Jerry Seinfeld: Kate Middleton and Prince William Aren't Special!

Oh, how I love it when celebrities get too old to care about being offensive. Jerry Seinfeld, who will be performing his standup in London soon, called the Royal Wedding hoopla “an absurd act”, likening it to a circus.

He visited the show Daybreak and was asked if he’s looking forward to the upcoming wedding.

“Yes, I'm very excited," Seinfeld said. "Well it's a circus act, it's an absurd act."

It would be so cool if the Royal Wedding actually were a circus act. Throw in a lion and a guy walking a tightrope—greatest wedding of all time.

Seinfeld continued, “You know, it's dress-up. It's a classic English thing of let's play dress-up. Let's pretend that these are special people. OK, we'll all pretend that—that's what theater is.

"That's why the British have the greatest theater in the world. They love to dress up and they love to play pretend. And that's what the royal family is—it's a huge game of pretend. These aren't special people—it's fake outfits, fake phony hats and gowns.”

And speaking of a clown on a unicycle, Jerry then tried to back peddle from his scathing statement:

“It’s fantastic,” he said, attempting to take salt from the wound. “We don’t have anything like that.”
