I'm watching Jerry Seinfeld's first HBO special "Stand Up Confidential". It's never been released on dvd so I'm watching a blurry VHS copy (thanks Alex!) It blends stand-up and sketch and features Larry Miller and Joel Hodgson. And it's not great.

Thank God for that. I'm sick of watching talented comedians succeeding. I've had it with people being better than me. I want to see good not great. I want to see the struggle. I want to be reminded it takes a very long time to gain stature. That's inspiring. Nobody's great right out of the box and that's the reason to keep fighting.
