He may be one of the most famous stand-up comedians in the world, but it's still astounding to watch his muscular work ethic on full display as he explains how he writes a joke about Pop-Tarts. He also shows that he does all his writing by hand -- and even wrote all his Seinfeld scripts on looseleaf paper with Larry David.
Even when he's discussing how writing the segue between a joke about Pop-Tarts and a joke about chimps is "like songwriting," where each syllable counts, it's clear that he has this craft down to a science.
