Comedian Jerry Seinfeld creates Web site with life's work
Web site will contain all of Seinfeld's comedic output, and not just from TV show
Every joke. Every skit. Every funny saying. Everything ever spoken in connection with his comedic stylings. TV comedian Jerry Seinfeld has launched a Web site serving as a warehouse for pretty much everything he's ever performed.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld says he's offering the site to young would-be comedians. "Somewhere out there are 10-year-olds just waiting to get hooked on this strange pursuit," he writes. "This is for them."
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - JerrySeinfeld.com went live last week with three short comedy clips, "The Fattest Man in the World" from The Tonight Show in 1981, "Do the Horses Know They're Racing?" from a 1988 HBO special and "No Room in the Newspaper" from "The Tonight Show" in 1990.
The will be offering the content by running just three new clips per day, which range from 30 seconds to two minutes, which will be available for only 24 hours and then will be replaced with three new ones.
Seinfeld says he's offering the site to young would-be comedians. "Somewhere out there are 10-year-olds just waiting to get hooked on this strange pursuit," he writes. "This is for them."
Seinfeld's straight-to-the-fans media model comes after Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park launched South Park Digital Studios, a joint venture between the two and Comedy Central in 2007 that made all their work available online.
The notion of treating comedy bits like songs by cutting them into bite-sized digital pieces has been employed by Sirius XM's various comedy channels for some time. And just this week, Pandora also added 10,000 such bits to its libraries.
