the funny Side of Normal life Hollywood Jerry Seinfeld int just an other standup comic who landed himself a part in a to to hear the Veteran funny Man describe Hes a comic who became at i want to be a comedian that what i really like to he told critics during a press Confer ence to promote his new which premieres Tomor Row at on Abc and that was one of the reasons i was so excited and willing to do this i didst really have that sitcom goal like most comedians the thing i didst get onto a i became you know what i mean that what the show its just the shows title is appropriate because its a chronicle of Seinfeld Day today antics in the original title was the Seinfeld but Abc abbreviated it after competing net work Abc launched the Marshall the Central character is Jerry standup and each episode will feature a mix of his at Home adventures and his onstage staying in los Angeles to work on the series is a real switch for the 35yearold who has worked steadily on the club circuit for More than a doing 300 stops a year and still squeezing in time for regular appearances on the tonight show and late night with David Letterman he has logged More than 25 guest spots on but Seinfeld insists that the weekly series is something hell do in addition to his standup not instead of enjoys Road life believe it or i actually enjoy being on the he i just feel privileged that i can make my living doing and i enjoy whatever i have to do to keep doing in not tired of and in hoping to keep doing it whenever in not working on this after More than 10 years in show business including a 1988 american comedy award As funniest male standup comic Seinfeld is almost philosophical when he discusses his he knows All about but Doest claim to have the deep Down answer to the age old ques Tion

everyone gets caught up in and you actually Stop think which is the reason people will come out of a comedy show and that was so i cant remember anything the Guy i cant remember any of the watching to Brad Oswald when that wave catches you actually Stop thinking and you respond its psycho sexual or youre just responding to the human Seinfeld added that being successful As a standup comedian re quires a Little More than just being the class Clown or the life of the i think a lot of people have a sense of but to make it work for a group of you have to understand the he everyone can be funny

comedians he saw on television people like Alan Bill Robert Klein and virtually anyone who showed up to crack a few jokes on the de Sullivan but his most prominent comedic influence came from much closer to my dad was a very funny and watching him make people laugh All the time when i was a i really saw the Joy in he it affected me a some times i feel like him when in you every body talks about How they Start to feel like their father at a certain age i feel that when in per forming he was a i used to watch him and he had a Way of kind of getting up on his toes when he was going to make the and i sometimes find my self doing that in my act getting up on my toes like in making a he passed away a few years still makes me Seinfeld said he Hopes his series will contain the sort of Downto Earth comedy that attracted him to his career in the first its he that sadly lacking in prime time these when i watch most to sit everybody so witty that i cant believe he Ive never been in situations like where everyone always has the perfect were just trying to keep it there Are a lot of funny conversations that people have that Are very they dont sound like they had it just sounds like the Way people that what were trying
