Jerry Seinfeld's Worst Bomb Ever Sounds Very, Very Uncomfortable

It's easy to forget that even the most successful of comedians once had to rise their way up through the ranks.

Luckily, Jerry Seinfeld reminds us of this fact in a new web exclusive for "The Tonight Show," in which he shares the story of his worst standup set ever. Back in 1977, when he was 22, Seinfeld scored a gig at a disco in Queens on New Year's Eve. Let's just say it didn't go well, and there's little evidence anyone at the venue even knew he was there.

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
