Jerry Seinfeld‘s publicist announced early Friday that the comedian had launched his own website vis-a-vis the 30th anniversary of his first national broadcast appearance.
The site www.jerryseinfeld.com went live at 9 a.m. on May 6. It offers all the admirers of Seinfeld’s comedic chops daily clips from his stand-up routines and television appearances from 1977 to present. There, Seinfeld explains what inspired him to create the website.
“When I was ten years old, I started watching stand up comedians on TV. I fell in love with them and I’m just as fascinated with stand up comedy today. Somewhere out there are ten year olds just waiting to get hooked on this strange pursuit. This is for them. I’m just hoping somehow it will keep this silliness going.”
Each day Seinfeld will personally pick three clips ranging from 30 seconds to two minutes in length that will stay on for 24 hours, after which they will be replaced with a fresh trio. Among the hand-picked bits for the site’s debut is The Fattest Man in the World, which was recorded on May 6, 1981, at Seinfeld’s first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Other clips that are featured today are Horse Rocket Power and A Horse Named Crazy Glue .
