Comedians early in their careers

"COMEDY CLUB SHOOT-OUT Vol. 1 features 1990s clips of several famous comics.
Jerry Seinfeld is disappointing. Drew Carey blanks at the beginning of his set. Adam Sandler in his third-ever appearance (according to him) seems tentative. David Spade looks like a teenager. Bill Maher isn't on for 30 seconds. Tommy Chong is nervous. On the plus side, Phil Hartman's impressions in foreign languages are quite witty. Ellen DeGeneres constructs a nice circular routine. John Mulrooney's TV art class host is spot-on.
