On Letterman, Seinfeld re-does his first stand-up set from Late Night

David Letterman's farewell celebration continued on Friday's Late Show. If some of the material in Jerry Seinfeld's stand-up routine below seems a little dated (people get weather from the TV, not their iPhones?), that's because it's based on Seinfeld's first stand-up gig on Letterman's Late Night, back in 1982. The audience doesn't know that, so it's something of a spoiler, but really, Seinfeld pulls it off. And awkward childhood stories age better than fat jokes.

Things get a bit more topical and personal when Letterman interviewed Seinfeld — well, Seinfeld interviewed Letterman — which you can watch here and here. For Jerry's old jokes, watch below. —Peter Weber
