What is the deal with Jerry Seinfeld not playing college campuses during his stand-up comedy tours? Well, the deal, as it so happens, is that politically correct culture has become too rampant for him to have any fun, so he's taking his observational humor ball and going home. To be fair, though, the ESPN interviewer who asked him about it kind of set him up by pointing to other comics who have stopped playing campuses because of the PC climate. "I don't play colleges," Seinfeld says, "But I hear a lot of people say, 'Don't go near colleges, they're so PC.'"
But that didn't stop him from chiming in on the on-campus climate anyway."They just want to use these words," Seinfeld expounds. "That's racist, that's sexist, that's prejudice.' They don't even know what they're talking about."And obviously the best way to make sure that these folks — full-time students, mind you — actually learn anything about what you think they've got wrong is to just avoid them all together. Naturally.
