And what’s the deal with the Royal Wedding, eh Jerry?
Jerry Seinfeld called the Royal Wedding a circus act when he was interviewed in New York for ITV’s Daybreak when promoting his upcoming performance at London’s O2 Arena.
Asked is he was excited about the wedding he replied sarcastically, “Yes, I’m very excited. Well it’s a circus act, it’s an absurd act.
“You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that – that’s what theatre is,’ he continued.
“That’s why the British have the greatest theatre in the world. They love to dress up and they love to play pretend.
“And that’s what the Royal Family is – it’s a huge game of pretend. These aren’t special people – it’s fake outfits, fake phoney hats and gowns.
“It’s fantastic. We don’t have anything like that.”
Well, except an entire town named Hollywood, perhaps…
How well his comments will go down remains to be seen.
Daybreak hosts Christine Bleakley and Adrian Chiles appeared taken aback, Bleakley joking, “How dare he!”
Chiles appeared very offended by Seinfeld‘s opinion: “I’ll join in on any of that stuff, if it’s a Brit doing it. But I can’t bear Americans criticising the Royal family. It turns me into a Royalist!”
“He’ll be doing that show from the Tower of London, never mind the O2.”
Yada, yada, yada….
