Publisher Description

The first book in twenty-five years from “one of our great comic minds” (The Washington Post) features Seinfeld’s 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 this “trove of laugh-out-loud one-liners” (Associated Press), you 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.

Is this a compilation?

Yeah, it is. Jerry walks you through memory lane from past decades to today of his comedy. Familiar favorites and ones you missed the first time around. Worth the read. I thought afterward “Gee, it would have been nice if I could have heard Jerry say all the bits.” Only then did I realize that I could have bought the read-by-the-author audio version.

Yada Yada Yada the whole book

As if he doesn’t have enough money, he had to take more of mine to sell me the same jokes he’s been telling for years. Love Jerry! Would have loved some new material even more!
