Jerry Seinfeld Steers David Letterman From Michelle Wolf To Raisins For Netflix


Chatting with Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman applauded Michelle Wolf’s controversial White House Correspondents Dinner appearance.

“Whatever the reaction, there is no damage, and she had the guts to stand up there and didn’t apologize, where everybody is now apologizing for everything,” Letterman enthused of Wolf’s gig, for which the WHC Association’s president issued an almost-apology the next morning.

“I really had great admiration for the fact that she was able to just walk into that room and decimate the place,” Letterman said a promotional appearance from Netflix’s FYSEE space in Los Angeles.

Seinfeld said he hears Wolf is “out every night working on her stuff,” adding, “Those are the kind of people I really like.”

Asked if he does “Trump stuff” when he performs, Seinfeld said it did not interest him.

“I do a lot of raisin stuff,” he explained.

“I have a lot of raisin material…You have the Sun-Maid company, and you have the Raisinet people.”

“I just think it’s interesting that, after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, ‘Hey! Why don’t we put some chocolate on it?’ Imagine not thinking of that for 80 years,” Seinfeld pondered.

“That really gets me excited, that people pay me to talk about those kind of things,” he smiled.

Letterman’s  Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction now is streaming, as is stand-up special Jerry Before Seinfeld;  Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee will launch more episodes later this year.
