Jerry Seinfeld's children don't think he is funny.

The 70-year-old actor - who has Sascha, 23, Julian, 21, and 18-year-old Shepherd with his wife Jessica - has amassed great success in comedy with his classic sitcom 'Seinfeld' but admitted he "doesn't want" his kids to think he is good and they are "used" to his jokes by now.

He told E! News: "You don't want your kids to think you're that great. A lot of times if I try to be funny around them, they'll go, 'Is that one of your bits dad? Is that some new bit for you?' They're pretty used to it."

The stand-up star is even unsure whether any of his kids have watched the show that brought him worldwide fame.

He said: "I actually have never asked them if they've seen the show."

Just days ago, Jerry admitted that he believes trying to avoid offending everyone with their material in comedy can often lead to "stupid mistakes" on stage and thinks that aspiring performers should simply look in the newspaper when trying to come up with things to say.

He told Page Six: "Political correctness is something of a worry for people that can’t think. The stupid mistakes I see people making sometimes - offensive, unnecessary insensitivities.

"It's like...pick up a paper, find out what is going on and then just navigate around it!"

Jerry has now made his feature directorial debut with 'Unfrosted', an upcoming comedy loosely based on the true story of the creation of Pop-Tarts toaster pastries and recalled that the breakfast snack was a favourite of his from his childhood because it was so original at the time.

He said: [Pop-Tarts] just kind of stuck out. There’s like a few things that I remember from childhood that [I was] like, ‘Wow! I can’t believe they’re giving us that, like Silly Putty and G.I Joe and...that's why Barbie was such a big thing. It's like 'Wow, somebody invented a really crazy toy here and the Pop-Tart was the craziest food that I remember. Cereal was a normal thing but the Pop-Tart, it didn't have anything to do with anything! It just seemed so space age, and it was great!"
