Caught on Tape! Super Nerdy Jerry Seinfeld Tells His First TV Joke

Before he moved in next to Kramer, before he battled Donald Trump, Jerry Seinfeld was an incredibly geeky up-and-coming stand-up comic.

In advance of Friday's launch of his very own website, JerrySeinfeld.com, the legendary comedian is opening up the vaults to give fans a taste of his trademark humor in embryonic form.

The clip is taken from Seinfeld's very first TV gig on a 1977 nationally syndicated New York-set show called Celebrity Cabaret. It finds the funnyman, bushy-haired, bespectacled and barely old enough to drink, uttering his first televised wisecrack about real-life amusement park rides in the Big Apple, including a roller-coaster ride through the ghetto ("That'll be the first roller coaster where they scream on the flat part of the ride.").

So was Jerry master of his pre-sitcom domain? You be the judge.
