You’re The Guy Paving

I love Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee series. The latest episode has Lorne Michaels, long time producer of Saturday Night Live (assuming that explanation was superfluous). Given that Lorne isn’t a comedian, it may not be the funniest episode, but it has great quotes:

…his grandfather came to America, and was told the streets were paved with gold. And when he got to America he found out three things:

1) The streets are not paved with gold

2) The streets are not paved

3) He’s gonna be the guy paving them

And I think anything you start, you’re in that position

And a classic from a total New Yorker:

There’s a thing that happens when you grow up in a city like Toronto. People are always saying things like, “I think the Italian food here is as good as any restaurant in New York”. And I say, “You know where they don’t say that?… (Jerry laughs) is in New York”

Just watch it. A great car and cameos from Jimmy Fallon and Julia Louis-Dreyfus…
