Seinfeld on comedy

The New York Times magazine does a piece on Jerry Seinfeld.

I particularly liked this bit:
Almost from the beginning, Seinfeld has forsworn graphic language in his bits, dismissing it as a crutch.
I don't mind cursing and smut, but it is not elegant and, as usually applied in stand-up comedy, not very clever.
