Jerry Seinfeld Thinks Too Much Political Correctness Hurting Comedy

Jerry Seinfeld says too much political correctness is making it difficult for comedians to be funny.

"I don't play colleges, but I hear a lot people tell me 'Don't go near colleges,'" he tells ESPN Radio in an interview. "They're so PC."

Seinfeld says many comedians were now afraid of making an off-color joke that would offend someone.

"I'll give you an example: My daughter's 14," he explains. "My wife says to her, 'Well, you know, in the next couple years, I think maybe you're going to want to be hanging around the city more on the weekends, so you can see boys.'"

"You know what my daughter says? She says, 'That's sexist.'"

"They just want to use these words -- 'That's racist,' 'That's sexist,' 'That's prejudice,'" he says. "They don't even know what the f--k they're talking about."

Seinfeld then praised comics like Louis CK, who hasn't shied away from his material.

"Louis' great gift is that he doesn't worry. He just does his thing."
