Watch Jerry Seinfeld Profess His Distrust of Buffets and Doughnut Holes

New, 2 comments

The legendary comedian did standup last night on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Jerry Seinfeld has a lot of feelings about buffets. To promote the debut of his new year-long standup residency at New York City's Beacon Theatre, the Seinfeld creator and current "Comedians in Cars With Coffee" star appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night to present his classically Seinfeldian takes on a number of subjects.

Seinfeld weighs in on everything from the American obesity epidemic ("I don't believe we have a weight problem until we're all physically touching each other all the time ... like a jar of olives") to the "freaky metaphysical concept" of doughnut holes, which he argues should actually be called doughnut plugs. And on the subject of all-you-can-eat bonanzas, he rightly proclaims, "Nobody would go into a restaurant and say to the waiter, 'I want a yogurt parfait, spare ribs, a waffle, four cookies, and an egg white omelette.'"
