Seinfeld on Carson for the first time

Johnny's reaction at the end is pretty cute.

Lots of good Seinfeld on Letterman clips at YouTube also. Watched a bunch and I feel like there's an almost songlike verse-chorus-verse quality to his bits. They last a few minutes, there's a distinct rhythm, always a few peaks but also some valleys where you wonder if it's worth it, and then they end with a real zinger.

Especially nice to have this stuff online since Seinfeld doesn't really have an album that captures him in his prime. (His post-TV fame "I'm Telling You for the Last Time" is shit compared to his earlier stuff.)
