Cleese And Seinfeld On Creativity

Leave a comment

A couple of videos, one featuring John Cleese, the other Jerry Seinfeld, both dealing with creative process.
It is interesting to see the discipline involved in creating works, that when presented, seem chaotic on one hand and casual on the other.
Firstly, Cleese. (Who looks relatively young in this.)
Eric McKiddie has a post in which he makes three suggestions for sermon preparation based on this video.


Secondly Seinfeld.
Remarkable that his work is structured down to the number of syllables.
Steven Altrogge’s observation about this is if Seinfeld can expend such time and craft for a mundane joke, how can sermon writers commit anything less to their work?
