Personal Quote:

I get asked, 'What do you think the social responsibility of your shows is?' The truth is, I'm in entertainment, not in news. I don't know what the social responsibility of Seinfeld (1989) is...I will do almost anything for a good number. As long as it doesn't hurt me, the company or my audience. I don't cross into human suffering, making fun of a hurting person. See more »
