Jerry Seinfeld

 The comedian went digital Friday with the launch of his own website featuring his standup routines. JerrySeinfeld.com will be the home for video of nearly every recorded comedy performance given by Seinfeld - more than 1,000 clips. He told The New York Times that being able to relay original ideas to an audience is one advantage of putting his content on the Web. "Why would I talk to a TV executive at this point, and ask them what they think? If I have this idea for a TV show, I can just put it up on the internet."
