Comedian Jerry Seinfeld said in a recent radio interview that he refuses to do college shows because today's students are too politically correct.

The comedian told ESPN's Colin Cowherd that he's constantly being warned to stay away from colleges because they are "too PC."

Seinfeld said teens and college students fail to appreciate the gist of comedy because all they want to do is use politically correct terms that they fail to really understand. "They just want to use these words: 'That's racist;' 'That's sexist;' 'That's prejudice,'" said the Seinfeld actor. "They don't know what the [expletive] they're talking about."

The entertainer reiterates how his 14-year-old daughter dropped the same "PC" lingo while having a chat with his wife.

"My wife says to her, 'Well, you know, in the next couple years, I think maybe you're going to want to be hanging around the city more on the weekends, so you can see boys.'" Seinfeld recalled how his daughter shot back with, "that's sexist" to the suggestion.

For now, the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee host is in the pool with peers, like Chris Rock and Larry the Cable Guy, who also refuse to do college shows because of the politically correct "climate" that he says is killing comedy.

Seinfeld said comedians may be overcalculating their jokes to avoid stepping on toes. "Everyone...is kind of, with their calculating—is this the exact right mix," he said. "To me, it's anti-comedy. It's more about PC nonsense.

"I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that," Seinfeld said.

But the humorist is not holding back: "If I wanted to say something, I would say it."

Seinfeld is on tour with an upcoming show on June 10 in Sioux City, Iowa.
