Jewish-American comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld shared what he said was the best “Jew joke” he had ever heard during a guest appearance this week on the podcast Norm Macdonald Live.

The “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” star explained that host Macdonald and other non-Jews might not find the humor in the somewhat confusing joke, but, Seinfeld said, “That’s the joke, is that you won’t get it.”

“The setup of the joke is that it’s a Jew joke,” Seinfeld noted before telling it over: “Two gentile businessman meet on the street. One of them says, ‘How’s business?’ The other one says, ‘Great!’”

As predicted, Macdonald didn’t laugh. His co-host Adam Egert, who is Jewish, laughed along but admitted shortly afterwards that he misheard the joke and in fact didn’t understand it either.
