Jerry Seinfeld: My Netflix Special is Not a Documentary
Jimmy Fallon loved Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix special so much, he watched it twice. But, he insists, it’s a documentary. Seinfeld says no. Old photos, pictures of the house he grew up in, do not make it a documentary.
Jerry talks about Jimmy’s favorite scene– how he would sit and eat his lunch on a street corner eating his lunch while working sledgehammering walls, and four years later he was on The Tonight Show sitting next to Johnny Carson.
Later in the show Fallon and Seinfeld had the first ever Stand Up Battle. “You know this is all set up,” Seinfeld said, sledgehammering that fourth wall just like he used to before he was a comedian. “This is not real.” Jerry and Jimmy alternate delivering some of Jerry’s bits to see who can be the best Seinfeld. Guess who wins.
