Born Funny

Jerry Seinfield on CBS Sunday Morning, April 17, 2011

What’s the best thing about being Jewish for you? CBS’ Rita Braver asked the comedian in an interview.

 “Well, there’s no question that a lot of the, whatever gifts that I have . . . came through this strain of DNA. It can’t just be a coincidence that I know how to do this; I didn’t learn all this, you know what I mean? How to be a comedian, and how to think funny, or talk funny. Some of that was put in me from other Jews. So, you know, I’m grateful for that.”
