Is This Anything?

by Jerry Seinfeld

Is This Anything?

Jerry Seinfeld

Overview

For some, making people laugh comes easy. To these people, entertainment is second nature.

Jerry Seinfeld, world-famous comedian, and star of his eponymous hit sitcom has always loved comedy more than anything else. His passion began as a child and later took him to Manhattan, where he began his career as a stand-up. After decades of monumental success, he has no problem sharing his personal stories and philosophies regarding comedy.

Is This Anything? is not the traditional celebrity memoir. Instead of interviews with close family and friends, Seinfeld's memoir is a collection of all the material he's saved through his decades in comedy, organized chronologically. It offers a view of material generating and developing in real-time, interspersed with personal anecdotes from the comedian's life.

"I do not get upset with myself when I am dumb. Because the essential build blocks of comedy, very often, are an elegant intertwining of really dumb and really smart."
