Jerry Seinfeld Jokes About Process For Talk Show Interview With Seth Meyers

Jerry Seinfeld finally makes an appearance on 'Late Night' and jokes that he's been looking for a new late night talk show since David Letterman and Jay Leno have both retired.

Seinfeld also jokes about the process behind make a talk show appearance, including the pre-interviews, and being nagged by producers to appear on the show.

"I've done a few things and I feel like you want this job so I think you should do the work," he says. "Because let's just be completely candid."

"I didn't call you to say 'I'd love to be on your show'. I did not."

As for him owing Meyers for appearing on 'Comedians with Cars', Jerry quips: "I don't. I owe nothing to anyone."

"I don't have time for this. I don't really need it. I don't want it," he says of his response to be on the show. "But they keep calling so eventually I say 'Okay, fine.'"

"So then what do you think his producer says? 'Well, what do you want to do'. What do I want to do? I don't want to do anything! I don't want to be on these shows!"

"Why should I do a pre-interview," he sums up. "You want me here. I don't want to be here!"

Seinfeld does go on to compliment Seth Meyers for not using any cue cards.

The comedian also admitted he's amazed 'Seinfeld' is still raking in the millions, with the new Hulu deal all these years after it ended.
