WE RECYCLE: Tonight I caught

WE RECYCLE: Tonight I caught Colin Quinn's new Comedy Central show "Tough Crowd," which just began this week and was actually quite funny. As his panel for the "Politically Incorrect"-like show, Quinn managed to bring on top-notch talent like Jerry Seinfeld (!), my new best friend Sarah Silverman, and comic Jim Norris, the former "Opie and Anthony" associate who I saw in a comedy club just a few months ago. The panel was discussing something related to the Special Olympics, and Seinfeld told a joke ("what is the situation with handicapped parking at the Special Olympics?") that, while funny, is at least 10 years old. I mean, Jerry always used to go on Letterman and Leno and use recycled material from his show, but it was always from recent episodes, not from a decade ago. Didn't Seinfeld make a huge deal about retiring his material from the days of his sitcom? I mean, he just made a whole movie about his brand-new material- why not use some of that?
