Staff Reviews


Throughout his career, Jerry Seinfeld wrote his jokes on paper and kept them in an accordion file folder. This book is a compilation of those jokes, with each chapter representing a decade. It’s pretty basic, very funny, and exactly why I’d call Jerry the king of observational comedy.  Whether you watched “Seinfeld” the first time around or grew up on the reruns, you will hear Jerry’s voice and inflection as you read and you will laugh, often out loud!

— Laura B.

Description


The first book in twenty-five years from Jerry Seinfeld features his best work across five decades in comedy.

Since his first performance at the legendary New York nightclub “Catch a Rising Star” as a twenty-one-year-old college student in fall of 1975, Jerry Seinfeld has written his own material and saved everything. “Whenever I came up with a funny bit, whether it happened on a stage, in a conversation, or working it out on my preferred canvas, the big yellow legal pad, I kept it in one of those old school accordion folders,” Seinfeld writes. “So I have everything I thought was worth saving from forty-five years of hacking away at this for all I was worth.”

For this book, Jerry Seinfeld has selected his favorite material, organized decade by decade. In one brilliantly crafted observation after another, listeners will witness the evolution of one of the great comedians of our time and gain new insights into the thrilling but unforgiving art of writing stand-up comedy.
