Eddie Pepitone on Jerry Seinfeld’s Act: ‘With All Due Respect, It’s Quite Superficial’


“I think stand ups who have something to say are interesting … The lineage of Lenny Bruce to George Carlin to Richard Pryor to Bill Hicks. Not Jerry Seinfeld, let me put it that way. He talks about why pizza is stuffed with cheese in the crust. I’m not saying that doesn’t have its place, but with all due respect, it’s quite superficial. But a lot of people like that milquetoast stuff.”
