EXCLUSIVE: Jerry Seinfeld Offers Amy Schumer Secret to His Success: Don't Do Anything Just for Money

By
Jerry Seinfeld gave Amy Schumer some invaluable advice on navigating her way through show business.
The legendary comedian topped Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid comedians in 2015, but ironically his fortune was amassed by not chasing after money.
"Don't every do anything just for the money, do it because you love it," Seinfeld said. "If you do it because you love it, it will always end up being the right decision no matter how it turns out."
So far it looks like Schumer's been following Seinfeld's advice. She recently took part in an Annie Leibovitz photo shoot that left her feeling "more beautiful than [she's] ever felt in [her] life." She also performed at a Baby Buggy charity event for Seinfeld's wife Jessica.
When he's not joking around with his funny friends on the Crackle web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, fans can catch Seinfeld once a month at New York City's Beacon Theatre roughly once a month starting Jan. 7.
Seinfeld's Beacon series, named Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestead, mirrors an arrangement similar to one that Madison Square Garden made with Billy Joel two years prior. The comedian called out the coincidence onstage.
"I bought Billy Joel's house about 15 years ago and I thought as long as I have his house, why don't I steal his whole career?" Seinfeld joked.
While the residency is sure to bring in crowds, it's still unclear whether his three children will be part of the audience.
"They do think Dad's funny, but I don't do my set at home," Seinfeld told ET. "That's kind of a more professional thing, but I don't think they're going to come either. Maybe they will. I don't know. I don't know what they think of what I do. I really don't."
