“I remember him making fun of how I bowed,” Regan said. “Apparently I’ve never taken any bowing classes. That’s something they don’t teach, so I would finish my set and then just kind of lean over a little bit.”
Needless to say, Regan now refrains from doing the awkward lean at the end of his acts, but the playful banter between Regan and Seinfeld continues when Regan gets the occasional phone call from Seinfeld. Watch Regan’s guest turn on Seinfeld’s web series, “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” and you’ll get a taste of the repartee.
“Years ago I was much more fascinated with the idea of doing a sitcom,” Regan said of the “Seinfeld” factor. “But now that the stand-up career has gotten to a pretty nice place, that desire isn’t as strong as it used to be. I like the autonomy of being a stand up comedian. It would be hard for me to give that up to be on a TV show.”
