“Wait, doesn’t Steven know Jerry was caught making out during Schindler’s List?”

SUNDAY AM: I couldn’t resist a Deadline caption contest for this. George Clooney photobombs Steven Spielberg and Jerry Seinfeld and wife Jessica at the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s 2013 Ambassadors For Humanity gala held in NYC on Friday. Clooney at the event received the Spielberg-founded foundation’s Ambassador For Humanity Award for his global humanitarian efforts in Haiti and throughout Africa. Have fun with this but, in keeping with DH policy that we don’t do personal, leave Jessica out of it. Winners announced Monday.

Jerry Seinfeld’s flacks announced this morning that, coinciding with the 30th anniversary of his first national broadcast appearance, the comedian has launched his personal website, www.jerryseinfeld.com, offering fans daily video clips from his more than 30 years of television stand-up performances. The site went live today at 9 AM. On the site, Seinfeld explains why he was inspired to create this digital archive, remembering his experiences as a 10-year-old, fascinated by stand-up comedians on TV. “Somewhere out there are 10 year olds just waiting to get hooked on this strange pursuit. This is for them,” he writes. “I’m just hoping somehow it will keep this silliness going.”
Ranging from less than 30 seconds up to two minutes in length, each daily grouping of three clips will only be available for 24 hours, after which they will be replaced by three new hand-picked bits. The clips cover the entirety of Seinfeld’s televised stand-up career, from 1977 to present, including appearances on talk shows hosted by Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, David Letterman and Jay Leno, as well as other televised stand-up performances, including the stand-up performances recorded for the iconic TV series Seinfeld.
