY.

I LOVE COSBY.

>> Stephen: MY FAVORITE.

VERY FUNNY FELLOW.

BILL COSBY IS A VERY FUNNY

FELLOW, RIGHT.

>> COSBY AND CARLIN AND ROBERT

KLEIN.

>> Stephen: ARE YOU SATISFIED

WITH BEING JERRY SEINFELD?

>> WELL, IF I'M NOT, I'M GOING

TO NEED SOME SERIOUS HELP

BECAUSE THAT GUY...

>> Stephen: SOME OF THE

PERFORMERS, SOME PERFORMERS

AREN'T SATISFIED WITH BEING

THEMSELVES.

THEY ALWAYS HAVE SOME SORT OF

NEED TO BE SOMETHING ELSE OR TO

PROVE THEMSELVES AS A PERFORMER.

>> WELL, I WOULD SAY, YOU KNOW,

THAT REALLY IS THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN COMEDIANS AND PEOPLE WHO

PLAY OTHER PEOPLE.

COME ON.

STAY CALM.

>> Stephen: BUT YOU'RE LIKE THE

BIGGEST, YOU HAD THE BIGGEST

SHOW OF ALL TIME.

IS THERE ANYTHING LEFT FOR YOU.

>> PLEASE, PLEASE, FINISH YOUR

THOUGHT.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: I DON'T USUALLY

DRINK COFFEE WITH A GUEST.

>> COMEDIANS...

Stephen: YOU KNOW NONE OF

THIS IS GOING ON THE AIR, RIGHT?

>> REALLY.

Stephen: WE'RE LIKE AN HOUR

AND 15 AT THIS POINT.

I'M ACTUALLY TAKING TIME FROM

YOUR SHOW ON THE INTERNET AT

THIS POINT.

JERRY SEINFELD, THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING ME.

>> MY PLEASURE.

Stephen: COMEDIANS, CARS

GETTING COFFEE.

THE MAN IS JERRY SEINFELD.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
