During the virtual conversation with the star of the movie “The Jerk” at the New York festival 2020, Jerry Seinfeld indicated that he would rather go dinner with Steve Martin than himself.
The Seinfeld genius Jerry Seinfeld

As a popular stand-up comedian, Seinfeld specializes in observational comedy, surreal comedy, black humor, cringe comedy, deadpan, satire, and so on. He is also best recognized for his dumbstruck role in sitcom Seinfeld, which he co-created and co-written along with his fellow comedian Larry David in 1989.
The multitalented Steve Martin
Whereas Stephan Glenn Martin aged 75 years, is likewise an American comedian, writer, producer, and musician. He is a spectacle in genres like spur-of-the-moment comedy, musical comedy, wordplay, satire, etc. He came to the spotlight after the extraordinary work he had done as a writer for The Smothers Brother Comedy Hour and later as a frequent host on Saturday night live shows.
The relationship between these two comedians
At the New Yorker Festival 2020, these two comedians who have been pals since childhood recollected their first funny friends in grade school and their humorous talks during an hourly chat with each other and the magazine articles editor, Susan Morrison. Lately, these legendary comedians, Jerry Seinfeld and Steve Martin talked about the historic snubbing of comedies at the Oscars. This duo, where each one has comedy specials which eventually got released through Netflix, expressed the feeling of how frustrating things are about comedians’ relationships to the Academy Awards as they do not get enough credit for this year of work even if they are almost always tapped to host. Meanwhile, when the comedian Jerry Seinfeld was asked who would you like to have dinner with – Jerry Seinfeld or Steve Martin? And his answer was really sweet and unexpected, where he suggests you choose Martin over him, by stating that “Steve is humorous regularly. He would be the perfect person, who you always dreamed of taking to a cocktail party.” Furthermore, he added “ I don’t care about what folks expect. I just like to be funny for the fun of it. Yet I find it hard when I’m in kinda normal situations to be funny.”
