It’s been 25 years since his last book about comedy and his life, Seinlanguage, came out back in 1995. So it’s certainly long overdue that Jerry Seinfeld is writing another one.
“Whenever I came up with a funny bit,” Seinfeld said in a statement, “whether it happened on a stage, in a conversation, or working it out on my preferred canvas, the big yellow legal pad, I kept it in one of those old-school accordion folders,” Seinfeld, 65, said in a statement. “So, I have every piece of stand-up comedy I thought was worth saving from 45 years of hacking away at this for all I was worth.”
“Not only is the book brilliantly crafted and laugh out loud funny on every single page, but readers will be able to see Jerry and his comedy evolve through the years,” Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, who is publishing the book, said in a statement.
