Jerry Seinfeld on Late Show with David Letterman

“I really don’t want to hear what most people want to say.”

So sayeth Jerry Seinfeld, 60-year-old gabillionaire comedian, to multi-millionaire TV host David Letterman, on Thursday night’s episode of Late Show with David Letterman. Seinfeld sticks to his tradition of wanting to perform stand-up before sitting down for panel chat, and in this set, he makes plenty of observations about popular sayings he wishes people wouldn’t keep saying — and takes a moment to observe the meta of himself talking on a talk show to do it — after first divulging his dislike of motorists who apply stick-figure family stickers to the backs of their cars.

Roll the clip.

And here’s another clip from the beginning of Seinfeld’s panel chat with Letterman after the commercial break, wherein Seinfeld jokes that he doesn’t have a bucket list now that he’s 60. “I made a bucket list, then I turned the B to an F and I was done with it.”

That top photo lets you see the list — neither bucket nor f-it, but rather set list — Seinfeld had prepared for the show.

It all comes back to cars, though. And so, Seinfeld also announced the upcoming guests for his latest season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which will find him driving and drinking but not drinking and driving with Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Ali Wentworth and Miranda Sings.
