Larry David on why he started doing standup

From Larry David's WGA Awards acceptance speech:

One night I went to The Improv and saw a bunch of comedians and I thought, "Jesus these people seem just like me." They're complete losers who get up and do nothing but talk about how miserable they are. Are you kidding? I can do that.

Stand up is definitely where a comedian earns his chops. John Cleese was a member of the Cambridge Footlights for years - no doubt it helped him contribute to Monty Python and write Fawlty Towers.
