Jerry Seinfeld had a few cringe-worthy jobs including selling light bulbs over the phone and knockoff jewelry on sidewalks, according to Entertainment Weekly. He also served food in a Manhattan restaurant while practicing his act at comedy clubs at night. He said, 'the most exciting part of my whole career was when I handed back my waiter's apron. To me, that was making it.'
