Though nary a mention of the internet went by in the hey days of Seinfeld, it looks like Jerry’s really joining the 21st century. The New York Times reports that, starting Friday, JerrySeinfeld.com will debut as a source for a whole plethora of recorded stand-up comedy performances by the man himself. It’ll even include the really old stuff, like a 1977 appearance on Celebrity Cabaret.
As to why he’s creating the site, Seinfeld has this to say: “I really thought, ‘Where’s my stuff going to be when I’m dead? Is it just gone for all time? Who could sift through it? I thought, I should filter this out and be the judge of what I thought was good.”
I don’t know if he really has to worry about his material ever going away, since it seems every channel plays 18 reruns of Seinfeld every day, but the point is still well taken!
