Once upon a time, comedian Jerry Seinfeld was a little boy. Well, maybe not such a little boy, but 33 years ago at the age of 27, he made his debut on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show.
With all the old-timer stand-up comedy flashbacks we've shared, Seinfeld, now 59, is still one of the youngest professional comedians out there.
Carson introduces him as a young comedian from New York who has worked a lot of small clubs in New York and Los Angeles. Although he started out doing stand-up comedy, today he is best known for playing a semi-fictional version of himself in the sitcom Seinfeld, which he co-created and co-wrote with Larry David.
Here's Seinfeld's first appearance on late-night TV. Enjoy!
