Garr, I didn't sense enough irony in your comment about "a typical summer day on the Oregon coast". You're going to make people want to move there.

Attention readers (and viewers): note the need for a long-sleeved sweatshirt on a beautiful summer day!

Go Beavs!

I knew you would enjoy this film, Garr. For those of your readers who are full-time or professional speakers, I think the manner, tone and flow will resonate a lot more.

For the person who have to occasionally present, I'm hopeful that the movie demonstrates that a great presentation does require some level of risk-taking, coupled with practice, practice, practice.

Reading this Blog posting puts me in the mood to watch the documentary all over again.

Great post Mitch. I am always amazed at the poise of many comedians. It's their profession to present night in and night out. They have the added pressure of a paying audience who expect the comedian(s) to make them laugh, a lot, all night. We truly can learn a lot from them. I'll definitely pick up a copy of Seinfeld's documentary.

Thank you, Garr! The documentary looks really interesting. Unfortunately, after 10 minutes of surfing the usual suspects it seems the DVD is only available in the US or with the American regional code.

Does anybody know whether there is a way to get a European copy in London?

Sean Murphy

The movie, and the scene you focus on, really resonated with me as well. I blogged about it here

http://www.skmurphy.com/blog/2008/02/25/while-we-pursue-our-dreams-they-can-pursue-us/

"Seinfeld’s objective, like those of a serial entrepreneur, was to create a new act from scratch. We watch him start out and he is strangely fumbling and awkward. We see a lot of backstage/offstage conversations. I speak a lot, normally to smaller crowds than Seinfeld does, but it was interesting to see him get the same 'pre-game jitters' I do in the few minutes before a presentation is slated to start. I guess that’s a sign that he is still taking risks to improve his act. If he didn't care he wouldn’t be nervous."

I think Seinfeld was pursuing his dream, and Orny was pursued by his.

Pete Thomas

Garr,

Great post. Watched the documentary today and also looked up a stand up comedy workshop in my area. Not that I want to be a comedian, but I want to improve my speaking and stage skills. Now to improve my slides etc etc etc.

Thanks a ton,

I think that inserting some funny stories as the comedians do is something great,but do not overdoing it,otherwise,you'll look like an acrobat at stage.

Watching the movie last night, I came to the same conclusion you did (and it was timely as I gave a presentation in the morning and took Jerry's advice of "never open with new material.")

Though I'm a loyal blog reader, it was through the wonders of Zemanta that your post came up while I was writing mine.

By way of intro, I'm Dan Pink's marketing advisor for Bunko.

Keep up the good work.

The question I have about photography and the "Golden Mean" is this...Do photographers conciously look for these patterns, or are they just taking pretty shots?

Films are made up of a series of individual images called frames. When these images are shown rapidly in succession, a viewer has the illusion that motion is occurring. The viewer cannot see the flickering between frames due to an effect known as persistence of vision,
