Jerry Seinfeld Announces First Comedy Book In More Than 25 Years
Following his insanely popular bestseller 'Seinlanguage' released in 1993, comedian Jerry Seinfeld has revealed he'll be dropping another comedy book this October.
Publishing giant Simon & Schuster announced the news of the currently untitled book on Thursday, revealing that it's set to be released in stores on October 6.
Seinfeld's latest project will apparently feature a selection of his jokes, notes, and musings over the years arranged by decade starting from the 1970s when he was a college student and breaking into the comedy scene.
“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,” said Simon & Schuster’s Jonathan Karp.
“We are honoured to be Jerry Seinfeld’s publisher and expect his book to be both a highlight of 2020 and a lasting work for anyone who appreciates the thrilling but unforgiving art of stand-up comedy writing.”
Seinfeld added, “Whenever I came up with a funny bit, 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.”
“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.”
Whether or not Seinfeld's latest literary work can outshine the genius that is Kramer's Coffee Table Book of Coffee Tables remains to be seen.
Seinfeld's first book Seinlanguage was published in 1993 and was among the year's best sellers. He also penned the children’s book “Halloween,” which was published in 2002.
The book is slated to hit stores on October 6, 2020.
