Comedy At Its Best With Jerry Seinfeld and Sinbad
Jerry Seinfeld Was Live On “Good Morning America”
A genuine smile evolved into laughter that filled the room as news anchors of Good Morning America interviewed one of the most talented comedians in the world. Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos started this task as they interviewed the very talented #Jerry Seinfeld. Robin started the interview by acknowledging, “Ladies and gentlemen live here on #Good Morning America. You can tell we are a little bit excited here. We’re excited about the book but l have to ask you this? l know that you and your wife Jessica are big Mets fans and for her birthday could you please explain the cutouts of your cats?” Jerry smiled and went on to explain, “The cats are my wife’s primary relationship. Everbody else kinda you know is secondary and so l wanted the cats to be cutouts at City Field so when we watch the games, she could see the cats. Otherwise she won’t watch the games. Robin jokingly asked, “Well wait a minute, don’t ya’ll have dogs?“ Jerry agreed,”We have dogs too but the cats have kind of taken over the family dynamic. I don’t know why. I don’t really understand the cat thing but people love how little they give you. l don’t know why? It’s a fascinating thing to watch.” I laughed out loudly because l am in total agreement with Jerry. My cat Midnight gives me very little love only when she feels like it. When Midnight is done with the little love l do receive she walks away as if to say, “l’m done with you for now. It’s nap time and please don’t disturb me.” I don’t quite understand the cat thing either.
Another question was raised concerning the best gift Jerry has ever given his wife Jessica? Jerry smiled with a source of pride, “l gave my wife a weekend trip to Paris. And l also gave her one of those cats in a box. Which is something l have always wanted to do. Don’t die without giving someone a kitten or a puppy in a box as a surprise. That’s one of life’s greatest things.” All of GMA ‘s anchors laughed as Jerry joined them due to this hilarious comment.
News anchor Amy Robach also reflected on Jerry’s home situation in comparison to her own. “Jerry l think it’s pretty funny we are living parallel lives. We both have teenagers at home almost the exact same ages. And so even with a full house I’m very impressed that you have managed to write a book in 25 years. It took 25 years for your first book, #Is This Anything and you have new material. Do you test any of these jokes out on your teenagers because my teenagers do not think I’m funny. Do your teenagers think you are?” Jerry quickly responded with laughter and sarcasm, “Well the difference between us is ah, l’m a professional comedian. You see. Humor is kind of what l do.“ Amy continued to pry a response out of Jerry concerning her question. “So they think you are funny?” Seinfeld never responded to Amy’s question but instead this response brought laughter as he continued, “So maybe that’s why we are having a different experience in that my kids ah!”
George Stephanopoulos continued the interview by discussing Jerry Seinfeld‘s new book Is This Anything? “I love the book.” Jerry humbly acknowledged with a smile, “Thank you. The book is ah, l didn’t really write the book. I kinda had to assemble it but it’s forty-five years of writing that l had already done that l was convinced by some people around me that you should show people this. So ah!“
After Jerry’s response George mentioned, You did write the new opening and that’s what l found so fascinating because it’s really about how you became a comedian and it kind of just shines through that this is what you were going to do no matter how it turned out.” Jerry admitted with a smile, “Yes. I feel in love with it and l decided, when you love it so much then that’s your thing. And l came actually at the Museum of Natural History but my first apartment is about a block over there on the Upper Westside of Manhattan and this is where l came in 1976. l got this little one room apartment and just started going out to these places at night and I had no money for years and years. And I was very happy and ah, I still am. I still only care the most about the laughs of anything.“ Without hesitation George asked an intriguing question regarding the book. ”How did you know to save every single joke?” Jerry responded, “l mentioned this in the introduction a lot of people asked me why did you save these jokes? To that l would say, why would l save anything else. This is the only thing to me that has great value that l have. But a lot of them were just notes or scratchings of things. So l had to really assemble all them. It took me about a year to do it. It’s 45 years a bits. So it’s just bits and they are very carefully assembled. I really enjoyed assembling sentences and it kind of runs and putting it together. They’re like little puzzles to me.”
George presented Jerry Seinfeld with a special message by expressing, “We gotta a special message coming in for you.” A previous buddy and comedian of Jerry’s television show Seinfeld Jason Alexander spoke with tremendous excitement, “Hello America, it’s Jason Alexander. Apparently my old pal Jerry Seinfeld has written a new book. Well that’s not surprising. Jerry has written every book you see on the shelves behind me. This is just a Seinfeld section. Congratulations Jerry. I’m sure it’s gonna be another huge success. I love you brother. And as we used to say on Stage Nine, ‘serenity now.‘“ All the GMA crew said, “Wow!“ Jerry laughed loudly and asked, “Don’t you miss us?“ Without faltering one anchor expressed with excitement, “Oh yeah! Sure do.” They laughed together in agreement concerning how much Jerry Seinfeld‘s show was missed.
George ended the interview by expressing, “Jerry thanks a lot. The new book, Is This Anything. It’s available everywhere. Tomorrow you can read an excerpt on our website Good Morning America.com.

Sheila then went on to sing her favorite song, Move With You, as backup dancers joined her. She came out in a stunning black dress with a white scarf, casually draped over her shoulders. Sheila, was dressed by "Dare 2 Boutique," described as "like no other store because it is an experience, and so we ask, do you Dare 2 take part in this experience with us?"

e Intruders Performed Harmonic Oldies
This delightfully talented group can still captivate an audience with their oldies such as I Wanna Know Your Name and Cowboy and Girls. The Intruders, consist of members Bobby Starr, Glen Montgomery, Phil Gay and Curtis Warren. A powerful rendition of Luther Vandross', Still In Love was performed by Warren. It was pleasing to the ear to hear powerful classic love songs performed by this Philadelphia International group. The Intruders have the unique ability to have a conglomerate of lead singers within their group. They have the incredible ability to sing ballads that mirror our lives. We look forward to their continuous sources of musical talent in the future.

Then it was time for the main attraction and "a time for laughter."
Sinbad the "King of Clean Comedy"
The host Parris introduced Sinbad as "the greatest comedian in the world. It is a clean comedy, and that is what we appreciate about him. Laughter is good for the heart. Are you ready to feel good to your soul?" she asked. The audience responded, and #Sinbad arrived on stage casually dressed as the audience screamed and clapped with Hollywood Swingers, playing in the background. Sinbad requested that the lights be turned up so that he could answer any questions that women in the audience may have about men. Sinbad started by humorously making a joke about Adam and Eve, where Adam should have eaten a tangerine rather than an apple. Then he would have had time to think about what he was doing.
Sinbad went on to amuse the audience with funny comments about women ruling the world. He had the audience in stitches as he stated, "Y'all can say what you feel, there's not a man here running nothing. Any woman that feels powerless don't know her power. Any woman that feels powerless need to get with a group of angry women." He continued to talk about love and marriage. Questions came from the audience. Sinbad, masterfully explained why men leave the toilet seat up which was asked by a female audience member. He told that maybe women are wrong and the toilet seat should stay up, not down. Audience members roared with laughter at these various scenarios. Sinbad kept his hilarious responses clean and engaging.
Sinbad was close friends with the late Prince Rogers Nelson is better known as #Prince. He attended the memorial service at the local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. Sinbad, also appeared on the #Soul Train Awards, with Cool and the Gang, who received an honorary award for their years of rhythmic music.
