Found in LA: Jerry Seinfeld Loves Mozza and the Paparazzi

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Last night we couldn't get to the valet parking stand outside of Mozza because there were paparazzi all over the place. Naturally I jumped out of the car and joined them.

Jerry Seinfeld was waiting for his car and good-naturedly chatting with the paps about how long some of them have been around. So I joined in the conversation.

Me: You're my very first street paparazzi-ing. May I take your picture? (He poses for me)

Me: I'm brand new at this

Jerry: Yeah, I can tell by your "professional" equipment (gestures at my Rebel XT)

Me: Oh, my flip flash? You don't like my flip flash?

Mrs. Seinfeld: Also by your original approach

Me: Yeah, I guess I'm kind of bad at it...
(to Jerry) maybe if you punched me in the face

Jerry: That would be a terrible, terrible thing

Me: But it would give me instant street cred

A handler/manager/something: Alright, alright, that's enough...
