Jerry Seinfeld Says Sascha Inherited His Sense of Humor
Forget the smile, forget the eye color. When it comes to passing traits on to his children, Jerry Seinfeld has given much more than the eye can see: the funnyman’s kids have inherited his sense of humor!
“Watching my kids, especially my daughter [Sascha, 9], it does seem to be in the DNA somewhere,” he tells GQ UK, “because I see her falling asleep with these big joke books.”
While he doesn’t doubt Sascha’s interest in comedy, Jerry admits her dedication still catches him off guard.
“She’s -years-old — she can read anything, why’s she reading jokes? I think it’s somewhere in the biology.”
The ability to mandate his own schedule as a stand-up comedian is something Jerry can’t appreciate enough. “You can take time off when you want to,” he says, adding that his career, in that aspect, mirrors that of a plumber. “You can work when you want to. I get to roll around with them all the time — it’s fantastic.”
In addition to Sascha, Jerry and wife Jessica Seinfeld are also parents to Julian Kal, 6 ½, and Shepherd Kellen, 4.
