Jerry Seinfeld's First TV Appearance (VIDEO)
A video of a young Jerry Seinfeld performing stand-up comedy in 1977 is making the rounds on the Web.
In the clip, Seinfeld, wearing glasses and a wide-collared shirt, jokes about Roosevelt Island's "new tramway," the tram connecting Manhattan to the narrow swath of land in the East River.
"I think that this is a terrific thing," Seinfeld says. "The city's on the verge of bankruptcy [and] they're putting up rides for us."
The YouTube description says the video is from Celebrity Cabaret, a weekly show hosted by Richard Hall, and that it's the comedian's first appearance on national television. But E! Online calls it his "Very first TV gig."
